Tooth-supported overdentures provide a comfortable and cost-effective treatment option, further enhanced by precision attachments for improved stability. We present a novel approach using custom ball attachments and readily available orthodontic separators. This method offers several advantages:

  • Cost-effective: Significantly cheaper than prefabricated attachment systems.

  • Easily customizable: Ball attachments can be tailored to individual needs.

  • Durable and comfortable: Ball attachments provide good retention and act as shock absorbers.

  • Simple to use: Separators have pre-set diameters for convenient placement.

This innovative technique presents a compelling alternative for enhancing overdenture retention, particularly for patients seeking a cost-effective and adaptable solution.
