Lecture title: Retention and Wear of Locator Attachments in Implantology
Lecture abstract: Limited information is currently available relative to the various factors affecting retention and wear of Locator attachments. Articles found in the literature cover some aspects of the problem but not all of them. In this lecture, we will present an interesting new theme that seems to have a direct effect on retention and wear; Chewing and masticatory loading. While all researchers pointed out the complexity of the wear process, our study contributes in the understanding of the involved factors and helps in decreasing the maintenance demands of the Locator Attachments.
