Better. Simpler. Stronger.

Unveiling LOCATOR R-Tx, a better, simpler, and stronger system that relies on the same restorative techniques as the award-winning LOCATOR.Over the past decade and a half, the LOCATOR Attachment System has grown dramatically, evolving into the undisputed market leader for implant-retained, tissue-supported overdenture attachment’s. Trusted by the industry, the clinician community, and patients alike.

In keeping with our innovative spirit, ZEST has continued to refine and even reimagine LOCATOR.

Introducing DuraTec. The New shade of strength and LOCATOR innovation.

THE NEW DRIVE MECHANISM Industry standard .050″/1.25mm* hex drive mechanism simplifies placement. Smaller center cavity reduces area for foods and plaque accumaltion. The LOCATOR R-Strength meets function in the innovative new LOCATOR R-Tx. Composed of multiple layers of titanium carbon nitride and titanium nitride, the patent pending DuraTec Coating provides a harder, more wear resistant abutment exterior. In fact, its over 30% harder, has more than 25% greater wear resistance, and possesses nearly 65% reduction in surface roughness compared to ZEST already leading titanium nitride coating. Increased strength is complemented by an aesthetic gingiva tone, but is distinct enough to provide proper visibility for the patient. It all adds up to a revolutionary combination that’s not available in any other abutment on the market today.

1. EASIER DENTURE SEATING WITH PIVOTING TECHNOLOGY

The magic of LOCATOR has been that the Nylon Retention Insert pivots within the Denture Attachment Housing during insertion/removal, resulting in a resilient system that has allowed patients to seat their overdenture without damaging the components, even in the presence of divergence or convergence between implants.

Patented modifications to the Denture Attachment Housing now allow the Housing to pivot up to 30 degree over the seated LOCATOR R-Tx Nylon Retention Inserts to treat a maximum of 60 degrees convergence/divergence between implants, eliminating the need for pre-angled abutments.

2. NARROWER CORONAL GEOMETRY

The dual engaging geometry of the Abutment offers a narrower leading edge and taper-like effect to allow the patient to more easily align and properly overdenture.

3. PRACTICAL DENTURE ATTACHEMNT HOUSING DESIGN

Horizontal grooves and flats resist vertical and rotational movement, and a channel inside the top of the housing enhances pivot range of motion. New pink anodization improves aesthetics in areas of thin denture acylic.

4. EFFICIENT ABUTMENT/INSERT ENGAGEMENT

The Nylon Retention Inserts now engage dual retentive surfaces on the exterior of the Abutment. No internal engagement prevents debris and plaque accumulation within the drive mechanism from impacting proper seating.

5. NEW RETENTION INSERT DESIGN

Improved design resists edge deformation. Simplicity is also top of mind – the system utilizes only one set of Retention Inserts with straightforward retention values – Zero, Low, Medium, High.

CONVENIENT ALL-IN-ONE PACKAGING

Custom designed all-in-one, double-ended vial separately holds Abutment and Processing Components providing all the necessary components for the case with one part number.

CUSTOM RETENTION INSERT TOOL

Dual-sided tool for easy insertion and removal of the LOCATOR R-Tx Retention Insert. Metal slot feature on the back of the tool allows the clinician to disengage a Retention Insert without the risk of tearing gloves.
