ABSTRACT
The article presents a case report that demonstrates a technique using magnets to enhance the retention of maxillary and mandibular prostheses in a nine-year-old patient with ectodermal dysplasia (ED). The authors introduce an alternative prosthetic design for children who have ED and discuss the challenges associated with restoring form and function using prostheses.

    In prosthodontic procedures, the most important consideration in recording horizontal jaw relation is to obtain a baseline from where it is possible to relate the mandibular movements in an articulator. This baseline position of the mandible corresponds to stationary opening and closing axis or...
