With LOCATOR R-Tx, clinicians reportedly will quickly realize practical benefits such as: 

  • A novel, new to dentistry DuraTec™ titanium carbon nitride coating that is esthetic, harder and more wear-resistant.

  • An industry standard .050"/1.25mm* hex drive mechanism. No special drivers are required.

  • Dual retentive features on the abutment and nylon retention insert that work in harmony with the redesigned denture attachment housing to allow for a 50 percent increase in pivoting capability (60° between implants) and provide easier alignment and overdenture seating during insertion/removal for the patient.

  • The redesigned denture attachment housing also incorporates flats and grooves that resist movement and is anodized pink for aesthetics.

  • Convenient All-in-One Packaging: double-ended vial separately holds abutment and processing components providing all the necessary components for the case with one part number. 

“Clinicians, implant manufacturers and patients alike have come to trust the original LOCATOR Attachment System and helped propel it to market leading status," Steve Schiess, CEO of ZEST Anchors, said. "We’ve listened to inputs from the implant community over the years and applied pragmatic improvements to this next generation design. We’re confident the user experience with LOCATOR R-Tx will be incrementally rewarding.”
