Prosthetic Rehabilitation with Basal Implant Supported Hybrid Prostheses of a Patient Diagnosed with Ectodermal Dysplasia
Ectodermal Dysplasia (ED) is a hereditary condition associated with the abnormal development of two or more structures derived from the embryonic ectodermic layer. Intraoral findings in these patients encompasses complete or partial hypodontia, anodontia, retained teeth, loss of VDO, protruding lips, malformed and widely spaced teeth, and underdeveloped alveolar ridges. Consequently, the prosthetic rehabilitation of such a patient is considerably ambiguous. This article presents a clinical case of prosthetic rehabilitation of a patient diagnosed with hypohydrotic ectodermal dysplasia using hybrid maxillary and mandibular prostheses supported by basal implants.
