C24_Complication_01
A 47 year old male patient was referred to the clinic with a fractured implant screw.
C24_Complication_03
A Φ1.2mm Perfect guide connected to a PG driver.

C24_Complication_02
Periapical view. For a perfect guide to be screwed into the screw hole, an implant has to have at least 1mm of the screw threads on top of the fractured screw.

C24_Complication_04
A Φ1.2mm perfect guide was tightened to 15Ncm in the screw hole. A perfect guide positions a drill the dead center of the screw and prevents it from damaging the threads of the implant.

C24_Complication_06
A Φ1.0mm reverse drill is used at 2,000rpm with copious water irrigation. Drilling direction should be in reverse.

C24_Complication_08
Implant motor was turned on reverse.

C24_Complication_07
Using a perfect guide, a reverse drill was placed right on top of the fractured screw. Then approximately 1.0mm was gently drilled vertically down. The use of rubber stoppers is suggested for 1.0mm of depth control.

C24_Complication_09
A Φ1.0mm screw remover matching to the reverse drill is being connected to a shank driver.

C24_Complication_10
The fractured screw was being removed by rotating the screw in counterclockwise direction.

C24_Complication_11
The fractured screw came out of the screw hole.
