New Locator R-Tx attachment system

New Products

Nobel Biocare is further advancing its comprehensive product range for edentulous treatment with the Locator R-Tx™ Removable Denture Attachment System.


Locator R-Tx is an evolution of the successful Locator® Attachment System. This next-generation attachment offers clinicians a number of advantages versus its predecessor. These include the new DuraTec™ titanium carbon nitride coating. DuraTec is harder and more wear-resistant than the nitride coating of the legacy Locator and is designed to reduce roughness. The Locator R-Tx system eliminates the need for pre-angled abutments. Its redesigned attachment housing is able to pivot up to 30° over the seated Locator R-Tx nylon retention inserts, allowing up to 60° convergence or divergence between implants. The attachment housing also incorporates flats and grooves to prevent dislodgement of the denture and is anodized to give it a pink colour, which can help improve aesthetics.
