Fabrication of custom clips for bar-and-clip attachments for implant-supported overdentures | Academic Article individual record
abstract

Bar-and-clip attachments for dental implants are a common and versatile device for improving the retention and stability of a removable prosthesis. Manufactured clips may be unsubstantial and may not always fit or provide the desired amount of retention for the bar. The purpose of this article is to describe a technique for custom fabrication of clip attachments. The wax pattern of the clips is fabricated and then cast in dental gold alloy. The gold clips are then cut to an appropriate size that will allow for a variety of clinical applications.
