Abstract

Retention of prosthesis is one of the key factors in the success of the prosthesis. Apart from retention, one of the major concerns in removable partial dentures has been stress transfer on the remaining tissue; particularly in distal extension cases. The use of attachment gained momentum in around late 1950s after considerable efforts by Steiger and Boilet. The need for extra retention and improved esthetics, lead to the development of intra-coronal and extra-coronal attachments. Attachment is a mechanical device for fixation, retention, and stabilization of prosthesis. The criteria that help in the selection of the attachments are location, function, retention, space and cost factors. The article presents a case report on attachment in cast partial denture.

Keywords: Retention; Stress Breaker; Cast Partial Denture; Attachment
