Looking back, I feel I submerged it lower than necessary but at the time I did not want the neck of the implant exposed out of native bone. From the 1 week followup ph...

Should I send it back to the lab? Thanks, Mike...

Case is a plan for fixture placement at 46 and 47 areas . I am concerned about bone density at 47 site .  This certainly does not look like an appropriate site for fixture placement .      What would be the most successful approach ?       1. Open site , Curettage and debridement , graft placement . 4 - 6 mo later place fixture .     2. Open site - treat this as a immediate...
