Title:  A fixed denture for a child with epidermolysis bullosa simplex

Abstract:  Aim To report the caries treatment and delivery of a fixed denture for a 3-year-old girl with epidermolysis bullosa simplex (EBS). Case Report EBS is manifested on the skin or mucous membranes where skin separation is easily induced by trauma. Full-mouth rehabilitation under in-patient general anaesthesia was performed to the patient in conjunction with proper pre- and postoperative care. A fixed denture was fabricated and installed to replace the extracted teeth without later causing irritation on the mucosa. The prosthesis restored aesthetics and provided comfort without imposing the burden of compliance on the patient. Conclusion Aided by meticulous pre- and postoperative care and oral hygiene reinforcement, comprehensive dental treatment coupled with fixed denture delivery can greatly improve the life quality and aesthetics for children with EBS.
