TESTIMONIALS

"I have been using LOCATOR Attachments to treat my overdenture patients for many years with great success. The LOCATOR Overdenture Implant System is a great addition for those patients who have narrow ridges and are not in favor of additional surgeries or who have limited finances. I am thrilled to have an overdenture implant from a company I trust in my armamentarium"

- Paresh Patel, DDSNorth Carolina, USA

"I've always liked LOCATOR Attachments over ball attachments. The new LODI System offers us a good alternative to o-ball attachments when the use of a narrow diameter implant is desired. I also like the LODI surgical kit. It has nifty snap-on Drill Stops and a Torque Wrench that tops out at 70Ncm, which assists in determining the level of primary stability. "

- Steven H. Pratt, DDS, FAGD, FAAID

"I originally tried the LOCATOR Overdenture Implant System because I did not have enough vertical room with the system I have been using. The ZEST Implant was perfect for these situations. I am sure I will continue to use this implant system."

- Joseph A. DeLapa, D.D.S.

"The LOCATOR Overdenture Implant is not a typical small diameter implant. It is a narrow body implant with a thread design like standard implants and it provides all of the attachment benefits I have come to appreciate from using LOCATOR. LODI is now my go to implant for patients with narrow bone width and limited finances. I am very pleased with the treatment outcomes and so are my patients."

- David A. Little, DDS

Narrow Implants that build your practice
New Implant Designed for Overdentures Until now, choosing a narrow diameter implant often meant a sacrifice in attachment performance and ultimately patient satisfaction. In order to provide patients with the quality of care that they desire, an increasing number of clinicians are now recognizing the unique benefits of using the next generation of narrow diameter implants for retaining overdentures.

The LOCATOR Overdenture Implant System (LODI) comes complete with the world’s leading overdenture attachment. LODI has answered clinician requests and patient demands for a less invasive, predictable and cost conscious technique for securing dentures.

The LODI system now allows you to treat patients with the minimum standard of care of an implant supported overdenture,* at a reduced cost and with greater satisfaction.

Narrow Diameter Implant Illustration

The LOCATOR Attachment’s dramatically reduced vertical height provides patient comfort when the denture is removed, as well as increased denture strength as compared to O-Ball attachments


Aggressive thread design that widens at the coronal portion providing primary stability when immediate loading may be indicated

Proven RBM roughened surface on entire length of the implant

Self-tapping design for ease of implant insertion and increased implant stability

The LOCATOR Male self-aligns and pivots inside the denture cap providing a genuine resilient connection that holds-up to patient mastication forces while providing attachment durability

LOCATOR Attachment is available in 2.5 and 4mm cuff heights for implant placement flexibility, attachment interchangeability and replacement should wear occur throughout time

Available in 2.4 and 2.9mm diameters and 10, 12 or 14mm lengths for placement in all ridges

Narrow Implant System Features

Each implant is packaged with your choice of a 2.4mm or 2.9mm LODI implant, LOCATOR Abutment, Denture Cap, and LOCATOR Males with 3 different retention levels.

The alternative to O-Ball Mini Implants

LODI is an ideal treatment alternative for the many patients with severe resorption, resulting in very narrow ridges for implant placement. These edentulous patients who are faced with the choice of bone grafting may decline treatment due to additional surgeries or financial reasons. LOCATOR Overdenture Implants may be placed using a minimally invasive, flapless procedure with intuitive instrumentation. The implants are made from strong Titanium alloy and are designed to provide primary stability when immediate loading is indicated.

The LOCATOR Attachment’s dramatically reduced vertical height provides patient comfort when the denture is removed, as well as increased denture strength as compared to O-Ball Mini Implants.

O-Ball Mini versus LOCATOR Overdenture Implant chart

Easy to insert and remove by your patients, the ZEST Anchors LOCATOR Overdenture Attachment differentiating feature is the patented pivoting technology. Its innovative ability to pivot increases the attachment’s resiliency and tolerance for the high mastication forces an attachment must withstand. This streamlined performance leads to fewer problems, increased productivity and long-term patient satisfaction.

Benefits of Narrow Diameter Implants
Award Winning Patented Pivoting Technology

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. This pivoting action accommodates for the natural movements during occlusion, providing greater resiliency and prevents dislodgement.

When compared to attachments that don’t pivot and the overdenture is locked in a static hold, as a patient is chewing, the attachment can easily disengage because of the opposing forces of occlusion. LODI patients are able to enjoy a normal, comfortable chewing function with an unparalleled confidence in the secure fit of their overdenture.

Various Retention Force and Draw Correction Options

The LOCATOR Males and Extended Range Males offer multiple retention levels, 0-5lbs., allowing you to select the ideal retention and accommodate for draw correction of divergent implants based on the number of implants placed and typical patient masticatory function. By contrast, the typical O-Ball one-piece mini implant has only one level of retention and doesn’t allow for draw correction of divergent implants. This limits your treatment abilities, possibly compromising denture fit and function.

LOCATOR Males and Extended Range Males
Safe Instrumentation with a simple dental procedure

All of the LOCATOR® Overdenture Implant System osteotomy preparation instruments include easily identifiable laser etched depth markings for clear visibility when drilling and placing implants. A drill stop set is also included for an additional level of depth control. These features provide you with simplicity and security during osteotomy preparation, especially when using a flapless technique.
