How are Locator attachments measured?

The tissue cuff height measurement must be taken at each implant site using the deepest side of the tissue for measuring from the apical shoulder of the implant to the crest of the tissue. If the measurement is 3 mm, choose a 3 mm tissue cuff height for the Locator Abutment.

Using a periodontal probe, measure the height of the gingiva at the highest point and select the cuff height of the LOCATOR Abutment that corresponds to that measurement. If it is 2mm, choose a 2mm cuff height. An additional 1.5mm of Abutment height will extend above the gingiva to accommodate for the Denture Cap.

Furthermore, how do you choose locator abutment? Select the proper Locator abutment based on the prosthetic platform and the tissue height. Measure the tissue thickness from the top of the implant to the crest of the gingiva at its highest point. Choose the abutment cuff height that exactly equals the tissue height or is slightly taller.
