Abstract

Ectodermal dysplasia is a heterogeneous genetic condition affecting 1.6 to 22 per 100 000 people. Oral manifestations associated with this condition include hyperdontia, hypodontia, microdontia, and conical teeth. Traditional treatment consists of a combination of orthodontic and rehabilitation therapies. The initial treatment stage uses removable prostheses and interim crowns for long periods, thus increasing risks for developing secondary caries. This clinical report describes the use of direct composite resin bonding with preheated compactable resins applied to vacuum-formed trays filled with clear silicone. This restorative treatment provides predictable, inexpensive, minimally invasive, functional, and esthetic recovery before orthodontic treatment.
