Öz Introduction: Typically, full arch reconstruction of edentulous ridges requires five to 10 dentalimplants; however, some patients demanding fixed implant-supported prostheses are not able to medically oreconomically afford complex bone grafts and/or a greater number of implants. These situations could pivot thetreatment plan toward the All-on-4 protocol.Case Report: A 65-years old female patient presented our clinic in with an edentulous maxilla andmandible. The All-on-4 protocol was selected for full mouth reconstruction. Four implants (Dentsply Ankylos,Mannheim, Germany) were inserted in the maxilla and mandible. Three months later, radiographic evaluationsconfirmed that the implants had successfully osseointegrated, so the prosthetic phase was initiated 2 weeksafter the placement of the healing caps. Next, diagnostic cast evaluation was performed. Because of the highvertical distance between the maxillary and mandibular arches, it was decided to fabricate a modified hybridprosthesis to rehabilitate hard and soft tissue at the same time.Discussion & Conclusion: A recent shift in practice paradigm has been to minimize treatment costsand patient morbidity while providing the most satisfying patient-centered treatment outcomes according tothe state of the art of dental practice. The “All-on-Four” treatment concept is an attempt to reach theseobjectives by providing relatively straight forward, predictable treatment option to rehabilitate edentulouspatients with a high outcome of quality of life.This clinical report described the diagnosis, treatment planning, surgical treatment, prosthodontictreatment, maintenance, complications, and a 6-months follow‐up of a patient who underwent treatment for afull-mouth rehabilitation with all-on-4 fixed implant-supported hybrid prostheses. In the present case a hybridprosthesis has produced a satisfactory outcome from both the esthetic and functional points of view.Keywords: All-On-4.
