Loose abutment

We are sorry to hear about that!


If it looks like this in the photograph, then it's very likely the implant abutment screw that has come loose. 

All it needs is a quick tighten which takes just 5-10 mins, however, you'll need to find a local implantologist who has the right hex screwdriver (typically 0.9 mm or 1.2mm)

 (not an emergency dentist - they most likely won't be able to do anything apart from an x-ray).

The implant system you have is called "Neodent (Straumann)".

If you prefer that we tighten the implant, feel free to come over anytime to our Bratislava city centre clinic.
