Dental treatment of ectodermal dysplasia in children: a case report
Mohammad Ebrahimi Saravi , Anahita Lotfizadeh , Azam Nahvi
Abstract:   (339 Views)
Background and Aim: Ectodermal dysplasia is a genetic condition that affects ectodermal derivatives such as skin, hair, nails, teeth and sweat glands. The disease is diagnosed at birth or in early childhood. Tooth developmental disorders are observed in different forms in these children. These disorders expose children to ridicule, which can lead to psychological problems; Therefore, the physical treatment of these children is very important, especially in the oral area. This report describes the appearance and dental treatments performed on a 6-year-old girl with ectodermal dysplasia.
Case Report: A 6-year-old girl with no systemic disease complained of a history of being ridiculed by her peers. Lack of deciduous and permanent teeth and conical teeth were visible in this child. The child had reduced, thin hair, hypotonic lips, and a dry mouth. The bridge of the nose also seemed concaved. The baby's teeth had no caries or periodontal disease. The treatment plan for this child included a composite build-up of the conical anterior teeth and then the design of a removable partial denture to preserve the space of the missing teeth as well as their replacement.
Conclusion: Removable prostheses are a suitable treatment option for children with ectodermal dysplasia. After the age of 18, surgical treatments for implant placement and then placement of implant-based prostheses can be considered.
