The Zest LOCATOR Bar Attachment
The LOCATOR Bar Attachment delivers a low attachment profi le and superb retetion with a self-aligning design.
Zest Anchors' LOCATOR Bar Attachment is designed to offer ease of insertion and removal, customizable levels of retention, low vertical profile, and exceptional durability. Its central design feature is its ability to pivot, which increases the resiliency and tolerance for the high mastication forces.
During seating, while the LOCATOR male pivots inside the Denture Cap, the system's self-aligning design centers the male on the attachment before engagement. This allows the LOCATOR to self-align into place. Once seated, the male remains in static contact with the attachment, while the Denture Cap'which is processed into the overdenture'enables a full range of rotational movement over the male for a resilient connection of the prosthesis.
The LOCATOR Bar Attachment offers 3 options for the fabrication of a resilient attachment on an implant-supported cast alloy or milled titanium bar. Dental laboratories have the option of casting the attachment to a gold alloy bar, laser welding to a bar, or using the drill and tap attachment for easy replacement if wearing of the female occurs during the life of the restoration.

Company Spotlight - 4 Decades, 3 Rebirths, 1 Trusted Company

In the late 1940s, Zuest, a dental lab technician and Switzerland native, built a 35-ft motor yacht completely outfitted with a dental operatory and laboratory. He left his Vancouver lab in the care of his associates and cruised up and down the coast of British Columbia with a dentist friend for two years, performing dental services for logging camps and accepting cash payment. ...Read More
