Ring rests and gold clasps

I use ring rests regularly on posterior teeth which are lone standing. They provide excellent support and stability, allowing the clasp element to work optimally. It is a design I have used for the past 7 years and is based on Scandinavian teachings. I particularly like gold I bars and gingivally approaching clasps? on premolars and canines as they are more flexible and more fatigue-resistant than cobalt chromium allowing deeper engagement of undercuts resulting in improved retention and less visibility.
