Nobel Replace Select Implants


Dr. Furst asks us:

I had Nobel Biocare Replace Select Regular Platform implants placed in #8,9 sites 3 months ago.

When I went to torque down the abutment in #9 it rotated and it produced pain (i.e., a spinner). I had to administer local anesthesia. The radiograph does not show any bone loss around #9 dental implant other than the normal die-back. I am planning on connecting the two abutments with a dental implant bridge. What should I do at this point? Should I wait for more integration or should I just insert the abutments and bridge?
