Down's syndrome is a genetic disease resulting from a trisomy in the twenty-first chromosome characterized by generalized growth and mental deficiencies. Patients with Down's syndrome develop more extensive gingivitis at an earlier stage, and exhibit rapid and generalized periodontal breakdown in early adulthood. Individuals with Down's syndrome differ in their oral condition compared with the healthy population. For dental practitioners it is difficult to decide a particular course of treatment. Here is a case report of a patient presented with Down's syn- drome and its treatment protocol.
