Telescopic Dentures And Bridges Telescope Crowns Classic and long
For people who have lost a lot of teeth, but whose existing teeth
are in good health,there is an alternative to having implants - the
Telescopic Bridge Denture.
Not everyone wants to undergo surgical procedures, and having
several implants can be prohibitive because of the cost.
The usual alternative is a removable denture, however they may feel
uncomfortable to wear, may move too much while speaking or eating,
or may show the metal clasps when smiling ,so one can feel a little
self conscious when wearing them in public.
The Telescopic Bridge Denture is a cross between a fixed bridge and
a removable denture, and it rests on your existing healthy teeth.
1. It looks like your normal teeth- there are no metal clasps on
2. It behaves as if it was fixed - much like a bridge, i.e. it
doesn't move while you are eating or talking,however, you can
remove it for cleaning, which you cannot do with a bridge.
The ability to remove it for cleaning considerably reduces the risk
of tooth decay , therefore these dentures can last a very long time
if properly maintained.
3. It can be made even if you only have 3 or 4 teeth left - for
example the case below was made on just 4 teeth.
