Before the ERA concept was developed, dental professionals and their patients were experiencing problems with some resilient attachments. They were too expensive, complicated to fabricate, and too fragile or unreliable for long-term patient service. The ERA System alleviates these problems by using new materials and patented designs. ERA attachments comprise a metal female component, which is intraorally fixed. There's also a replaceable, high-density nylon male anchored in the denture base. By eliminating the machining of expensive gold alloy components, ERA attachments are affordable for many more patients. They are easy to use, and fabrication and maintenance procedures have been simplified. Dentists worldwide prescribe them, and technicians fabricate thousands of ERA-retained restorations every month. And patients put them to hard daily use. For more information, call (800) 243-9942 or visit sterngold.com.
