5.
Attach the Parallel Posts to the abutments
to determine the degree of divergence. If the
divergence is less than 10° use the clear, pink
or blue
Locator
Male. If the angle is greater than
10° use an Extended Range Male (green or red).
4.
Insert a 1.25mmD Hex Tool into the back
end of the Abutment Driver. Apply a minimum
of 20 Ncm of torque with a calibrated Torque
Wrench. As an alternative, use the
Locator
Torque Wrench Insert Driver (LOCTW15) with the
Torque Wrench for tightening of the abutment.
9.
Loosen the
Locator
Male Removal Tool tip a
full two turns counter-clockwise and insert the tip
into the cap/male assembly and push straight
in (Fig. 1). The sharp edge of the tip will grab the
Nylon Male and allow you to pull it out. Tighten
the tip clockwise back into the Core Tool to
release the liner (Fig. 2).

Use the
Locator
Male Seating Tool to firmly
push the
Locator
Replacement Male into the
empty metal cap located within the denture.
The male component must sit flush with the
rim of the metal cap.
11.
The
Locator
Abutments should be retightened
with a minimum of 20 Ncm of torque. Here the
completed restoration is in place.
6b.
An optional technique is to use the patient’s
prosthesis in combination with the Cap with
Black Processing Male for a reline impression.
7.
Transfer technique: Insert the
Locator
Abutment
Analogs into the Impression Copings located
within the impression material.
Reline technique: Attach the Analog to the Cap
prior to inserting the assembly into impression.
8.
The laboratory fabricates the working cast.
Place the White Block-Out Spacer over the head
of the

Abutment Analog. Attach the Cap
with Black Processing Male. Process the denture
following standard procedures.
