Clinical Paper



Replacement of missing tooth has evolved from removable dentures to fixed dentures and recently to dental implants. The need of sufficient bone around the endosseous implant is critical for the success of the implant. The present study was aimed to evaluate the efficacy of a novel implant (HYBRID IMPLANT-submitted for patency) for replacement of the missing teeth.

Materials and methods

1. Research design A prospective research design with a follow up after 1st week ,2nd week ,3rd week,1st month ,3rd month,6th month and 1st year postoperatively. 2. Sampling method Population: All patients who reported for replacement of missing teeth. Inclusion criteria 1. All patients above the age group of 16years 2. Patients who need replacement of single or multiple teeth in the anterior or posterior region of the maxilla and mandible. Exclusion criteria 1. Medically compromised patients. 2. Patients having craniofacial syndromes. 3. Sample size 5 patients were selected taking into consideration the inclusion and exclusion Criteria. Results PAIN All the patients were non symptomatic during the 1st month to 1st year postoperative periods.


We experienced mobility during the 1st and 2nd postoperative periods where the implants were inserted in the mandibular molar region.

Bone loss

Radiographic assessment showed no bone loss during the postoperative periods.


The novel implant (hybrid implant) showed good stability and minimum patient discomfort during one year postoperative period evaluation. The implant system leads to new prospect in the field of prosthetic rehabilitation.
