Influence of inter-implant distance and type of attachment on the retention of mandibular overdentures on 2 implants. Initial and 6-month fatigue retention values

This in vitro study evaluated the 6-month fatigue retention provided by 5 paired overdenture attachments placed at 3 different interimplant distances (19, 23, and 29 mm). Mean fatigue retention was calculated for each attachment type and compared with the retention produced by the other attachments tested and the initial retention values published earlier. Interimplant distance was found to play a significant role only in the retention of the Hader bar with red and yellow clips. A significant reduction in retention values was observed for 4 of 5 attachment types.
