The fine retention of oral and maxillofacial prostheses is a successful base. So applying magnetic attachments to solve the retention of prostheses is an important developing trend of prosthodontics. It is considered the third kind of attachment system afterwards simple attachment and precise attachment because magnetic attachments possess prominent virtue that other mechanical attachments don't have.
