The number of hybrid orbitals is equivalent to the number of electron density regions when looking at VSEPR structures. For example, sp3 would have 4 equivalent orbitals, and with 4 regions of electron density, the most stable shape would be tetrahedral. Similarly, with sp3d2, the most stable shape would be octahedral.
