What is a telescopic prosthesis?

The telescopic prosthesis is a dental prosthesis that fits both smaller and larger parts of the dentition, up to an entire half of the jaw. The prerequisite for this type of prosthesis is the presence of a number of teeth that fit into the so-called abutments. In addition to these, all the teeth that will subsequently be replaced by the telescopic prosthesis are ground and crowned, thus providing a future support for the prosthesis in the mandible. This is based on friction and negative pressure and, depending on the size and individually adapted to the activity to be performed, can be further supplemented by small visible clips. Their name refers precisely to this principle. Just like in the case of a telescope, two elements are inserted into each other: the primary crowns, that is, the crowned teeth of the jaw, and their counterparts located in the prosthesis, the secondary crowns. The telescopic prosthesis can therefore be flexibly inserted or removed at any time and is easy to clean.

Questions and answers

Materials used

The telescopic prosthesis is almost indistinguishable from natural teeth. The rubber is composed of polymethylmethacrylate, naturally dyed with partly inorganic and organic agents. Normally, a ceramic shell is placed on steel cores embedded in the material to mimic the tooth. Alternatively, a plastic shell is used. While this is less difficult in comparison, the material vibrates less audibly when chewing or speaking. On the contrary, ceramic is characterized by its durability and color fastness. Regardless of the material chosen, a telescopic prosthesis will last for several decades if good oral hygiene is maintained. It can also be extended and readjusted in case of further tooth loss. It is important to us that your wishes and ideas are always taken into consideration, so that the materials used represent for you the best choice between costs, advantages and aesthetics and that your naturally beautiful smile is preserved.

The treatment

The mandible and the prosthesis are adapted to each other in several sessions and with multiple impressions. First the abutments are defined and the primary crowns are prepared, then step by step the prosthesis is optimized in appearance and comfort. Step by step, you have a detailed influence not only on the materials mentioned above and the exact color match of the prosthesis, but also on the shape of the prosthesis that makes up your new smile. For example, the incisor line could be straightened or realigned. During this process, up to the final check-up appointment, you will be able to get used to the use, cleaning, disassembly and insertion, with our assistance, and have the opportunity to ask questions.
