THE NEXT GENERATION OF THE WORLD'S LEADING OVERDENTURE ATTACHMENT SYSTEM.

Unveiling LOCATOR R-Tx, a better, simpler, and stronger system that relies on the same restorative techniques as the award-winning LOCATOR.

ZEST Anchors proudly claim a 40-year heritage of overdenture attachment innovation.

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 attachments. Trusted by the industry, the clinician community, and patients alike.

 

EVOLUTIONARY DESIGN WITH PRACTICAL BENEFITS

DuraTec Titanium Carbon Nitride Coating is aesthetic, harder, and more wear resistant.



Dual retentive surfaces for engagement & narrower coronal geometry for easier seating of the overdenture.


Convenient all-in-one packaging.


Industry standard .050"/1.25mm* hex drive mechanism.



50% increase in pivoting capability to 60 between implants.


Enhanced geometry to resist movement & anodized pink for improved aesthetics.


 INTRODUCING DuraTec:

 The new shade of strength and LOCATOR innovation.

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, it's over 30% harder, has more than 25% greater wear resistance, and possesses a nearly 65% reduction in surface roughness than ZESTs already industry-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 thats not available in any other Abutment on the market today.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND DURATEC

DuraTec Titanium Carbon Nitride Coating is aesthetic, harder, and more wear resistant.

THE NEW DRIVE MECHANISM

Industry standard .050/1.25mm* hex drive mechanism simplifies placement. Smaller center cavity reduces area for food and plaque accumulation

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 over the seated LOCATOR R-Tx Nylon Retention Inserts to treat a maximum of 60 convergence/divergence between implants, eliminating the need for pre-angled abutments.

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 seat the overdenture.



PRACTICAL DENTURE ATTACHMENT 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 acrylic.

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 of overdenture.

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 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 Handle allows the clinician to disengage a Retention Insert without the risk of tearing gloves.

 


Feature/Attribute


 

Coating

DuraTec Titanium Carbon Nitride. Aesthetic pink gingiva color is harder & more wear-resistant.



Titanium Nitride (gold colored).

Drive Mechanism



Standard .050"/1.25mm* hex drive.

Dedicated Core Tool.

Patient Seating

Coronal Abutment dimension narrower to improve patient alignment & seating.

Coronal portion of the Abutment is wider & more challenging for the patient to orient the seating position.



Attachment Engagement

Always dual engagement using single set of Retention Inserts.

Dual engagement with Standard Males, single with Extended Range Males.



Angle Correction/Pivot Function

Maximum 30 per implant.

 

Maximum 20 per implant with Extended Range Inserts, 10 with Standard Inserts



Denture Attachment Housing

Anodized titanium (pink) for aesthetics; grooves & flats resist vertical and rotational movement; enhanced pivot function.



Titanium with horizontal grooves to resist vertical movement.

Retention Inserts

Only one set of Inserts; simplified retention levels (zero, low, medium, high); improved design to resist edge deformation.

 

Standard and Extended Range Nylon Male Inserts; retention level in pounds.

Packaging

Custom all-in-one, double-ended vial packaging.

 

Components sold in separate packages.
