Misangled Implant Case: Best Course of Action?

Last Updated July 26, 2010

Dr. YC, a general dentist asks,

I have treatment planned a patient for replacement of a missing #27 [mandibular left canine; 43] with an implant, abutment and crown (see case photos below). When I checked the angulation of the implant after I had finished placing it, the implant was angled too far to the labial. How can I solve this problem when I do the prosthesis ? Use angled abutment in second stage? Would the best course of action be to remove the implant and to correct the angulation of its long axis?
