A telescopic denture represents a combination of both non-removable and removable ones, since it includes both types in its structure. Telescopic dentures consist of removable denture and non-removable crowns, so called telescopic crowns. These telescopic crowns are divided into two groups, the inner and outer crowns. As the denture is inserted, the inner and outer crowns slip into each other. The friction between inner and outer crowns ensures a secure halt.
Material of a denture
As there are different types of dentures, there are different materials used for these.

Full dentures on a metal plate areÂ from 440, – Usd per jaw available, while it isÂ important to note that if they are supported byÂ implants, the costsÂ increase. Meanwhile, partial dentures that are anchored to existing teeth, cost from 605, – Usd.

Usually, the anchoring of the teeth is ensured by the own dental roots of the patient. However, with the loss of teeth this function is ensured by the implants. This surgery is done by a dentist with local anaesthesia. Different types of dentures will then be anchored to the dental implants in different ways.
