Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is a genetically heterogeneous condition resulting from clinical anomalies of structures derived from the ectoderm, such as hair, nails, sweat glands, and teeth. Such children often affected with esthetics, mastication, speech and social integration. The aim of this case report is to describe the prosthetic rehabilitation of a child of hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (ED) with maxillary and mandibular dentures. In conclusion, the prosthetic management is a noninvasive procedure, reversible, costeffective, viable, and efficient treatment for a child with hypodontia to restore esthetics, function and to satisfy the child.
