Dental Implants: Q&AAsk a Question
The Screw Head of the Dental Implant Broke Off. Is This Common? How Difficult to Fix?
My husband is in the process of getting a dental implant. Each step has presented problems. The last part of the procedure that he had done involved implanting the screw. The screw head broke off. The dentist now wants to go in and notch the head with a lazer and try to remove it with a screwdriver. My husband is very hesitant to proceed. Is this a common occurrance and what risks are involved with the procedure to remove the screw and replace it with another. What would success rate be?
