Abstract:
Factors to be considered when selecting an attachment type Selection of an attachment system that is suitable for a specific clinical situation is sometimes difficult. A good knowledge of the different systems and their mechanical properties, and the way in which they distribute load, is important. For instance, when short implants are used resilient attachments should be applied to ensure a degree of relief on the supporting implants. This allows denture movements to occur and enables the edentulous ridge to absorb the masticatory forces. Consequently, a significant amount of masticatory force is dissipated by the edentulous ridge. Some factors that should be identified and considered in order to obtain the best treatment option with the use of RISOs include the following:
