Radiopaque bone lesion at future implant site: thoughts?

Last Updated September 21, 2017

25-year old female patient presented for implant placement of teeth #46 and 47. Teeth were extracted a few years ago. The CT shows multiple radiopaque lesions. Some of those lesions are at the implant site. My differential diagnosis includes idopathic osteosclerosis or cemento-osseous dysplasia. What other conditions may be included in the list? Would you place implants on those sites? I am concerned about overheating the bone while drilling and placing the implants. I am thinking of taking a bone sample with a trephine and place implants.
