Crown-Sleeve Coping Prosthesis

About Crown-Sleeve Coping Prosthesis     This procedure is done to replace many missing teeth. It is a removable appliance that is used a lot with periodontal patients (patients that have moderate to severe bone loss). The fantastic upside to the CSC case is that a patient does not need to go to a full denture and they can use the remaining teeth for tremendous stability and retention. The CSC case also is a great alternative to a partial denture, implants, and a full denture. The design of the CSC case is much more kind to the remaining teeth. There are no clasps to torque and stress the teeth.
      The CSC case presents a much more aesthetic result than a removable partial denture that shows clasps. Again, lack of horizontal torque on the remaining teeth is a huge advantage to the prognosis of the remaining teeth. There is a frictional grip between the prosthesis and gold copings that create a very tight, comfortable fit. There is no lateral or vertical movement with these cases, unlike partial dentures or full dentures.
These are actual patients of Dr. Niemoeller.
Case 1

Case 1

This is a very simple case. Three teeth on upper right posterior are my anchor teeth. The prosthesis fits over the gold copings creating an extremely retentive fit and a beautiful smile.
Case 2

Case 2

This type of case is done when a patient does not have a lot of bone strength. It is a great alternative to those who do not want implants!
Case 3

Case 3

This patient had only four remaining teeth on the upper. The fit of this case was excellent, something you would not get out of a full denture.
Case 4

Case 4

This is as dramatic as it gets. None of these teeth were extracted. They were used as anchors for removable upper and lower crown-sleeve coping prosthesis.
Case 5

Case 5

This patient had upper and lower cases done. He lost his front teeth to periodontal disease. The remaining teeth were saved and used as anchors.
Case 6

Case 6

This patient had only three remaining teeth. He did not want a full denture or implants. The final result is a very aesthetic-looking, removable prosthesis.
