External Hex Platforms with fractured screws: best plan?

Last Updated January 10, 2019

I have a patient who presented with an implant supported fixed partial denture #12-14 [maxillary left first premolar to first molar; 24-26]. The fixed partial denture has #12 and #13 [maxillary left second premolar; 25] as splinted double abutments and #14 is a distal cantilevered pontic. The 2 abutments have external hex platforms with fractured screws. I am pretty sure I can get the broken screws out but can I still get parts to do a new screw retained post? Does anyone recognize the implant? Has anyone done a reverse custom post to fit a bridge? Patient also has financial constraints. Thoughts on this case?
