Hereâs another one for you all! Just saw this 76-year-old male this week. He was referred by his new periodontist for a restorative evaluation. The lateral incisor is hopeless and will be extracted. The surgeon is wondering if I can use the implant in the canine position. The implant in the premolar position is well integrated although it is too far buccal for good alignment. Should the premolar implant be removed?
What should we be thinking about relative to implant placement and restoring this part of his mouth?
