When inflammatory changes around the tooth reach the periodontal ligament and alveolar bone, it is known as periodontitis, which ultimately leads to tooth loss. Generalized Stage IV periodontitis is characterized by the rapid destruction of periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. It is characterized by pathologic migration of teeth and tooth loss, producing esthetic and functional problems for the patient. For restoration of the lost tooth, implant-supported rehabilitation is one of the most successful treatment options, for a fixed prosthesis. In postsurgical prosthodontic rehabilitation, hybrid prosthesis offers a number of advantages including reducing the impact force of dynamic occlusal loads, being less expensive to fabricate, and highly esthetic restorations. The purpose of this clinical report is to present the clinical experience and 1-year follow-up of treating a middle-aged patient suffering from generalized Stage IV periodontitis by means of the implant-supported hybrid prosthesis.
