Can you feel the abutment while sleeping?


QuestionDoes the Baha Connect System cause any discomfort in use? Can the abutment put pressure on my head in contact with mattress while I am sleeping? // Wesley

Answer: Hi Wesley,

Most people cannot “feel” the implant or abutment once the implant site and surrounding skin have healed after the surgery.. This usually resolves over time. You may hear some sounds as you rub the implant against a pillow or similar, but there is an abutment cover available to cover it if it bothers you.

Your hearing care professional will be able to provide more information about the expected healing time and possible side effects.
