A Technique for Compensating for the Loose CeraOne Screw
Morton L. Krumholz, DDS
Clinical experience indicates that implant-supported crowns for the replacement of individual molars using the original, regular platform CeraOne protocol (Nobel Biocare) infrequently result in gold screws loosening. This article offers a technique that may prevent the CeraOne gold screw from working loose. It is intended to be a correction for a problem, not a first-time treatment. Also, this is a treatment that should be offered only after the prescribed Brånemark protocol for screw tightening and elimination of excursive contacts has proven ineffective.
