Telescopic Prostheses for Implants

PMID: 9638005

This retrospective study investigated the outcome of 73 telescopic implant-supported fixed prostheses. Fifty-four prostheses were entirely cement-retained, and 19 incorporated a screw-clamping unit. The rate of complications was low and in most cases minor in nature. Cement-retained prostheses involving a distal cantilevered extension required the greatest postoperative maintenance. Despite the small number of combined screw- and cement-retained prostheses, the lack of complications and ease of retrievability make this approach worthy of further study.
