Dental Attachments, Precision, Partial Denture, Intracoronal
Definition : Precision partial denture attachments designed to attach the partial denture to receptacles at a point inside the abutment crown contour. These attachments are typically two-component devices that attach to each other with a high degree of precision: one component is fixed within the abutment crown and a second component is an integral part of the partial denture base; they are usually of a dovetailed or a slotted design. Rigid and, less frequently, resilient attachments are available that permit a slight vertical movement, hinging action, or rotational movement as the patient bites.
