MetadataShow full item record
Precision and semi-precision attachments have been utilized in fixed partial prostheses for many years. A review of the dental literature reveals a lack of clinical and laboratory information and their use in specific situations therefore must have been empiricly established . The purpose of this research was to contribute to the establishment of either a sound rationale for the use of precision attachments or, conversely, to an indictment of them based on factual testing under simulated clinical conditions.
