The construction of removable dentures is now more accessible due to the Telescopic crown. This procedure is a pure German invention and is one of the most popular dental procedures used by Dr. Maurer.
The Telescopic denture ideally requires 4 remaining teeth in one jaw. Those teeth will be prepared (reduced) and they will be covered with thin caps (Primary Telescopic crowns) which will be cemented permanently onto the prepared remaining teeth. Based on the Matrix – Patrix Principal, the overdenture will be sliding perfectly over the primary telescopic crowns because the secondary telescopic crowns in the denture itself are hollow and in equal number with primary telescopes. Compared to clasps dentures, the Telescopic denture keeps the remaining teeth splinted together with little to no movement, allowing mainly the axial distribution of forces on the remaining teeth while chewing.
Benefits of a Telescopic overdenture are :
- Boost self-confidence in your smile
- Prevention of bone loss
- Replace missing teeth
- Restore the ability to speak and chew
- Provides support to the periodontal structures
- Maintain the harmony of your face
