Ectodermal dysplasia is a hereditary disorder of ectodermal origin. A 12-year-old boy was referred for management of the oral manifestations of his ectodermal dysplasia. An overdenture retained by natural teeth for the maxilla and a double-crown–retained denture for the mandible were made. Double-crown–retained dentures may be modified into complete dentures if the abutment teeth are lost. The patient was instructed to maintain oral hygiene and return periodically for follow-up visits. This report describes a potential routine approach to restoring the appearance, function, and psyche of a growing boy with ectodermal dysplasia. (Quintessence Int 2011;42:235–238)

Key words: ectodermal dysplasia, double-crown–retained denture, growing patient, overdenture, prosthetic treatment
