There is no specific treatment for cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD), and management is based on each person's symptoms. Most people with CCD need dental care due to various dental abnormalities. If bone density is below normal, supplements of calcium and vitamin D may be needed, and preventive treatment for osteoporosis may be started at a young age. Those with frequent ear infections may need ear tubes. Severe defects of the cranial vault (space in the skull occupied by the brain) should be protected by wearing helmets during high-risk activities. Surgery may be needed to correct any of various skeletal (bone) abnormalities.
