Need for Implant after Extraction and Prognosis for Existing Implant?

I am male, non-smoker in my seventies and healthy. My dentist tells me I have good bone density.

The abscessed lower pre molar tooth was removed 3 months ago in the left lower jaw. It has healed well. See the attached x-ray. Do you recommend an implant in this case? If so, how much longer can I wait to have it done?

Also, X-ray indicates an anterior gap of the existing Nobel implant. The existing implant is firm and painless with no apparent sign of infection. What is your prognosis and recommendation?
