Removable dentures supported by cast-metal telescopic crowns often exhibit an unpredictable increase or decrease in retentive force after being in clinical use for some time. The objective of the present in vitro study was to develop a new retainer for removable dentures and to evaluate its tribological properties. The new retainer is based on a tapered crown design and consists of a conical all-ceramic abutment crown and a coping made of electroplated gold. It was compared with conventional… CONTINUE READING
