Nobel Active abutment loose, but screw tight?

Last Updated November 21, 2014

Nobel Active 4.3mm x 11.5mm implant which has good osseointegration. The screw retained abutment snappy 5.5 conical connection 1.5mm RP was used and a cement retained crown was constructed due to the angulation of the implant. I now have looseness/movement of the crown/abutment even though I have the screw tight to 35Ncm. Any thoughts? Could there be a little cement from crown cementation impeding complete abutment seating. Though I tightened the screw to 35Ncm and radiographed to check abutment seating at the impression stage. I’m stumped!! What to do next??
