Abstract

Background. Ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is a group of heterogeneous disorders that result in hypodontia. In pediatric patients with ED, using prostheses to restore form and function can be a challenge. Case Description. The authors present a case report that demonstrates a technique using magnets to enhance the retention of maxillary and mandibular prostheses in a 9-year-old boy. Clinical Implication. The case report introduces an alternative prosthetic design for children who have ED.
