Implant 46 with GBR: Recommendations?

Last Updated February 13, 2017
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

Tooth #46 tooth was extracted 1 year before and is missing the buccal plate. At the time of extraction, no bone augmentation was done.
My plan is to install a 4.2 x11mm implant and do GBR simultaneously.
1.Is it a big problem that I am putting the implant in a slightly lower position because I want to have only vestibular threads of the implant exposed? Will this be only an esthetic problem or are there other issues?
2.I am thinking of using Cerabone, a xenograft (Botiss) and Collprotect collagen membrane (Botiss). Will this be better than Jason pericardium membrane (Botiss)?
What are your recommendations?
