I placed 3 implants in the lower anterior region. The last implant in the third quadrant in #22 site felt like it perforated the lingual cortical plate a little bit at the apex. I took a CBCT and hence came to know about the lingual perforation. This is the first time I have encountered this kind of situation. What is the proper protocol?
