Our Dental Headrests
The Right Dental Headrest Makes All the Difference
Choosing the best headrest for your dental chair is important. Crescent offers three different headrests based on the type of patients you serve and style of dental chair you use in your practice. So, whether your chairs have a flat headrest or a double-articulating headrest, Crescent Products has the dental chair accessories to fit your needs.
Treating maxillary teeth with proper visualization and posture can be challenging and can lead to back, neck and shoulder pain. Developed in collaboration with Dental Ergonomics Expert, Bethany Valachi, PT, MS, CEAS, Crescent Products’ Low-Profile Headrest is our most popular model. The Low-Profile Headrest works equally well with flat headrest dental chairs, but was specifically designed for double-articulating headrest chairs to improve patient comfort, and allow for better ergonomic positioning, improved posture, and increased career longevity for dentists and hygienists.

- Adults | Petite Adults | Children | Seniors
We recommend the Original Headrest for adult patients in dental chairs with a flat headrest. This headrest has proven to be comfortable for patients and ergonomic for dentists. It simulates the positioning of an articulating headrest to prevent strain for dentists and hygienists and provides maximum neck support for the patient.
- Flat Headrest Chair
The Geriatric Headrest is best used with a flat headrest dental chair. Designed for older patients who have difficulty reclining their heads, this headrest also simulates the positioning of an articulating headrest but offers an additional 2 inches of support.

Maximum Comfort + Precise Ergonomics
The orientation of the occlusal plane when treating the upper arch can make or break your posture and your career! The more the occlusal plane of the upper arch gets in front of the vertical plane, the more it pulls the operator into a forward, hunched posture. I realized that most dental professionals do not position patients correctly in the double- articulating headrest due to fear of their patient’s discomfort. That’s why this new Low-Profile Headrest is so important. Patients find them extremely comfortable, which enables them to tolerate extended positions during upper arch treatment. This directly translates to better posture and comfort for the operator
