Abstract

Fractured implant abutment screws can be retrieved with repair or rescue devices. However, whether the screw was completely retrieved or the inner implant body was damaged may be uncertain. A silicone replica technique was recently implemented in Bern and may be the most predictable method available at the moment for clinically assessing the internal implant body. This technique is straightforward and precise and may help dentists determine the internal implant condition when managing a fractured screw.
