In some periodontal cases, biomechanical, esthetic, medical, or economic concerns make it difficult for clinicians to employ either traditional therapy or restoration with an implant-supported prosthesis. To avoid any compromise and ensure a good result in such cases, we chose a removable telescopic prosthesis on natural teeth. In this paper we present a new clinical and technical method for the telescopic prosthesis, and we show that this is a predictable, reliable solution that is easy to realize, inexpensive, and comfortable for patients.
