How would you manage this soft tissue and papillae loss?

In this All on 4 case, what is my window to place the anteriors implants after placing the posteriors?
Tooth #19 had failed RCT with infection and fistula and large radiolucent lesion. It was extracted and a bone graft done and implant placed 5 months later.
A 35 year old female patient presented with a wobbly crown that was placed on this implant in #30 site only a week ago.
About a month or so after the implant was placed, infection set in and caused some bone loss.
The socket and the ridge were preserved by augmenting the area with Bond apatite bone graft cement.
What do you think of the spacing between the implants? It seems like the new implants are very close to the voids. Does this increase the possibility of implant failure?
Note that the implant and abutment are quite deep. What is the best technique?
After CBCT analysis, I noticed the deficient palatal bone wall on slices 48 and 50. I am not sure what this is.
I have identified the mental foramen but it also appears as though there may be a secondary foramen just mesial to it. I am seeing the shadow just mesial to the mental foramen and am wondering what it could be.
CBCT revealed large maxillary sinus mucous retention cyst. Treatment plan was to remove cyst with delayed graft.
This patient presented with a three-rooted premolar #5 that has a chronic periapical lesion that been asymptomatic. Would you use a delayed or immediate approach?
I am considering as my primary treatment plan doing bilateral sinus lifts with bone grafts and installing 3 implants on each side or All on 4.
The CT showed that the dental implant, placed immediately, is fully exposed on the palatal, very disappointing.
The implant in question is fractured, causing the abutment and crown to be dislodged. You can see the distal aspect of the occlusal platform bulges out and this implant will no longer support an abutment or screw.
This patient had peri-implantitis. I grafted the area with Bio-Oss, allograft and autogenous mixed with PRF serum and held in place with titanium-reinforced membrane.
The image is then printed by a 3D printer, producing a resorbable bone graft that fits your patient precisely.
The non cemented, friction fit retention of this implant and abutment design is bothersome for the patient. Does anyone know of a solution to upgrade this implant?
She has a generalized, aggressive form of periodontitis and many of her teeth are mobile and with a poor long term prognosis.
I am wondering how we can restore this implant in the #12 site. There was an error and case ended up with an implant that is angulated towards #13.
This patient presented with a missing maxillary second premolar with a root tip at its apex. If this were smaller, I would probably just plan on drilling through it.
I have been seeing many cases like this where there is adequate alveolar ridge height but deficient buccolingual alveolar bone width.
I extracted the tooth in September 2016 and placed an implant that day. I started to restore the implant yesterday and I discovered a fistula.
The tooth has had conventional endodontic therapy and then an apicoectomy. What is the best implant treatment plan here?
There is reduced bone height beneath maxillary sinus and the lateral sinus wall is rather thick. I wonder if I should perform lateral sinus lift or internal sinus lift and simultaneous implant placement.
