Tin, assures vertical resilience. Mounted on male part during polymerization. Included with complete resilient attachment.
Tin, assures vertical resilience. Mounted between male and female parts during polymerization. Included with complete resilient attachment.
As this attachment is very low, the male part may be positioned without using a parallelometer. The quantity of the solder integrated into the center of the male is sufficient to solder it to the root coping without adding solder.
For bilateral insertion and free-end dentures, cast framework transversal connections such as plates in the upper or sublingual connectors in the lower jaw are used. It is important that these constructions are absolutely rigid. Rigid unilateral dentures must be blocked transversally.
Flatten occlusal surface of cast coping perpendicular (90 degrees) to the path of insertion. Multiple attachments must be set parallel. Use the silicone matrix of the denture setup to verify space for the attachments.

The opening of the female clip must align with the occlusal index on the male attachment. Place the male attachment on the coping with the index pointing up. Mark the position of the index on the coping.
When two root copings are in succession in the posterior region of a quadrant, the combined use of a rigid anchor with a resilient anchor is recommended. Normally the rigid anchor will be placed on the anterior and the resilient attachment on the posterior abutment. To prevent rocking movements and overloads, the two root copings must not be blocked.
Complete denture fabrication as usual.
Place the large tin spacer between the male and female for resilient attachments. Set the female clip on the male, aligning the opening on the female clip with the occlusal index on the male.
All female parts in the same arch must be aligned so that their arms can be opened and closed simultaneously when the denture is inserted or removed from the mouth.
Before polymerizing the females into the denture, it is advisable to fix them into place by applying a small amount of self-curing resin to their perforated retainers.
Block out the center of the male and the retaining arm of the female with a 1 mm coat of cement, wax or Flexistone. The occlusal surface must remain exposed. To ensure that the removable denture is resilient, the tin gingival spacer must be adapted to the root post cap prior to polymerization, placed on the male and the occlusal spacer adhered to the male. Block out the retaining arms.
Once the denture has been released from the master model, all the block out material is removed from the retaining arms to ensure that they are fully mobile when the denture is inserted/removed. The occlusal spacer must also be removed from the denture.
Modifications / relines: When modifying or relining the denture, the appropriate transfer jigs should be placed on the new working model in place of the male parts. When using rigid attachments, the impression can either be taken with the females placed on the males or without the females. When using resilient attachments, the impression must be taken with the female placed on the male.
Please note: The functional section of the resilient transfer jig is not identical with the original male part. This transfer jig is used for positioning the female parts exactly along the vertical axis
