I believe the patient felt relief with the healing abutment in place and the parulis was gone.Fast forward to today an...

Hi Mark,I have to remove a dethreaded prosthetic screw on a 25 SCRC crown in the next few weeks and just had a few questions....1) In the "Implant Complications" workshop we were told to use  a No. 2 round bur first and then try to engage the screw with the Mini Abutment Removal Drivers in the ESR Kit. However, in your demo video you mention using a No. 8  round bur. Which one would you recommend? I noticed that the No.8 round bur seems...
