Should I be concerned about this implant?

Sinus lift was performed via the crestal approach. The crown on the implant is poorly fitting, with food easily getting underneath it. It can be flossed up to the abutment. Finally saw x-rays today and I am concerned over the amount of the implant not in bone. Also, the non-angled abutment for the tooth where it exits the tooth is in the left rear corner. The crown was screwed on and the hole in the corner filled. I have not had a CT post implant, but am wondering if I should get a consult with another oral surgeon or some other specialist. Any comments and/or suggestions?
