Dental Root Studs, Intraradicular
Definition : Dental root studs designed to be fixed within a tooth root or directly screwed into the root (i.e., intraradicular studs). These studs are used as a component of a two-component dental attachment; the other component is fixed to a partial denture or overlay partial denture (i.e., overdenture) prosthesis base. Intraradicular dental root studs are intended to provide partial denture prostheses with a better distribution of the chewing forces along the axis of the abutment tooth root and to facilitate oral hygiene.
