Abstract

Periodontal diseases and wearing dentures for extended periods cause the atrophy of the alveolar ridges. Removable dentures are hard to manage for these kinds of patients. In order to construct fixed prostheses for these patients, complicated surgeries are necessary for implant placement. Hybrid prosthesis on tilted implants are simple solution for these kinds of patients. Two patients with severely atrophied alveolar ridges desired fixed dentures and were admitted to the prosthodontics clinic. Advanced surgical procedures were avoided, so they were rehabilitated with implant-retained hybrid dentures. The following case reports describe the treatment procedures for severe atrophic alveolar ridges (mandible and maxilla) with tilted implants via acrylic hybrid prosthesis. The distorted profiles of both patients were improved with these hybrid prosthesis. The implant-retained fixed hybrid prostheses is a conservative, feasible and reliable treatment alternative that does not require advanced surgery for the rehabilitation of edentulous atrophic jaws.
