Dental Attachments, Precision

Definition : Dental attachments fabricated using special metal alloys under precise tolerances (i.e., high-precision attachments), which are designed to attach partial dentures (including overlay partial dentures) to receptacles that are connected to or within an abutment (e.g., tooth, dental implant, abutment crown). These attachments are typically two-component devices that attach to each other with a high degree of precision; one component is fixed to an abutment or may be supported by tissue and a second component is an integral part of the partial denture base. Precision dental attachments may be rigid or have several degrees of resilience according to the torque transmitted to the abutment; they are available as intra- and extracoronal devices according to the fixation site. Precision dental attachments usually distribute chewing forces better and provide better cosmetic results than conventional clasp attachments.
