Incorrect positioning of implant in distal socket: recommendations?

Last Updated January 25, 2018
Reviewed By:  Dr. Gerald Rudick

The implant was placed in the distal socket of 46 immediately after extraction and is nicely healed. The problem is that it is in the wrong position, being too far to the distal. Do you recommend that a second implant be placed in the mesial? The total space is 14mm or little more. What do you recommend?
