OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this case report is to present the clinical course of full mouth rehabilitation in an 1 8-year-old female patient with ectodermal dysplasia who was treated with implant-supported fixed partial dentures for the mandible and the maxilla.
CASE REPORT: Fourteen dental implants (8 in the maxilla and 6 in the mandible) were placed simultaneously after full mouth extraction and alveoloplasty surgery. After 6 months of healing, prosthetic rehabilitation was started for screw-retained fixed partial dentures. The patient was followed for one year and a peri-implant maintenance regime established for six-month recalls. The patient was satisfied with the prosthesis both esthetically and functionally. Furthermore, the patient reported significant improvements in oral function and psychosocial activities.
CONCLUSION: The use of dental implants to support full mouth prosthetic rehabilitation for adolescents with ectodermal dysplasia may provide a considerable improvement in function and esthetic compared to conventional removable prosthetic options. This has the potential to enhance the quality of life for these patients.
