Abstract

A telescopic denture is a prosthesis which consists of two copings, one is a primary coping which is cemented to the abutments and a secondary coping which is attached to the prosthesis and it fits on the primary coping to increase the retention and stability of the prosthesis. For the patients with the badly broken teeth and without the ability of financial support telescopic denture is considered to be better option. The following case report is on telescopic hybrid prosthesis for maxillary arch. This case report describes the management of periodontally compromised teeth with removable hybrid prosthesis retained by telescopic crowns. This kind of prosthesis acts as a periodontal prosthesis and provides splinting action on the remaining teeth by equally distributing the occlusalforces. It thereby help in retaining the teeth longer.
