Ask the Petersons: What Screw is This?

Hybrid screws | Denture parts

Every day, our phones are flooded with calls from dentists seeking help and advice from our expert technicians. In our effort to provide superior service, we’ve decided to address our most frequently asked questions here on the blog. Got a question? Let us know, and we’ll answer it next month!

Dear Mike and Chris,

I’m constantly calling your lab for help identifying screws. How can I tell the difference? Please help!

-A Disoriented Dentist

Dear Disoriented,

You’re not alone! Many customers call our lab on a weekly basis asking for help identifying screws. These days it seems like we are living in the wild wild west. Every month a new company unveils their take on the “All on Four” concepts with a battery of components to support their spin on this ever-popular solution.

To help, we have gathered together 18 screws from 11 of the most popular implant companies and placed them side by side. In doing this, we hope to help out your staff the next time a screw-retained hybrid enters your practice.
