Many studies have emphasized the large impact forces acting on an endosseous implant and supporting bone when a rigid prosthesis design is used. A resilient keeper designed to provide a limited universal motion between a magnet- or screw-retained dental implant prosthesis and its supporting fixtures is described. Additionally, a new magnet housing that limits lateral magnet movement is presented.
