A 16-year-old girl presenting with ectodermal dysplasia has undergone double jaw orthognathic surgery to correct mandibular prognathism and maxillary anteroposterior deficiency. Ten months later the patient had a second surgery that included the placement of 11 implants along with bone grafting to the maxilla and mandible. Fourteen months after the second surgery, the definitive ceramic work was fabricated and screw retained. Even though the patient was still an adolescent at the time of the first surgery, psychological effects of the deformity may require an early solution for this kind of patient.
