Space too narrow for implant?

Last Updated September 17, 2018

I have a very challenging case. As you can see on the x-ray, the space in the cervical area is 5mm and the space between roots is 4mm. Even if I use a 2mm diameter implant it only leaves 1mm space between implant and tooth. I learned in dental school that the ideal space between the tooth and the implant is 1.5mm. Is it possible to place an implant in this case? Please note that I cannot provide a CBCT because there is no CBCT available in the area where I practice (outside the US).
