Dr. B. asks:
I cemented a crown on a dental implant abutment using a mixture of Tempbond [Kerr] and Vaseline. Pre-cementation radiograph showed a perfect fit. The post-cementation radiograph showed that the crown was 1mm short of the margin.
I have attempted to remove it and re-cement it but have been unsuccessful. Any recommendations on how to remove it? On the other hand, the occlusion is clinically acceptable, so what would be the danger in leaving it as is?
