Implant: Load or Remove?

Last Updated Fri Jan 08 2021

Female patient, 55, free MH, smoker. Patient received 8 upper implants (immediate implant placement) at the end of June 2020. All of them had been torqued over 35 Ncm. Implants loaded the day after placement. Yesterday, I removed provisional to check the acrylic jig. All implants are ok excluding UL5. Pt mentioned slight tenderness during manipulation. Tried to move the implant, but the implant didn’t seem to acquire mobility. No pocketing around UL5, non BoP. Still, the patient is clear the the implant is tender when trying to move or rotate the implant. Is the implant failing? To load or not? Thank you
