Mobile implant removed: most predictable procedure?

Last Updated October 28, 2019

I installed an implant in #30 site [mandibular right first molar; 46; LR6] about 1 week ago. The implant was stable with adequate primary stability. Healing was otherwise uneventful. The patient returned for a follow up after 1 week and the implant was mobile. I removed it quite easily from its osteotomy. What should I do at this point? Should I insert some bone graft material into the osteotomy site? If so, which kind of bone graft material would you recommend. I would then wait 6 months before attempting to install another implant. Or should I just wait 3 months and install a wider implant? Which procedure would be more predictable?
