Last Updated March 01, 2019
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

While installing a Nobel Biocare Replace Select NP implant in the position of #29 [mandibular right second premolar; 45] in D2 bone, the implant fixture broke at its crest. Now the implant can not be removed or inserted further.The implant abutment can still be fitted and appears to be stable. Should I torque down the abutment screw or should I trephine out the implant fixture?
