The aim of this clinical report is to describe the prosthodontic management of a young boy aged 7 years affected by ectodermal dysplasia (ED). Dental treatment can vary depending on the severity of the disease (tooth size, morphology, and the amount of available alveolar bone). New technologies, such as adhesive dentistry, overdenture, and complete denture represent some of the options in the management of the rehabilitation of the patient affected by ED. The conical shaped central incisor was modified using composite resin followed by complete denture. Prosthodontic and restorative treatment was provided for the psychological and social comfort of the young patient.
