Telescopic attachment retained prosthesis

Removable implant-supported dental prostheses with telescopic attachments

Just getting this blog going.  Telescope is defined here

Great DT post here

Deutsch or Olaf

Syncope is similar. Not true telescope but similar and is removable by patient.

Locator F-Tx is removable by dentist only.  Has plastic attachments that “break” when inserting so can not take in and out.  Once removed, plastic inserts are replaced.

What are the ADA dental codes for a telescopic removable appliance?

Depends on implants, teeth, or teeth and implants. The dental code for coping is D2975

Research on telescope implant supported dental prosthesis

Survival rate at 3 years the same as implant-supported dental prosthesis but complications higher Rehmann JOMI 2015

Immediately loaded in this study but hard to get implants perfectly parallel. They use some sort of guide but I would think still tough.  Without that then likely would need to let heal for conventional about of time.  Would work well I believe, if can find lab that is confident with technique.

If try case like this check out references 9-10-11

Old school

Irving Yalisove has a textbook on telescopic prosthesis but this was before the popularity of implants.
