New LOCATOR R-Tx Abutment for LOCATOR Overdenture Implants Designed for Durability and Flexibility

Article

Zest Dental Solutions’ next generation abutments bring clinicians a 2-piece, all-inclusive solution for delivering positive outcomes to a myriad of edentulous and partially edentulous patients.

New LOCATOR R-Tx Abutment for LOCATOR Overdenture Implants Designed for Durability and Flexibility

Zest Dental Solutions has announced the availability of its next generation of LOCATOR abutments, the LOCATOR R-Tx abutments, designed to deliver enhanced durability as well as exceptional ease-of-use and flexibility for its cost effective and versatile LOCATOR Overdenture Implants.

The company now offers the LOCATOR Overdenture Implant in 2.4, 2.9, 3.5, 3.9, 4.4, and 4.9 mm sizes, which allows clinicians to treat both narrow and standard ridge cases. This versatility expands clinicians’ patient universe and provides an opportunity for practice growth. By pairing LOCATORimplants with R-Tx abutments, clinicians now have a 2-piece, all-inclusive solution for delivering positive outcomes to a myriad of edentulous and partially edentulous patients.

LOCATOR R-Tx provides a 30% increase in strength, 25% greater wear resistance, and a 65% reduction in surface roughness due its resilient DuraTec® coating, according to Zest. This technology allows the abutment to last longer, which equates to cost and timing savings in maintenance for both patient and clinician.

LOCATOR R-Tx provides a 30% increase in strength, 25% greater wear resistance, and a 65% reduction in surface roughness due to its resilient DuraTec® coating, according to Zest.

“It was only a matter of time until we made LOCATOR R-Tx compatible with the LOCATOR Overdenture Implant family,” says Tom Stratton, Zest Dental Solutions CEO. “Together, they create the next generation of cost-effective, high-quality, 2-piece implant solutions that make it easier than ever for clinicians to give patients their smiles back and improve their quality of life.”

In addition, LOCATOR R-Tx offers an impressive 60° of total implant divergence. This exceptional angulation along with dual retentive design make seating the overdenture easier than ever. In cases where less movement is desired, Zest offers Limited Range Inserts for LOCATOR R-Tx that reduce the total implant divergence to 10° for a tighter, more secure fit. The dual engaging geometry on the R-Tx abutment offers a narrower leading edge and taper-like effect to allow the patient to more easily align and seat the overdenture.

“The ability to now use LOCATOR R-Tx with Zest’s LOCATOR Overdenture Implants is a game-changer,” says Zest Dental Solutions Chief Clinical Officer, Michael Scherer, DMD, MS. “Since LOCATOR R-Tx abutments accommodate up to 60° it allows me to use LOCATOR implants in more challenging ridge situations. I’ve also noticed the new DuraTec coating on the R-Tx abutments helps to reduce plaque accumulation and maintenance over time.”

LOCATOR R-Tx abutments for LOCATOR Overdenture Implants are available in a variety of cuff heights, and come in convenient, all-in-one packaging which contains abutment, and processing components to be paired with any LOCATOR Implant.
