5 Months after Extraction: Place Implant Now or Wait Longer?

Last Updated October 26, 2017

I have treatment planned this patient for a 3.75×13 implant in the 35 site which was extracted 5 months ago. What is your opinion of the bone density in the radiolucent area? Should I wait a couple of months before implant placement? Should I place the implant now and hope that after 6 months when the implant is uncovered the bone will be have matured? I will place the implant 2-3mm apical to the cemento-enamel junction of the adjacent teeth. Do you think of the implant length and the implant-crown ratio will be acceptable?
