This report describes a method to restore an implant with irreversibly damaged internal threads. The remaining fractured post from the previous restoration was removed using a combination of an impression coping and an end-cutting bur. An elastomeric impression of the internal surface of the damaged implant, as well as the position of the adjacent implant, was made for fabrication of a new cast post and core and an implant supported 2-unit ceramometal splinted prosthesis.
