Additively manufactured implant abutment screw-access guide to remove a cement-retained implant crown: A technique.
Additional Document Info
A complete digital workflow to remove a cement-retained implant-supported crown by using an additively manufactured implant abutment screw-access guide is described. The existing cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan was superimposed on the digital scans of the patient, which facilitated the visualization of the implant abutment screw access and guided the design of the device. Advantages of the technique described include the precise translation of the implant abutment screw access, safe removal of the implant crown, and conservative clinical intervention.
