Park, Kim, Park, and Lee: Full mouth rehabilitation of fully edentulous patient using implant hybrid prosthesis


Loss of teeth may not only imply impaired oral function and loss of alveolar bone but is also often accompanied by reduced self-confidence. This results in a larger problem with the fully edentulous patient. The patient introduced in this study showed multiple missing teeth and mobility of remaining teeth and wanted to have fixed dental prosthesis using implants. Remaining teeth were extracted because of periodontally bad prognosis. This article reports a satisfactory clinical and esthetic outcome of full mouth rehabilitation using implant hybrid prosthesis in fully edentulous patient.
