The original WAPO retention bar is used for total maxillary prosthesis. Characteristic features are the welded-on retentions and plaster anchors on both sides.
The bar is supplied in sizes 6, 7 and 8 cm in anatomically curved form. In soft form, the original WAPO retention bar is tension-free and easily deformable.
Directions for use:
The bar is insurted during the early stages, in the course of waxing up. The plaster hooks fitted to the two inner sides can be bent during mounting to anchor in the plaster. By this method the bar may be fixed in any position required; no distortion
is possible. The denture is finished in the usual manner. Polishing should be carried out with steel grinding paste and steel high gloss polish.
