Thread-Skip: An Undefined Common Observation
McDermott, Peter / Allan, William (Billy) D. E.
When a screw-retained implant prosthesis is removed, a click is heard and a slight axial shift is felt, indicating the screw has been fully removed from the retaining thread. This common observation has never been described in the literature. This article describes the click, and it is proposed it be termed thread-skip.
