The new LOCATOR Bar Attachment System contains the same self-aligning feature, superb retention, long lasting durability, and low attachment profile that you currently enjoy with our top selling LOCATOR Attachments. Now these benefits are available for your immediate use when the splinting of implants is required with a bar for added stability.
LOCATOR Bar Attachment Options
You have three (3) LOCATOR Attachment choices:
Drill & Tap
For total retrievability you can simply drill, tap, and thread the new LOCATOR Bar Female into your completed implant bar. The 1.7mm Bar Drill and a 2.0mm Bar Tap are used for creating the threaded site into either a titanium bar or cast alloy bar. The LOCATOR Gold-Plated Abutment Driver included as part of the 3 piece LOCATOR Core Tool is designed to engagethe inside diameter of the threaded LOCATOR Bar Female and thread it into place. Atorque wrench may also be used to achieve the minimum recommended 20Ncm of torque tightening.
