Patient satisfaction and masticatory efficiency of single implant-retained mandibular overdentures using the stud and magnetic attachments » sciencedirect.comShare on Facebook | Share on zahnigroups | Share on ALUMNIGROUPS
Clinical outcomes were significantly improved in single implant-retained mandibular overdentures using either the Locator or the Magfit magnetic attachments. There was no difference in masticatory efficiency between the two attachment types.Patient overall satisfaction, comfort, speech, chewing ability, and retention improved significantly after insertion of both types of attachment bodies (p < 0.05). Masticatory efficiencies also increased in both the Locator and the Magfit groups (p < 0.05). There were no statistically significant differences in patient overall satisfaction, comfort, speech, and retention between the two types of attachments (p > 0.05). The Locator attachments performed better in perceived chewing ability than the Magfit (p < 0.05), but there was no statistically significant difference in masticatory efficiency between the two attachment types (p > 005).
