Brief Background: This clinical report highlights the use of semi precision attachments in a removable partial denture Materials and Methods: After clinical and radiological examinations tooth preparations were undertaken followed by placement of three Ceka Sagix attachments on the mesial surface of tooth no #11, 16 and 24 Discussion: Preci sagix (Ceka) is sagittal ball attachment with segmented female for partial dentures and implant applications. Indication and contraindications of semi-precision attachment have been discussed. Summary and Conclusions: Conventional cast partial dentures are incompatible in modern dentistry where aesthetics is of paramount importance while the complexity of the direct retainers acts as a food trap, gingival impingement leading to increased chance of dental caries in and around the abutment. The advent of attachment retained partial dentures in dentistry has solved many problems concerned with aesthetics while its increased retention and stability leads to user friendly prosthesis
