Dental Attachments, Precision, Overlay Partial Denture

Definition : Precision dental attachments designed to attach an overlay partial denture (i.e., overdenture) to receptacles that are connected to or within an abutment such as a natural tooth, abutment crown, dental implant, or tooth-root (radicular or intraradicular) stud. 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. Overdenture precision rigid attachments are available as intra- and extracoronal devices according to the fixation site, while resilient (i.e., nonrigid) precision attachments are usually extracoronal devices. Magnetic-coupled attachments are also available.
