Telescopic dentures have a history of more than 40 years of clinical application, and refer to removable dentures (removable dentures) that use telescopic crowns as retaining bodies.
The telescopic crown retainer is composed of an inner crown and an outer crown, the inner crown is glued to the abutment, and the outer crown and the removable denture are connected into a whole, and the retention force is generated by the fit between the inner crown and the outer crown.
When the telescopic denture repairs the missing teeth, the missing teeth and the abutment teeth are connected into a whole, which has good retention force, can bear more masticatory pressure than ordinary removable dentures, and can produce higher chewing efficiency than ordinary removable dentures; Because the telescopic denture has the effect of periodontal splint on the loosening of teeth caused by periodontal disease, it can preserve the remaining teeth for a long time, so it is very suitable for the restoration of missing teeth in patients with periodontal disease; and due to the exposed metal of the telescopic crown Rarely, telescopic dentures provide a natural and aesthetically pleasing restoration compared to removable dentures with snap rings (commonly known as "hooks"). Therefore, telescopic dentures are a kind of denture restoration method that patients with missing teeth are very willing to accept.
Telescopic denture is a denture restoration technology with a very complicated manufacturing process. At present, only a few specialized oral medical institutions can carry out this restoration.
