I had placed an Osstem 4x11mm implant in 36 region 3 years ago. Eventually the screw broke. I retrieved it. The implant also shows a crack line on the labial surface
This is an implant I did last September. Does this look like a fistula?
The bone defect in the #8 site is very large and connected to the incisive canal. The periodontal health of the surrounding teeth is stable.
After a week, the implant patient presented with flap dehiscence. I re-sutured and again the same picture.
I have done 30 immediate and conventional implant loading cases. But never early loading.

My question relates to the placement of implants in the anterior mandible. Is there any concern for bleeding or neuropathic pain if we perforate the incisive canal.

Tooth #46 tooth was extracted 1 year before and is missing the buccal plate. At the time of extraction, no bone augmentation was done.
I would like to learn more about bicortical, immediate-loading implants. These implants have a smooth surface and depend on osseofixation to the cortical bone for primary stability.
The tooth had a large abscess and large periapical radiolucent lesion. I tried to curette as much as possible, but did not graft the socket.
