Implant Supported Overdentures
The enticing aroma of a thick, juicy steak was a temptation Marvin Goodwin often avoided because his dentures made the meat difficult to chew. Now that he’s had implants placed to support his denture, he is no longer cautious of the foods he eats.


In a study published in the Journal of Periodontology, researchers found that the cumulative survival rate of implant-placed overdentures was 95.4 percent for 10 years.The success rate for the maxilla (upper jaw) implant supporting overdentures was 87.3 percent and the mandible (lower jaw) was 99.5 percent. 

An implant-supported overdenture requires that implants are placed into the jaw. The implants bond to the jawbone forming an anchor. Full bridges or dentures are created to attach to the implants, literally locking the teeth replacement into place.

“Even though my partials fit, they were often uncomfortable and had a tendency to move when I talked or ate,” explained Goodwin. “I can now enjoy eating food – especially steak because my teeth do not move.”

“One of the advantages of implant-supported full bridges and dentures is that it replaces some of the tooth roots, which will better preserve the jawbone,” explains Vincent J. Iacono, DMD and president of the American Academy of Periodontology. “Dental implants integrate with the jawbone helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.

Precision attachments
frictional or mechanically retained unit used in fixed or removable prosthodontics, consisting of closely fitting male and female parts, an attachment that may be rigid in function or may incorporate a movablestress control unit to reduce the torque on the abutment.

Telescopic Overdentures
The telescopic crown also known as the German crown was developed in Germany and is even now one of the most used dental procedures by us to construct removable dentures. Note that 99 % of the telescopic dentures worldwide are being made in Germany. 



Increased Chewing Power up to 300 %

Some of the benefits of the telescopic overdentures include the prevention of bone loss, esthetic 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%.



Periodontitis is a dreaded oral disease that causes the gums to recede, loosening teeth, and eventually leading to loss of teeth. Telescopic denture is a old german technique to restore new teeth for the periodontal patients. It consists of a double crown system know as "the telescopic", the procedure involves fitting the remaining natural teeth with  inner metal crowns, followed by outer crowns as part of an over denture that can be removed by the patient. 



This technique ensures that bite stress is distributed evenly between each tooth, protecting the remaining teeth and the end result looks quite natural. This technique is also suitable for cases of missing back molars.

 

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.


The telescopic denture consists of:

  • the primary crowns or caps made of precious or non precious dental alloys that will be cemented on the prepped teeth
  • the secondary crowns (dental alloys) that are slipping over the primary caps and thus maintaining the bridge through sliding friction tight on the teeth. The secondary crowns have facings (surfaces) of acrylic resin with ceramic fillers
  • (the framework made out of non precious dental alloy is embedded in plastic (acrylic resin) and supports the acrylic teeth which will replace the own missing teeth. )
     

The best results are obtained when primary and secondary crowns are made of gold or precious dental alloys. If you would like to save, our specialised partner dental lab can also use non precious alloys for the primary and secondary crowns.
