Introduction: Full mouth rehabilitation in patients with ectodermal dysplasia (ED) is challenging to accomplish, especially because the affected individuals are quite young when they are assessed; therefore, esthetics is an imperative concern. This clinical report explains the oral rehabilitation of two sisters diagnosed with ED, which shows the optimistic effects on the physical, emotional, and social life of the patients. Case Report: In this clinical report, two treated sisters had anodontia that made difficulties in their eating and speaking. The two sisters had been treated with fixed partial dentures and implants supported prostheses after extracting nonrestorable deciduous teeth. The present permanent teeth were maintained to preserve the Periodontal ligament (PDL) and increase the patient occlusal awareness. Discussion: Elements that are necessary to be focused in designing dental treatments for ED patients include age, existent teeth, oral hygiene, psychosocial environment, Occlusal vertical dimension (OVD), bone volume, skeletal growth and development, orthodontics and/or orthognathic surgery, implants, time required for the procedure, maintenance, and cost of treatment.
