Extracoronal resilient attachments in distal-extension removable partial dentures

Yen-Chen Ku, DDS/Yu-Fu Shen, DDS/Chiu-Po Chan, DDS

Pages: 311-317
PMID: 11203941

Esthetics is often compromised in patients who wear removable partial dentures with metal clasps placed on anterior teeth. Clinical procedures are presented for a new design of a removable partial denture that improves esthetics and function through a new dental attachment. The extracoronal resilient attachment system offers vertical resiliency and universal stress relief for use where a resilient prosthesis is indicated. The removable partial denture retained by these attachments provides esthetics, vertical resiliency, and easy replacement of worn attachments.
