Abstract

This article demonstrates a method to salvage an implant that has been damaged or is no longer usable because of a fractured screw that cannot be removed. In the first situation the patient had a Locator abutment that fractured during torqueing of the abutment. Despite the attempt to remove the fractured screw, it was not retrievable, and the internal threads of the implant were damaged in the attempt to remove the screw. Rather than removing the implant or covering it and sleeping the implant, a custom cast post was used to restore the implant to function. A second example describes a patient with a fixed implant crown. The implant was damaged during attempts to remove the fractured screw. A custom post was fabricated and cemented, and a new crown was fabricated.
