A simple procedure for retrieval of a cement-retained implant-supported crown: A case report
Buzayan, Muaiyed Mahmoud / Mahmood, Wan Adida Azina Binti / Yunus, Norsiah Binti
Retrieval of cement-retained implant prostheses can be more demanding than retrieval of screw-retained prostheses. This case report describes a simple and predictable procedure to locate the abutment screw access openings of cementretained implant-supported crowns in cases of fractured ceramic veneer. A conventional periapical radiography image was captured using a digital camera, transferred to a computer, and manipulated using Microsoft Word document software to estimate the location of the abutment screw access.
