Removing Malpositioned Implant: recommendations?

Last Updated Mon Jul 19 2021

59 year old female. About a year ago I extracted #3 and placed a socket preservation bone graft upon referral by general dentist. The dentist then placed the implant (see images). The new dentist who took over the general dentist practice told patient that the implant is malpositioned and needs the implant removed, re-grafted, and subsequently a new implant placed. I am planning to raise a flap, remove the implant, and graft. I think a titanium mesh would be the best approach in this case. Any recommendations? Thanks.
