    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    As a result of people keeping their teeth longer, modern dentists are encountering more partially dentate patients and difficult restorative problems. It is possible to solve some of the problems caused by the unusual angulations and undercutting when the remaining teeth of partially dentate patients start to drift by using the hinge clasp. The authors describe the types of device available and outline the advantages (and disadvantages) of its use.
