A Customized Semi- Precision Bar Attachment for Tooth Supported Overdenture: A Case Report
Various precision attachment systems are available for tooth supported overdenture treatment modality. The objective of all the systems is to provide retention and support for the overdenture. Retention of a mandibular denture can be achieved by natural tooth-retained with bar and stud attachment in anterior region. A simple and cost effective treatment for a more complex implant overdenture is the concept of conventional tooth-retained overdentures. The present clinical report describes a patient treated with customized hader bar with coffee straw in mandibular tooth-borne overdenture.
