Immediate loading procedures may cause discomfort to the patient and increase the possibility of damage to the surgical site during prosthetic restorations. The aim of this clinical report is to describe an alternative method to fabricating a mandibular hybrid prosthesis in 3 days without taking an impression. Five implants were placed in the anterior region of an edentulous mandible and restored with a definitive mandibular hybrid prosthesis using a unique acrylic resin framework. This acrylic resin framework enabled the fabrication of the metal framework of the mandibular hybrid prosthesis without taking a final impression. The step-by-step technique is described.
