Implant Lineup Expands to Include Range of Diameters

Dentistry Today


Zest Dental Solutions has expanded its line of Locator Overdenture Implants to include a range of implant diameters, including 2.4, 2.9, 3.5, 3.9, 4.4., and 4.9 mm, according to the company. This expansion is available as part of a single-implant site packaged solution that includes Locator implants, abutments, and accompanying components for overdentures.

“For years, industry and clinical partners have been asking us to expand our current line of implants to go with our Locator implant abutment systems, so exploring our options made sense,” said Tom Stratton, CEO of Zest Dental Solutions.

“Working in conjunction with our existing manufacturing capabilities, which are located here in San Diego, California, we are releasing an expanding line of Locator implants. They are manufactured to the same exacting standards as the Locator products clinicians already rely upon,” Stratton said.

“Best of all, they are available at a price that allows clinicians to provide overdenture treatment to a segment of the population that might have been previously priced out of the market,” he said.

The new Locator Overdenture Implants are designed to meet the needs of today’s rapidly evolving overdenture marketplace, the company said, and the different diameters enable clinicians to treat cases with both standard and narrow ridges.

The implants feature a progressive diameter shape, self-tapping tip, and RBM treated surface to provide strength and stability in a variety of anatomical environments, Zest Dental Solutions said. The bundling of components eliminates the overlap that can occur between case planning and inventory management so clinicians can focus on the individual case, the company added.

“We are going through most of the same distribution channels as our existing Locator products, making it easy for existing users to try them. Clinicians can expect the same consistent, high-quality, Locator experience they’ve come to expect from all products that carry the Locator name,” said Stratton. 

Locator implants will be available through participating Zest Dental Solutions industry partners or directly to the clinician at
