Missing maxillary central incisor: thoughts?

Last Updated October 23, 2017

My patient is missing the maxillary central incisor. The incisive canal is very large and is situated to the lingual. There is only 3.19mm between incisive canal and lateral incisor. Buccolingually, there is only 4.76mm bone labial to the incisive canal area. Placing a single implant in the maxillary central site may not be a good option. Another plan would be to extract the lateral incisor and cantilever the central incisor. A bridge from the lateral incisor to the other central is not an option since it is already and implant and the patient does not want to remove the crown. Any other options to restore this case?
