I have a colleague that sent this case for restoration of the two newly placed maxillary implants shown in the attached radiograph. I noticed that the head of implant at No. 13 is exposed through the gum. My question: Can this be predictably corrected with soft and hard tissue augmentation, or would it be best to ask my colleague to consider removal and replacement at the crestal bone level -- prior to restoration. Note -- the lower opposing will be restored with and implant supported FPD also. Thank you for your opinions! They are always tremendously appreciated.
