Dentist could not remove cracked implant, what should we do?

Q. folow on re: cracked implant – husbandhas just seen his dentist who could not remove the cracked implant – what should we do – the dentist quite obviously hasn\’t got a clue what he is doing, the bone is heeling well – he siad he might have to \’dig\’ the implant out and has even mentioned bone grafts – as I siad we\’ll worry about negligence claim later but what about my poor husband\’s dentistry!!! # Many thanks,
A. I would seek a 2nd opinion from a Implant specialist, the implant needs to removed with a special drill called a trephine, it is designed to cut around the implant, it unfortunately does remove some of the bone.
