STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Bar and stud attachments are widely used to stabilize overdentures on implants in the mandible. There is strong evidence that retention of the attachment is an important factor for a patient's satisfaction. PURPOSE This study describes retentive forces and wear of commercially available attachments of 4 implant systems (31, IMZ, Nobel Biocare, ITI Straumann) and 2 magnets (Steco). METHODS Forces while removing the keyway portion of an attachment in its path of insertion… CONTINUE READING
