The Bonwill clamp is used to attach a partial denture to existing teeth. It is a support bracket - by combining two double arm brackets with support to form a bracket - which includes two teeth standing next to each other. It is a modification of the Ney bracket. The bracket is named after its developer William Gibson Arlington Bonwill .

The Bonwill clasp is part of the framework of a model cast prosthesis and is cast from a chrome-cobalt-molybdenum alloy .
