Clasps (Orthodontic Denture)

Clasps (Orthodontic Denture)

Retention or dental clasps are a vital component for removable appliances as these provide most, if not all, the anchorage needed for the appliance to function. Even though dental clasps are common, years of experience are needed to master the skill of bending these. The technician must consider tooth anatomy, tooth position, occlusion interference, appliance design and function among others when bending clasps.
