A Patient’s Overdenture Journey
Implant & Multi-Unit Attachment System
The LOCATOR Implant Attachment with patented pivoting technology is the premier system for implant-retained overdentures. According to recent studies, a two mplant retained, tissue-supported overdenture restoration is considered the new minimum standard of care for edentulous patients.
More than two implants may also be placed for an implant-retained overdenture.
When a case calls for an overdenture bar, the LOCATOR Bar Attachment provides the same pivoting technology, self-aligning feature, superb retention, and exceptional durability, all in a low-profile design. It also offers three
options for the fabrication of a resilient attachment on an implant-supported cast alloy or milled titanium bar.

ONE SYSTEM, MULTIPLE BENEFITS
The LOCATOR Male pivots in its permanent Denture Cap for a genuine resilient connection of the prosthesis without any resulting loss of retention. The male remains in static contact
with the female socket while the Denture Cap has a full range of rotational movement over the male.
LOWEST VERTICAL HEIGHT
The LOCATOR Attachment is designed to reduce the height of attachment and abutment on all brands of endosseous implants. With a total attachment height of only 3.17mm (male
plus 1mm collar abutment) for an externally hexed implant, the LOCATOR Attachment saves a minimum of 1.68mm to 3.05mm of interocclusal space compared to other implant overdenture
The self-aligning feature of the LOCATOR Attachment allows a patient to easily seat their overdenture without the need for accurate alignment, and without causing damage to the
attachment components. This self-aligning feature also increases the longevity of the LOCATOR. Patients can really bite their
dentures into place without harming the attachments.
The LOCATOR Attachment has twice the amount of retention surface area than other attachments available. The unique Dual Retention innovation that includes inside and outside retention
ensures long-lasting performance, as shown by an independent laboratory test comparing the LOCATOR Attachment to the Stern ERA® Implant Attachment during 60,000 cycles of function.*
