The removal tool (Fig.3, catalog # TLRT2) for Hex-Lock® abutments aides in the removal of installed abutments since the abutments friction fit in to the implants. Removal of installed abutments may be difficult and damaging to the osseo integrated state of implants without this tool. The fixation screw of the abutment needs to be completely removed before utilizing the removal tool.
