Dental Root Studs, Radicular
Definition : Dental root studs designed to be fixed to a tooth root by either soldering or casting to a root-cap coping or cementing directly to the tooth root (i.e., radicular). 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. Radicular 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.
