Any Ridge Implant: Suggestions after noticing periapical lesion?

Last Updated January 17, 2019

I installed an Any Ridge 3.5 x 8mm [MegaGen] in #11 site 8 weeks after extraction. I noted in the post-operative periapical radiograph that the implant has developed a periapical lesion around its apex. AnyRidge implants have a very aggressive thread and I am worrying that it is maybe too wide or have required excessive torqueing force to install. I may have overheated the bone or applied too much force to the bone. What do you recommend I do at this point?
(By the way, the other implant placed is Astra Tech. Placed a few years earlier and clinically no issues).
