Fixed bridges and implants are often used to replace missing teeth; telescopic overdenture may be considered as another option for combining good retentive and stabilizing properties with a splinting action. The telescopic denture is a removable prosthesis that is supported by the retained teeth and the residual ridge or mucosa. It is a versatile and successful means of achieving long-term restoration of a partially edentulous jaw.
