Questionable position of implant: recommendations?

Last Updated October 16, 2019

I installed an implant in #31 site [madibular right second molar’47]. The implant is not centered in the mesiodistal space between #32 and 30 [mandibular right third and first molars; 48, 46]. The implant is too far to the distal and too close to #32 and too far from #30. When I insert the crown, it will have almost a cantilever on the mesial which may increase the occlusal force on the implant. Also the implant has been placed too far above the alveolar crest. It should have been placed deeper. What do you recommend I do at this point?
