Telescopic denture

telescopic-dentureThe telescopic denture is recommended to the patient if he has very few teeth or the remaining teeth are too small and therefore no fixed prosthesis can be made. It can be used in older patients when there is little or thin bone available or they do not want implants. For the remaining teeth or if there are no remaining teeth, we build the telescopic prosthesis relying on mini implants. If the telescopic prosthesis replaces a part of the entire denture, it is called partial prosthesis. First, we make primary “pillar” crowns on the remaining teeth. Pillar crowns are actually crowns with small metal caps, which the dentist attaches to the pillar teeth. On the secondary telescope we put the teeth crowns that slide on the caps of the primary pillar teeth to fix the denture. The telescopic crown is precisely and closely connected and can be easily removed. The telescopic denture is comfortably fixed, does not move during chewing and it should only be removed for cleaning. The telescopic denture is not visible from the outside, so this method can be used to produce fully realistic dental prostheses. From the outside of the telescopes inside the pillar teeth, nothing is visible, telescopic crowns firmly hold the denture in its place and therefore there is no need for denture adhesive either. Through the pillar teeth such natural forces prevail in the direction of the periodontal which will reduce the chance of loosening the teeth. The telescopic crown material is medical gold or zirconium. The dental prosthesis is usually made of plastic that fits into a metal frame, allowing for weightless and secure fit. The telescopic crown can be fixed with mini dental implants and this is a high-quality change compared to the traditional removable denture. The traditional dental prosthesis only adheres to the palate, and the telescopic dental prosthesis fixed on the mini implants stays fixed, does not move, does not slip. This solution can be used even if conventional implants cannot be implanted, so mini implants can also provide solutions for older patients to fix the prosthesis.

Let’s get to know each other: We would like to give our prospective clients the opportunity to know more about us, our clinic, the doctors who are going to do their treatment, and we also want to get to know our customers’ ideas and wishes regarding their dental treatment and the expected results. In the first consultation we will get a comprehensive picture about the state of the teeth of our future patients. Therefore, first we are waiting our customers for a free consultation.
