Telescopic prosthesis

Telescopic prostheses are especially suitable for elderly people

Especially for elderly people is telescopic prosthesis a fantastic supply which is first and foremost really easy to handle and can be fitted again without any problems when loosing another teeth. A telescopic prosthesis is an invention in the future. A bit more elegance and hold! Who puts emphasis on these should choose a telescopic crown, which is able to replace many lost teeth in the jaw. "The supply with telescopes leaves nothing to be desired aesthetically and functionally".

A telescopic prosthesis (better: "partial prosthesis with telescopic crowns") is a removable dental prosthesis which serves as a replacement for missing teeth. It can be categorized as a combined tooth replacement. It is a premium quality dental replacement, which is why it has become a standard in recent years. The telescopic prosthesis consists of a non-removable and a removable part. Firstly, the inner crowns need to be anchored in the mouth, either with cement on the patient's own teeth or implants. The outer crown is worked in the actual prosthesis. When the prosthesis is inserted the inner and outer crowns slip into each other like parts of a puzzle – the crowns slide on each other as the limbs of telescopic stabs. The name of the telescopic mechanism can be derived from this attachment mechanism.

Advantages

The telescopic prosthesis is hold safely by the telescopic crowns and provides therefore high wearing comfort. It is often enough to produce a really delicate or skeletonized palate. If the disposition is favourable and the rest of the teeth are in good condition in the upper jaw, the full palate can be abandoned. The end result is more beautiful than in the case of other types of partial prosthesis as staples are not visible. This type of prosthesis can be extended further on when further teeth go lost.

Disadvantages

The increased required space for double crowns and plastic facings (for reasons of transparency, it needs to be ticker than the plastic facing of comparable ceramic facing) cause problems in the case of smaller teeth in the frontal area which require certain aesthetic swab. The plastic facing material is eventually by far not as transparent and colour stable as with ceramic facing.

Material

Primer parts and secondary parts should be produced of the same alloy when possible. The alternatives of golden alloy are noble metal free (NNM=not noble metal) alloys. Based on its features golden alloy can be compiled with heightened accuracy, however, costs grow remarkably. A technically more mature solution is the so called Galvanic technique. Here the primer part is mostly made of NNM-alloy or of zirconium dioxide and a secondary part galvanic golden. The so emerging fit is really precise! The high quality of this fit cannot be obtained by traditional methods.

Cost of telescopic prosthesis is the following:

The high cost of telescopic prosthesis arises as a result of the fact that two crowns per teeth need to be produced. If the crowns are made of golden, the cost of the telescopic prosthesis becomes considerably higher. The cost of telescopic prosthesis is subsidized up to 3 telescopic crowns. If there are more than 3 teeth in the jaw this telescopic prosthesis can only be used if the canine/eyeteeth are available and behind them there is a gap of at least two teeth. In this case 2 telescopic crowns are subsidized.

Before the treatment you need an actual (not older than three months old) x-ray. With the help of this we can draw up a non-committal Treatment and Cost Plan for you. Should you already have a Treatment and Cost Plan, please, send it to us and we can draw up a non-committal Treatment and Cost Plan for you.

Should you have any further questions, we are at your disposal. We look forward to your hearing your appointment request, so we can convince you of the high quality our services and win your confidence. We remain in deep respect and hope to see you soon personally.
