  • CONCLUSIONS: A fractured locater abutment screw fragment was successfully removed using an implant repair kit including drills, drill guides and tapping instruments. To avoid similar complications, it is recommended to use appropriate manufacturer specified torque values in conjunction with compatible restorative components.Retaining and abutment screw loosenings/fractures are one of the most common mechanical problems associated with the implant components.
