Dental Attachments, Semiprecision, Partial Denture, Extracoronal
Definition : Semiprecision partial denture attachments designed to attach the partial denture to receptacles that are externally connected to the crown contour. These attachments are typically two-component devices that attach to each other with a lesser degree of precision than precision attachments: one component is fixed externally to the abutment tooth and a second component is an integral part of the partial denture base. Rigid and resilient attachments are available that permit a slight vertical, hinging, and/or rotational movement as the patient bites.
