Custom-made resin-bonded attachments supporting a removable partial denture using the spark erosion technique: a case report
Probster / Bachmann / Weber
A removable partial denture supported by resin-bonded precision attachments was constructed for a patient with intra oral symptoms of a cleidocranial dysostosis. Because of the anatomic situation, the youth, and the preprosthetic orthodontic treatment of the patient, a conventional prosthetic solution seemed inappropriate. Custom-made attachments were constructed with the spark erosion technqiue. They were fixed to the abutment teeth with resin-bonded retainers. The combination of the resin-bonding technique with the modern technology of spark erosion thus allowed a conservative approach to the oral rehabilitation of a young patient.
