Locator - Ideal Overdenture Attachment

The ideal Overdenture Attachment should have all of the following attributes:

  • Easy to maintain and change
  • Inexpensive
  • Low Profile
  • Small Diameter to accommodate narrow ridges
  • Easy, Guided insertion
  • Retentive yet easy to disengage for removal
  • Wear Resistant
  • Resilient

Locator Abutment






Pictured at the left is a locator abutment on a standard external hex implant. Note that the retention for this attachment is both internal and external.

Zaag Locator Retentive Cap



The metal retentive cap which will be picked up in the Overdenture incorporates the plastic retentive element. Because of the design, there is little chance of locking onto the abutment when picking up the attachment.
