Attachments are small mechanical devices for fixation, retention and stabilisation of prosthesis. They have wide applications ranging from crown and bridge restorations, partial denture restorations, over denture restorations to implant restorations. They can be precision i.e. prefabricated types or semi-precision i.e. lab or custom-made types. They provide good retention, stability, aesthetics, psychological acceptance and less bulk, but, have been ignored due to notable cost and inadequate knowledge of their application. Semi-precision attachments offer far greater adaptability and versatility to a wide variety of clinical situations compared to precision attachments, and, are hence becoming quite popular. They are also less costly, easy to fabricate and may be directly cast in alloy. This paper discusses cases where semi-precision attachments are used in different clinical situations to add a new dimension to treatment.
