Is the implant crowns access hole decision made for aesthetic, convenience or mechanical reasons? 

As Technicians, we do understand dentist’s desire for screw-retention. However, we also want dentists to understand that in certain circumstances prioritizing screw-retention can lead to unwanted compromises which can be solved by deciding on cement retention instead! 

These days it is technically possible to screw-retain almost every implant case. But that should not lead to the conclusion that it is always desirable to do so! In other words, screw-retention does have some negative consequences. It is important to know what those consequences are so that you can make an informed decision when you decide on screw-vs. cement-retention.
