Telescopic Restoration Technique

Posted on by Bicon

The telescopic or sleeve overdenture restoration is an excellent alternative to extensive cortical bone grafting, that is often necessary for the treatment of atrophic alveolar ridges. Although it is a removable prosthesis, the patient perceives that the overdenture has the stability of a fixed prosthesis. Three implants placed bilaterally is the ideal support for this prosthesis. Straight and angled solid core Bicon abutments with 360° of universal positioning not only facilitate the fabrication but also enhance the possibility for exceptional aesthetics with the telescopic restoration because the abutment itself can act as the primary crown. Although the positioning of the abutments in the following clinical case is not typical of a telescopic restoration, the depicted techniques are demonstrative.
