Telescopic crown on Prettau bridge: better solution?

Last Updated October 26, 2019

I have a patient with a maxillary Prettau bridge that has a telescopic crown in area #7 (right lateral incisor). There is a screw access hole underneath the telescopic crown. The bridge is on 6 Implants and is great in every way except that the telescopic crown, which is cemented with temporary cement, comes off about twice a year and has to be recemented. Needless to say this is frustrating for the patient. Does anyone have a better solution to this which does not require fabrication of a new bridge?
