The SAE swivel latch is used as an interlocking element for the biocompatible denture, with only one type of alloy being used both for the primary bars and the secondary structures.
The swivel latch, together with the tapered cone as a retainer, firmly secures the removable, claspless denture unit. Fitting a swivel latch used to present dental technicians with great technical challenges. But now, thanks to the SAE spark erosion system, it has become a simple technical procedure, making the swivel latch an inexpensive connecting element. Also available in high-gold alloy – solder-free.
