Use the power of counter-clockwise force to safely explant failed implants.
Implant Fixture Removal Tool Kit: How it Works
- Save surrounding bone and structures.
Unique fixture remover screws and wrench help you remove implants with no compromise to surrounding bone, and no damage to neighboring structures.
- Designed to work with any threaded and self-tapping implant system.
3 different fixture screws to fit any threaded and self-tapping implant system. One reverse threaded driver remover for all implant sizes.
- Based on proven "counter clockwise" principle
Fixtures with rough surfaces can be explanted by applying a sufficient amount of force in a counter clockwise direction, which allows preservation of the surrounding bone, and makes implant removal a more predictable procedure.
- Simple Removal Technique
- Choose the correct Fixture Remover screw (FRS).
- Using the adapter, insert the FRS into the implant in a counter-clockwise direction.
- Once the FRS is seated the remover wrench is set in a “counter-clockwise” direction, apply a counter-clockwise force until the implant becomes mobile.
- Combination Technique: Use Reverse Torque Technique with included Trephines for rare, hard-to-manage cases.
Some patients experience pain under high reverse drive, and some implants will require these high torques for removal. In these extreme cases, as per Froum S (Compendium. 2011;32(7):2-24), to remove the implant without damaging the surrounding bone, trephines are used with the FR screws. However, do NOT use the trephines all the way to the end of the implant. Instead, use the trephines for 1/2 or 1/3 and then use the specialized fixture removers and reverse threaded driver to remove the rest of the implant.
