Article Series – Clinical Case Report of Misused Implant Componentry

This is a three-part article series written by Dr. Alex Loh detailing a clinical case of misused implant componentry. The first two parts cover critical knowledge required for management of a complex inherited implant restorative case, specifically regarding the lack of clarity regarding screw-retained and cement-retained prostheses and the nuances of indexed and non-indexed abutments. The final part compiles this information to describe how these concepts were used to retrieve and manage a clinical case where implant componentry was incorrectly used.

Part 1 of this three-part article series discusses the poor and vague definitions of screw-retained and cement-retained prostheses, and uses clear diagrams to show all possible ways an implant can be restored and all the componentry involved. This is concluded with suggested and more clear definitions of what the literature refers to as screw-retained and cement-retained prostheses.
