Just two implants in combination with a digitally designed and milled hader bar can make be the cost efficient and maintenance difference for dental patients. Rather than five or six implants, the hader bar uses a minimum of two to reestablish peri-oral musculature without compromising material quality and fit. Patient comfort is also enhanced as low vs maximum friction along with other retentive forces can be adjusted based on preferences and abilities.
In addition to the structural integrity of a hader bar, the mechanism allows patients to easily maintain dentures and the entire system without hygiene recall appointments. Wearers’ autonomy in being able to remove dentures when needed allows for increased ownership in cleaning dentures, and this increase in self efficacy helps support healthy oral behaviors.
