Disappearing dental implant: recommendations?

Last Updated January 19, 2018

I placed an implant in UR 2 site. It had considerable bone loss, especially on the buccal. I decided to screw the implant a bit more into the bone and suddenly the implant disappeared. The X-ray showed the implant stuck close to nose bone . I tried to remove the implant but could not find it. I put in some sutures and informed the patient. What do you recommend that I do now?
