Abstract

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a rare hereditary disorder of the connective tissue that can have oral manifestations that can complicate the prosthodontic rehabilitation of edentulous patients. Intraoral features such as fragile mucosa, impaired healing, limited intraoral space, and a deep palatal vault can compromise treatment with conventional complete dentures. This clinical report describes the management of a 30-year-old edentulous man with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome by using metal base complete dentures fabricated with selective laser melting (SLM) technology.
