Abstract

Abstract Entirely tooth-supported removable dentures with telescope crowns may be considered a good alternative to a fixed restoration of the whole dental arch. They provide a rigid splinting and stable occlusion and offer a better safety factor owing to their removeability and their lesser dependence on each single abutment. Also they are applicable when parallelism among the abutments does not permit making a fixed restoration. Furthermore they can be cemented in stages, decreasing the risk of washout later. Psychologically, they are well tolerated by patients.
