Zest locator attachment overdenture: cause of food impaction?

Last Updated February 10, 2015

I inserted an implant retained overdenture using two Zest Locator attachments. The overdenture occlusion is stable. I picked up the two Locators chairside. The patient is complaining that she gets food underneath the overdenture every time she eats. Could the Locator abutments be too tall? I used the deepest area of the gingiva to select the Locator abutment height. What can I do to eliminate this problem?
