Ectodermal dysplasia is a large complex group of disorders resulting in abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. Oral manifestations include partial or complete anodontia and poor bony bases affecting aesthetics and function. Dental management in such patients is difficult and requires intervention throughout the growth period of the patient, until a definitive treatment is rendered. This case report describes the prosthetic rehabilitation of a young patient with total anodontia, which is a rare event in contrast to partial anodontia. A unique approach was devised to improve the retention and stability of compromised ridges. Conventional dentures were delivered to the patient with like-pole magnets incorporated in the occlusal surface of posterior denture teeth of upper and lower denture facing correspondingly which resulted in repulsive force. This enhanced retention and stability of the dentures.
