I treatment planned a 32 year old female patient for extraction of her maxillary second premolar and immediate placement of an implant in the extraction site. The maxillary second premolar is misaligned and this is what the patient wants in the way of treatment. The adjacent teeth are malposed with gingival recession. The adjacent teeth are not mobile. Her oral hygiene is excellent. How will the gingival condition of the adjacent teeth effect the prognosis of the case? What do you advise?
