Incisive foramen: can we place an implant in this site?

I have planned a case for immediate extraction and implant placement of a Nobel Active implant. We will be doing the socket shield technique and loading it on the same day with an acrylic temporary crown. The CBCT shows the incisive foramen just palatal to the tooth. Do you think we can place an implant in this site?
