Fixed full hybrid denture(All-on-4)

When a patient has lost all the teeth in the jaws due to accident or disease, removable dentures were the only option available for replacement. With the advent of implants, the whole arch of artificial teeth can now be replaced in a fixed manner. When the amount of remaining bone is good enough, an All-on-6 or All-on-8 implant technique would be the ideal choice to replace the teeth.  

Considering the cost involved to place so many implants and also the quantity of bone available, the ideal alternative would be a hybrid denture.
