The outcome of prosthesis is based on its retention, stability and support. Magnets have been used for past several years in dentistry with numerous applications mainly to assist retention with some success and have created an immense interest in dentistry. Their small size and strong attractive or repulsive properties have gained recognition for magnets in dentistry, as these characteristics allow them to be incorporated in the prosthesis without being detrimental in the mouth. Retentive characteristics of magnets have led to their use in various devices like removable partial dentures, obturators, and also the maxillofacial prosthesis. This article reviews the classification of magnet, design of magnetic attachment, their application, and new magnetic attachment system, followed by the advantage and disadvantage of magnets.
