Creating Esthetic and Function for Patient with Evi-dent Ectodermal Dysplasia by Magnetic Over-Denture- A Clinical Case Report
Abstract: The ectodermal dysplasias is an extremely rare congenital, heterogeneous and non- progressive disorder. The clinical manifestations of ectodermal dysplasia cause considerable social problems. Prosthodontic treatment of the clinical traits of ectodermal dysplasia can have a deep impact on these patients. The possibility to look and feel like their peers is paramount for their psychological development. The literature has demonstrated the benefits that corrective prosthodontics has for the self- esteem and social well-being of these patients. Magnets have been used in prosthodontics for many years, but success has been limited because of their susceptibility to corrosion by the saliva and their retentive force is weak relative to the initial retention offered by mechanical attachments. This present article describe the esthetic rehabilitation of partially edentulous ectodermal dysplasia patient with the help of over-denture on roots with magnetic post.
