The LOCATOR® Overdenture Implant System (LODI) from ZEST Anchors is said to offer a predictable and durable implant retained overdenture for patients requiring an effective, cost-conscious technique for securing their dentures.
Known for its reported efficacy for use with narrow ridges by providing a less invasive and predictable implant, the LODI is a durable and cost effective solution for securing traditional dentures. Other features include a lower vertical height, which makes it ideal for fitting over partials.
Additionally, the LODI features a two-part system that includes an attachment that is placed after the implant, enabling a replacement of the attachment in the case of wear over time. In addition, the system offers an alternative to bone graft for patients and can often result in a pain-free recovery that is available for the patient’s immediate use.
The following video, "Basic Mandibular Overdenture Surgery and Prosthetics using the ZEST LOCATOR Overdenture Implant (LODI) System," demonstrates how to place four 2.9 x 12 mm ZEST LODI implants with the assistance of a laboratory fabricated clear surgical guide and free-hand surgical procedures.
