Implant Mechanical Rescue (IMR)

Broken Dental Implant Abutments and Screws

Implant Mechanical Rescue (IMR) is simply the process of recovering or rescuing a case which has suffered a mechanical failure in the supporting implant hardware.  Failure can occur for various reasons but if it does, it can involve retrieving fractured screws or abutments, or other components.  Additionally, if possible, the central question of ‘why did it fail’, needs to be forensically determined so future repeat failure can be avoided.

Our main goals are:
(A) to help patients who are in need of qualified care for implant mechanical failure; and (B) to help dentists successfully diagnose the problem and treat the situation, or refer to a qualified dentist.  (Dentists may experience difficulty with implant mechanical failure in their own cases or in new cases presented upon referral.)

Evaluation and Resolution of Abutment Failure

Component system failure can potentially be caused by one or more scenarios including contact between teeth (occlusal design), patient based failure, a random event, implant manufacture defects, or accuracy in design of the case. Our team is trained to assist you in gathering information up front in order to help determine if the implant, screw or abutment is broken and what attempts were already made to resolve the problem. Dr. Mastrovich has experience with over 800 cases that support his efforts to decrease failure and increase success.

Lectures About Broken Implant Abutments and Screws

Dentists will learn how to perform a safe retrieval of failed implant components (abutment, screw or both).

With over 800 cases successfully performed since 2009, on over 38 implant systems, Dr. Mastrovich is sought after for guest lectures and training.  He has lectured to dental study clubs, as well as the larger groups of several hundred dentists to more than a thousand each of the times he has spoken at the Academy of OsseoIntegration.  For both dental professionals and patients, Dr. Mastrovich has the ability to present his cutting-edge findings, algorithms and techniques in an accessible and understandable format with relatable examples and case studies.

Qualified Doctors Currently Available to Provide Successful Implant Mechanical Rescues

Our goal is to establish a network of dental practices that have committed the effort to position themselves so they can be a “center of referral” for these cases and be highly predictable in the outcomes by utilizing appropriate tooling, microscope visualization, and access to certain precision tooling when needed. Additionally, only the practices involved will be reporting their cases to a common database for statistical analysis of what field, venues, and recovery system used. If many practices are reporting, the database could be large enough to have statistically meaningful data.
