A Novel Cryo-Mechanical Approach for the Removal of Blocked Nonretrievable Implant Components
The International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants, February 7, 2013
Joda T et al. - The removal of nonretrievable implant components represents a challenge in implant dentistry. The mechanical approach involves the risk of damaging the implant connection or the bone-to-implant interface. This case report describes a cryo-mechanical approach for the safe removal of a nonretrievable implant component. The approach of creating an access hole for the application of reverse torque via the extraction bolt in combination with the thermal ...
