Alveolar bone loss subsequent to long-term edentulism and trauma may be severe and treatment plan is always an esthetic and functional challenge. Implant supported hybrid prosthesis is widely regarded as an effective treatment option for patients with excessive and irregular bone loss. However, implant placement is occasionally impossible without surgical procedures in such cases. This case report presents rehabilitation of 19-year-old maxillary anterior edentulous male patient with maxillary anterior bone defect and excessive cross-bite anterior closure with multidisciplinary approach. The patient was rehabilitated with implant supported hybrid prosthesis with Malo Bridge design following autogeneous iliac bone augmentation, teeth leveling with orthodontic treatment, and surgical placement of three implants. Esthetics, pleasing phonetics and function were achieved as desired with this treatment option and no complications were observed.
