Precision Attachment Telescopic overdenture Yellow Gold Material
- Introduction A telescopic denture is a type of partial denture that
provides the patient with a high degree of oral comfort .
- This aspect is, however, only one of the many advantages of a
telescopic denture. If the denture is fabricated correctly, the
telescopic denture should also have a positive impact on
conservation of the abutment teeth. The rigid connection to the
residual dentition leads to secondary splinting and integrated tilt
prevention with mainly axial loading of the teeth, so that the
abutment teeth are protected and any existing mobility is reduced .
- Consequently even teeth with an unpredictable prognosis can be used
as abutment teeth. This study examined the impact of incorporating
a telescopic denture on abutment tooth loss. A very large number of
1758 abutment teeth were enclosed in the study to evaluate the risk
of losing teeth used for retaining a telescopic denture.
- A telescopic prosthesis can be designed to be cemented with light
cement, which can satisfy a patient’s need for a fixed prosthesis,
but also allow for removal by a dentist to curette deep proximal
pockets without the hindrance of proximal connectors (solder
- Nonpermanent cement also enables the restoration to be easily
removed should future modification be necessary.
- A telescopic prosthesis offers the advantage that should a
complication arise with an abutment, whether a natural tooth or
implant, it can often be resolved.
- When a telescopic retainer is used in a fixed prosthesis, instead
of the cement seal breaking at the metal-tooth interface, the
weaker cement used between metal and metal will fail first. This
prevents leakage between a natural abutment and its overprosthetic
restoration that could contribute to cement failure or caries.
- An osseous integrated implant becomes integrated in a rigid
fashion. Because there is a disparity between the physiologic
movement of the natural abutment and an implant abutment,
telescoping the natural abutment relieves stress to both abutments
and prevents decay secondary to cement washout
