Implant Fixture moved buccally and gingival margin higher: how to manage?

Last Updated January 17, 2019

The root of #9 [maxillary left central incisor; 21; (UL1)] was extracted in September 2012 and the implant fixture was placed in November 2012. I recently uncovered and placed a healing abutment. I found that the implant fixture had moved buccally and the the gingival margin was higher than the cervical margin of #8 [maxillary right central incisor; 11; (UR1)].  How can I manage this situation?
