Dental Attachments, Clasp, Partial Denture
Definition : Clasp dental attachments designed to be adapted around and/or rest on and surround natural tooth abutments, which are usually an integral component of a partial denture. These clasps typically have three components: an occlusal rest, a bracing, and a supporting arm; dental clasps are typically metal, flexible castings or wires. Custom-made and preformed partial denture clasps made of synthetic thermoplastic (e.g., polymer) materials are also available but less frequently used.
