I placed a 3.5—11.5 implant in the canine region. It was placed distally towards the first premolar. The first premolar was then treated endodontically. The implant does not show any mobility.The prosthesis was then delivered. The canine was kept out of occlusion in centric and protusion while in contact during lateral excursion along with the premolars. The patient now complains of slight pain or discomfort while masticating. What do you recommend at this time?
