Telescopic dentures (Also known as overlay dentures) and bridges can be a viable and much cheaper alternative to dental implants.
A telescopic denture is supported by both soft tissue and natural teeth that have been altered so as to permit the denture to fit over them. The altered teeth may have been fitted with short or long copings, locking devices, or connecting bars.
Some of the benefits of the telescopic denture include the prevention of bone loss, aesthetic appeal, improved speech (when compared with other types of dentures), proper jaw alignment, and improved chewing efficiency. These overdenture systems can last a lifetime and increase chewing power by up to 300.
The Telescopic Bridge
The telescopic bridge or prosthesis is a dual supported( teeth and gums) removable coverage restoration designed to fit over your natural teeth and gum areas in order to replace missing teeth.
