Abstract

A rationale for the use of Twin-Flex clasps is presented. Twin-Flex clasps may provide improved esthetics, an increased number of clasping sites, and enhanced patient comfort when compared with conventional clasping systems. Two fabrication methods are described, and departures from conventional clasping techniques are explained.
