Locator abutments

Posted on By Mahommed Ismail In Implants

I have a case with two implants in the lower jaw and a full upper denture. The implants are restored with locator abutments. Every month the retentive caps (blue) deform and the denture does not fit. Tried using caps from another supplier however same problem. Has anyone experienced something similar or any suggestions will be appreciated.

With the retentive caps on locators, the implants have to be very close to parallel. most likely the path of insertion on both locators are slightly different. Best to try the forgiving green caps and see if there is a difference.

All fails, try doing a re pick up in-situ to ensure the female components are correctly located.



Thanks Sav
