A wide array of syndromes reported in the literature have significant impact on the craniofacial complex, with great influence on the facial aspect, which is usually typical of each syndrome. For this reason, this chapter refers to these disorders as “syndromes with unusual facies”, as described in the classical book of Gorlin et al.,. Affecting the craniofacial complex, these syndromes also often have significant implications for dental treatment and affected individuals may have peculiar dental needs.
