Immediately rescue a fixed-hybrid prosthesis after an implant failure


When challenging fixed-hybrid implant failures happen, a prosthesis emergency could result. In the past, replacing the prosthesis was the only option available as it was virtually impossible for the existing prosthesis to seat passively in the altered position of the screw-retained components at the replacement implant site. Zest Dental Solutions recently introduced the LOCATOR F-Tx Fixed Attachment System, revolutionizing the way clinicians think about fixed full-arch restorations by not requiring screws or cement to affix the prosthesis. The unique design of the LOCATOR F-Tx System also allows it to be the only immediate solution on the market today to rescue a fixed-hybrid prosthesis when an implant fails.

The unique design of the LOCATOR F-Tx Fixed Attachment System includes a novel “snap-in” attachment that is picked up chairside, ensuring a passive fit, while working in harmony with existing screw-retained abutments, and saving both clinicians and patients substantial time, money, and frustration.

Zest Dental Solutions President and CEO Steve Scheiss, explains, “Now clinicians can not only offer a fixed full-arch restoration without using screws or cement to affix the prosthesis, they can also use the same technology to save a patient’s prosthesis when a fixed-hybrid emergency occurs. LOCATOR F-Tx arms clinicians with one product that provides multiple treatment solutions for fixed restorations.”

“LOCATOR F-Tx represents another paradigm shift from Zest that allows clinicians to provide innovative treatment solutions to their edentulous patients,” Scheiss added. Zest Dental Solutions is a global leader in the design, development, manufacturing, and distribution of diversified dental solutions for a continuum of patient care from the preservation of natural teeth to the treatment of total edentulism. The company’s product portfolios consist of Zest Anchors, Danville Materials, and Perioscopy with global distribution through OEMs, dealer/distributor networks, as well as a domestic retail sales operation for the Zest Anchors Portfolio. Zest Dental Solutions’ corporate headquarters is in Carlsbad, California, with satellite operations in Anaheim and Escondido, California.
