Radio-opacity interference with implant success?

Last Updated December 04, 2017

I have a middle aged female patient who wants to replace missing #13, 14 with implants. My treatment plan is for 1 implant in the the first molar site with a cantilevered second premolar. There is not enough space mesiodistally for 2 implants. There is a radiopaque lesion in the site that a radiologist has diagnosed either as an enostosis or a retained root. Will this radiopaque lesion be a problem for the implants? Your thoughts on this case??
