Locator® Abutment components

Utilizing Locator® Abutments

  1. After removal of the Perioseal™ healing cap or the tissue abutment with the .050 hex wrench, insert the Locator® abutment into the Perioseal™ implant using the abutment driver and tighten by hand. The abutment driver is the gold colored portion of the Locator® Core Tool as seen in figure 6. Do not torque.
  2. Place a Locator® Impression Coping onto each Locator® Implant Abutment. Inject a light body, vinyl impression material around each impression coping.
  3. Complete the impression using a firm body impression material. The Locator® Impression Coping is designed with minimum retention to be picked up with the completed impression.
  4. Snap a Locator® Abutment Analog into each impression coping making sure the analog is fully seated. The Locator® Abutment Analog is designed with a precise fit into the Locator® Impression Coping, allowing for an accurate transfer to the working model.
  5. The master cast is poured, incorporating the Perioseal™ abutment analogs. The abutment analog in the master cast replicates the exact position of the Locator® abutment in the patient's mouth, now in the acrylic model.
  6. Send the master cast to the laboratory for processing of the denture. The dental laboratory will process the metal denture caps (housing) into the overdenture.
  7. After receipt of overdenture from the laboratory, remove the black processing liner out of the metal cap in the denture with the male removal tool.
  8. Seat a nylon retention cap (clear, pink or blue) into the metal denture cap with the male seating tool.
  9. Deliver the overdenture to the patient and make tissue and occlusional adjustments as needed.
