I have a Hiossen 5.0x11.5 implant. Pt just came in complaining of loose crown and some (mild-moderate) pain when chewing.
Xrays shows fractured screw in the bottom 1/3 of the screw. Would I be able to retrieve the broken screw with ESR kit?

try water and explore first rotating it CC. If that doesn't work, try 1/2 round bur on slow speed on CC but be careful. ESR has a small round bur I believe. Obviously be careful not to damage internal walls of implant. I'm guessing this is due to occlusal trauma as there is no molar occlusion on this side.
