Frictional Telescopic Crowns in Severely Reduced Dentitions: A 5-Year Clinical Outcome Study

Viola Szentpétery/Christine Lautenschläger/Jürgen M. Setz


PMID: 22545250

Clinical outcomes for frictional telescopic crowns supporting removable prostheses in patients with severely reduced dentitions with one to three remaining teeth per arch have been inadequately documented. Seventy-four patients with severely reduced dentitions received 82 telescopic removable partial dentures that were supported by 173 frictional telescopic crowns. The recorded individual telescopic abutment survival rate over a 60-month period was 80.6%. This observation was significantly influenced by sex and tooth vitality and mobility (Kaplan-Meier). The risk of loss of telescopic crowns was significantly influenced by sex, arch, vitality, and abutment tooth distribution (Cox regression). Telescopic removable partial dentures were proven to be a favorable treatment concept for severely reduced dentitions in the selected group of patients. Int J Prosthodont 2012;25:217–220.
