This technique affords a simplified alternative to more complicated and expensive treatment of periodontically compromised teeth. It provides the patient with an extended-term prosthesis attached to a single or multiple retained canine. A disadvantage of this technique is that poor hygiene may result in caries or further periodontal breakdown. The internal liner of the cemented tube/sleeve will accumulate food particles if the patient does not keep the prosthesis in place during all times of food ingestion and does not periodically irrigate the internal tube/sleeve.
