Rhein83 presents the Ot Equator and the SmartBox

by Dental Tribune America

Rhein83, an innovative company that is known as a leader in the production of attachments for removable prosthesis, presents the Ot Equator and the SmartBox. According to the company, the Ot Equator is the smallest dimensional attachment system on the market, counting on a reduced vertical profile of 2.1 mm with a 4.4 mm diameter.

It is compatible with all implant systems and brands. The innovative design of the Equator attachment provides a superior stability and retention to the prosthesis, and it offers the following features and benefits:

  • The smallest dimensional implant abutment available on the market.
  • Manufactured compatible to all implant brands and platforms.
  • Available in eight different cuff heights.
  • TiN coating procedure increasing the hardness and duration in time.
  • Different elastic retentive caps available.
  • SmartBox system now available: allowing to correct over 50 degrees of implant divergency.
  • Single castable and threaded titanium attachment systems available.
  • Instructions to indicate when ordering: implant brand, diameter, gingival height.
  • ISO 9001 – ISO 13485 valid certificates.
  • FDA – CE – Russia – Canada – Japan – Korea (and more countries) valid patent.



Also available from Rhein83 is the new SmartBox, to be used in case of extreme divergencies between the implants with the Ot Equator, the smallest implant attachment on the market. The new SmartBox features an inner tilting mechanism that allows a passive insertion with divergent implants up to 50 degrees.

Expert opinion by Roberto Scrascia, DDS

In the implant prosthetic rehabilitation with an overdenture, the choice of the retentive systems is a crucial moment; it is fundament to analyze and evaluate carefully the options provided by the market in order to avoid problems that may occur at an early stage or during the treatment. Before the SMART BOX there was little chance to use the good performances of the OT Equator with severe divergences of the implants given by the available bone after the resorption of the aged patient jaws. In situations like these a low profile attachment is often the preferable solution, because it provides a good stability and all the space for an aesthetic denture.

Thanks to the innovative and original mechanism we can extend the limit of usability of the OT Equator attachment without losing none of its performances and its qualities. The Smart Box with the tilting mechanism allows and facilitates the smooth insertion of the prosthesis, a positive feature of the OT Equator by Rhein83. Smart Box is a new product that provides us a good opportunity to enhance the solutions to be proposed to the patient in our everyday work.
