Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) syndromes are a heterogenous group of inherited diseases characterized by abnormal development of tissues of ectodermal origin. X-linked hypohidrotic ED (HED) is the most commonly occurring form of EDs that is characterized by the triad of oligo/anodontia, hypotrichosis and hypo-anhidrosis. Oligo/anodontia leads to compromised chewing and swallowing abilities, esthetics, speech and social relations. Prosthetic rehabilitation at an early age is essential to improve oral functions and reduce social impairment.
