The answers to seven simple questions are all that is needed to identify the appropriate attachment for any removable prosthesis. addresses the procedures needed to create a non-Resilient attachment including the necessary clinical procedures Contained In the sections of this presentation are biomechanical considerations of the partial denture. The course will address the proper use of intra-coronal, extra-coronal, precision, semi-precision, resilient and non-resilient attachments. General concepts and techniques for the use of attachments in removable prosthesis will be presented. The dental attachments discussed are available from multiple sources; the ones used in this presentation are from Sterngold and other distributors.
