Abstract

ABSTRACT

Background Both cleft lip and palate (CLP) and ectodermal dysplasia (ED) are congenital conditions that hamper conventional prosthetic rehabilitation. CLP adult patients usually have sequelae and atrophy of the maxilla. In addition, dental malformation and positioning due to ED often limit the prosthetic alternatives for oral rehabilitation.

Case report This clinical report describes a challenging case of a patient with combination of CLP and ED, who was treated with dental implants and ceramic fixed prostheses, according to the patient’s desire to have a pleasant smile and the comfort of fixed dentures.

Conclusion This report shows that ceramic implant-supported fixed prostheses are predictably safe when sufficient alveolar bone is present in a patient with both CLP and ED, thus restoring aesthetics and function.
