Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) represents a group of hereditary skin disorders manifested by an exceptional tendency of the skin and mucosa to form bullae and vesicles following minor friction and trauma. The pathogenesis of these disorders is unknown. Depending on the type, the clinical manifestations vary from very mild to a disfiguring and disabling disease. Along with the systemic complications, the oral findings like early childhood caries, microstomia, and limited mouth opening are quite evident in these children. Health care professionals should be aware of preventive and therapeutic measures to be adopted in order to provide a safe and effective dental treatment in these patients. The present case documents a child diagnosed of EB with early childhood caries, describing the phases and difficulties of dental treatment, and also presents a novel impression technique.
