As a microscoper sometimes I’m asked to fix some problems with dental implants. I call it implant-endo algorithm 🙂
This implant was installed and served for 8years. The patient suffered perimplantitis and RD decided to remove the bridge. At that time the old screw crashed inside the implant shaft and couldn’t be retrieved. As an endodontist I used to deal with smaller fragments but this screw comparing my routine work was really huge! Just imagine that its size was like a file #120 ISO. The screw was unscrewed during the short-time. Unfortunately the gums came on the implant and I had to re-exposure it.
