Choice of prosthetic rehabilitation in a completely edentulous patient is influenced to a great extent by the underlying residual bone. Although conventional dentures provide reliable service, their use in severly resorbed alveolar ridges present a challenging situation to a prosthodontist in terms of achieving retention and stability along with patient satisfaction. Implant retained hybrid denture in such cases offer a viable treatment modality. In this article, a clinical case has been presented where rehabilitation of a completely edentulous patient with resorbed mandibular ridges was done using implant retained mandibular hybrid prosthesis opposing conventional maxillary complete denture.
