Magnetic dental attachments cause magnetic resonance image (MRI) degradation. A new magnetic dental attachment that allows removal of magnetic parts to exchange them for nonmagnetic parts was developed and tested. It allows high quality MRI with no change in occlusal vertical dimension. A volunteer test subject with combinations of attachments in place was examined by MRI. The images produced showed no degradation or distortion. Magnetic attachments for overdentures or maxillofacial prostheses… CONTINUE READING
