  4. 4. Introduction    Precision attachments offer considerable advantages in dentistry because of their flexibility. Nevertheless they have in the past been largely ignored by most dental professionals for understandable reasons. Precision attachments consist of two halves, a matrix and a patrix, that form a precise but separable joint. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  5. 5. Precision attachments are defined as ; A retainer used in fixed and removable prosthesis construction consisting of a metal receptacle and a closely fitting part. The former is usually contained within the normal or expanded contours of the crown and the later is attached to the pontic or denture framework.  www.indiandentalacademy.com

  7. 7. Synonyms Internal attachments  key and key-way attachments  parallel attachments  slotted attachment Male attachment female attachment -patrix -matrix -flange -slot -insert, fitting part -receptacle -key -keyway, crypt  www.indiandentalacademy.com
  8. 8. History     Prior to 1888, both winder and parr invented devices which were clearly attachments in principles and construction. In 1906 Dr. Herman E.S. Chayes invented a detachable suspender device which formed the fundamental feature of his dental attachment. In 1912 he designed the Chayes attachment called bucco-lingual attachment which forms the basic pattern for the modern frictional grip attachment. 1951 Mc collum made the greatest progress in the development of precision attachment. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  9. 9. Uses     They are used to overcome alignment problems where abutments have differing paths of withdrawal. As connecters in fixed partial denture construction. To retain removable partial dentures. To retain overdentures. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  10. 10. Goals    To provide an efficient masticatory replacement of lost dental organs. To relate the designed platform to the available tooth support. To allow normal anatomic forms to the abutment teeth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  11. 11.     Should be removable and replaceable without stress and strain on the abutment teeth. Should be capable of being tissue supported in a controlled manner. Should allow for various Occlusal patterns. Should provide many years of comfortable service. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  12. 12.    To have minimum amount of tooth structure removed. To place minimum amount of strain on abutment teeth. To be esthetically acceptable. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  13. 13. Mode of action of precision attachments      Friction Binding Wedging of conical bodies Internal spring loading Active retention www.indiandentalacademy.com
  14. 14. Friction:    It occurs when parallel walls of closely fitting bodies pass over one another. The frictional force is directly related to the area of the opposing surfaces as well as to the length of axial walls. The shape of the passage also plays a substantial role. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  15. 15.  The holding ability of the frictional attachments can be enhanced by addition of active retention elements .  They are spring loaded bolts or plungers. Ring springs Leaf springs Bolts Rubber devices. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  16. 16. Binding:  It occurs when a parallel walled body tips with in the receptor site.  Eccentric loads or frictional elements produce tipping movement,which enhances trans additional binding effect significantly increases resistance to withdrawal. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  17. 17. Wedging of conical bodies:  Friction comes to play only in the terminal position and is lost as soon as the bodies began to separate. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  18. 18. Internal spring loading    This is produced by a clip with in a cylinder. The friction with in retainers is often increased by loading with internal spring clips. Slots in the male portion allows the pressure to be adjusted. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  19. 19. Active retention:    That is when one body must be temporarily deformed to be withdrawn from its fully seated position. Active retention means a physical obstruction to separation of other parts. One part must undergo elastic deformation before separation can occur. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  20. 20. Indications Depending on what the attachment is designed to accomplish.  Primary indication is for clasp elimination when esthetics is of prime importance.  For patients with reduced periodontal support.  In patients where cross arch stabilization is desired. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  21. 21.  The attachment is indicated in combination with fixed and removable prostheses.  The attachment is indicated where removable partial denture design require stress equalization which is of paramount importance.  Long span edentulous areas.  To stabilize unilateral saddles. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  22. 22. Contraindications     Poor mental attitude of the patient is a definite contraindication. Poor oral hygiene. One of the primary contraindications for these prosthesis is space, whether it be vertical, bucco-lingual, mesio-distal, circumferential, or interproximal. In healthy mouths not requiring restoration for other reasons. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  23. 23. Advantages     The principal advantage of attachments for removable partial denture is esthetics. Retention is an advantage for overdentures abutments. Stress distribution. Cross arch stabilization. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  24. 24. Disadvantages       The cost of the service is major factor. Attachments are expensive. Additional post-insertion care is required. Additional chair and laboratory time is needed. Greater experience and knowledge on the part of the dentist and laboratory technician are essential. Require repair and replacement. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  54. 54. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  55. 55. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  56. 56. Auxiliary Attachments This group of attachments covers a wide range of applications.  They serve these situations ; a.] Allows planning which will enable the clinician to remove the prostheses for repair or conversion. b.] Overcome alignment problems which arise when abutments converge, making it impossible to prepare them so that they can be mutually withdrawn when constructing fixed partial dentures.  www.indiandentalacademy.com
  57. 57. c.] Replace the loss of soft tissue in anterior fixed partial dentures. Supplements retention on bars and telescopic crowns. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  59. 59. Screw and Tube Attachments:  Applications : To overcome minor and major withdrawal problems where abutments cannot be paralleled and to provide contingency planning for long span fixed partial dentures and full arch restorations when used in conjunction with inner thimble crowns. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  60. 60. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  61. 61. Materials used in attachment fabrication     Platinum Iridoplatinum Gold and platinum Gold and palladium www.indiandentalacademy.com
  62. 62. Treatment planning     Essential information which must be obtained for an adequate treatment plan includes: Medical and dental history Discussion of patient expectations Extra oral examination. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  63. 63.      Intraoral examination Periodontal survey Occlusal analysis Radiographs Study models www.indiandentalacademy.com
  64. 64. Medical and dental history    It is important to know significant previous history. If the patient has already undertaken restorative work of a complex nature that has failed, then the reasons for such failure must be examined. The ability of the patient to withstand long clinical procedures should be assessed at this early stage. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  65. 65. Discussion of patient expectations   Patient should be encouraged to comment on the appearance of their existing teeth, and to discuss their desires for the new ones. These are always the most difficult to satisfy and careful counselling may be necessary to achieve an acceptable compromise. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  66. 66. Extra oral examination   An appraisal can be made almost before the patient is seated in the dental chair. Any asymmetry should be noted. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  67. 67. Intraoral examination   This must include a meticulous examination of all soft tissues, shape of the ridges, and the amount of bone loss. Where gross bone loss precludes the use of conventional fixed partial dentures, precision attachments can often overcome the problem. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  68. 68.    The teeth should be examined for caries, the extent of restorations, colour, vitality, angulations, mobi lity and bony support, tenderness. Consideration should be given to increase the length of crown sufficient for the provision of a fixed partial denture or precision attachment. A full periodontal survey should be carried out. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  69. 69. Occlusal analysis The basic principles of occlusion should be applied to the analysis of each case. These are ,  There should be a stable co-ordinated occlusal contact of the maximum number of teeth in centric relation.  Forces ideally be in line with the long axis of each teeth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  70. 70.   There should be no non working incline contacts. There must be a balance of anterior and posterior inclines. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  71. 71. Radiographs  Radiographs are essential for assessing the suitability of teeth and their supporting structures for abutments and the retainer of precision attachments. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  72. 72. The free-end saddle     These are classified in to Bilateral free-end saddle And unilateral free-end saddle Extracoranal attachments are preferred against intracoronal attachments. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  91. 91. The bounded saddle    Bounded saddles can arise in either the anterior or posterior part of the mouth. They can be found in combination with freeend saddles or with bounded saddles on the same arch. These are easier to treat than free-end saddles. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  92. 92. Anterior bounded saddles     Problems which might arise in this situation and complicate the provision of conventional fixed partial dentures could be due to: Bone loss Unit spacing Lack of parallelism of abutment teeth and preparation. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  93. 93. Bone loss   Where bone loss has been only slight and a gum fitted fixed partial denture is acceptable in appearance, no problem arises. Small deficiencies can be corrected by adding pink porcelain between the pontics. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  111. 111. Bar attachments      Spaced teeth which are splinted by a bar are mutually supportive. Burnout resin patterns are available and custom-made bars can be milled in the laboratory. There are two types of bar—round and egg shaped. One advantage of round bar is that it can be bent in all directions. The egg shaped bar has extra rigidity making binding more difficult. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  157. 157. The use of precision attachments with implants  Use of precision attachments , in conjunction with the Esthetic cone abutment and the SteriOss PME abutment, to overcome alignment problems between implants and teeth. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  158. 158. EsthetiCone abutments   The estheticone abutment has an overall height of 6.7mm and the abutment collars are either 1, 2 or 3mm in height so that marginal placement can be varied to give the best esthetic results. The interocclusal space must be sufficient to accommodate the height of the abutment as well as the superstructure, otherwise it cannot be used. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  159. 159. Case-1 www.indiandentalacademy.com
  160. 160. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  161. 161. Short cantilever fixed partial dentures and overdentures:   If short implants are placed in the anterior part of the mandible in a very shallow curvature, it is unwise to cantilever more than a single unit distally as stresses would be transferred to the screw and fixtures. The design in the following case allows for a complete restoration of the mandibular arch. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  162. 162. Case www.indiandentalacademy.com
  163. 163. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  164. 164. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  165. 165. PME abutments   The PME abutments comes in the lengths of 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6mm. It is made of titanium alloy and is capable of as much as 40 misalignment correction between implants. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  166. 166. Applications are: 1.Fixed-removable full arch reconstructions on six or more attachments. 2.Overdentures supported on implants attached to bar on four to six implants. 3.Tissue supported overdentures attached to a bar on two implants. 4.Fixed-removable partial denture on two or more implants. 5.Fixed-removable partial denture attached to natural teeth with precision attachment. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  172. 172. Interlocks    Interlocks are extremely useful in restorative dentistry as they allow a degree of both splinting and retrievability. They are also relatively inexpensive. It is necessary to consider the extent and direction of the added force, the length and diameter of the implant, the quality of the bone and the angulation of the implants in that bone. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  173. 173. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  174. 174. Conclusion   The success of prostheses depends on careful treatment planning and attention to the Prosthodontic problems. Careful use of precision attachments with emphasis on advantages, disadvantages, indications, contraindicati ons and mode of action is important for the success of treatment. The dental surgeon who familiarizes himself with precision attachments will add new dimension to his treatment options. www.indiandentalacademy.com
