Innovative developments in Implant design help denture wearers

LODI - Locator Overdenture Implant System by Zest Anchor(R)

A huge proportion of denture wearers struggle with the comfort and function of their teeth. This can lead to pain, soreness, poor nutrition and even loss of confidence. Many people who lost teeth earlier in life have reduced amounts of jaw bone due to natural 'shrinkage' over time. This can provide a challenge for the use of conventional implants.

Now a specific system combining narrow implants with a unique 'Locator' (R) - 'press stud like attachment' has been developed. This system aimed particularly at people with reduced amounts of bone, follows a simple two stage approach to bring significant improvements in denture stability, comfort and self-confidence.
