From innovator to market leader
The principle on which the CEKA attachment is based goes back to the year 1958. In those days, the Belgian dental technician Karel Cluytens patented an elastic spring pin that snaps into a conical female. Both could be incorporated invisibly into the dental prosthesis, thus offering an alternative to the less aesthetic clasp.
Arthur Bax, a prominent dental technician from Antwerp, took over the patent and established the company CEKA in 1964. He perfected the attachment, developed the removable spring pin, and completed it to the current CEKA Attachment System. Under his management, CEKA became an international market leader in the field of spring pin attachments for dental prostheses.
For improved prophylactics and aesthetics, the shape of the extracoronal female was changed in 1984. This resulted in the creation of the extracoronal CEKA REVAX attachment, which can be perfectly adapted to each individual patient situation.
Always flexibly responding to developments in dentistry and prosthetics, the product range is continuously updated. For each innovation, an optimum prosthetic rehabilitation is top priority. That's why patients all over the world not only appreciate the exactly dosed retention and the long life of the CEKA attachments but especially the reassuring "click" when the prosthesis is inserted.
