The mandibular labial bar major connector.

Author information

The lower labial bar is rarely indicated as a major connector for a removable partial denture. It can be used satisfactorily when large mandibular tori interfere with conventional lingual bar placement or when the lower teeth are severely lingually tipped and placement of a lingual bar is not possible.
