Broken screw inside implant

I had an implant done in the early 90's and the screw that connects the crown/post to the inplant sheard in half. The majority is left in the implant. I had what was left put back in, but there are not enough threads left and it keeps comming loose. Is there a technique available to remove the broken part from the implant and insert a whole new screw?
On a car you would use an easyout.

Broken Screw
by: Sharon B., RDH

If there are enough threads on the screw to have tried to re-attach the crown, I would think your implant specialist could get enough traction on the screw and remove it, to replace it with another screw. I'm assuming you have not been reattaching the crown yourself. An Implant Specialist should be able to change this screw out for you.

We have an "ease-out" for removing broken screw in our implant kit. If it comes out it's an easy fix but sometimes it's easier just to replace the entire implant.
