Prosthetic protection at site 22

The implant at site 22 has a slightly buccal emergence profile, which can be corrected with the abutment with minimal crestal bulk.

Prosthetic prediction at site 12

The implant at site 12 has a distobuccal emergence profile. As a result, the abutment may be bulky at the buccal aspect of the alveolar crest. In addition, the abutment would enter the crown distally to the long axis of the optimal crown orientation.

Normal implant 22

The implant at site 22 is in close proximity to the mesial surface of tooth 23. However, no damage has occurred to tooth 23. No signs of peri-implant bone loss are present. Note the buccal emergence profile of the implant relative to the temporary crown of tooth 22.

Buccolingual views of implant 22

These buccolingual cross-sectional images demonstrate the intact bone on the buccal and palatal surfaces of the implant at site 22. Bone overlies the coronal portion of the implant as well.

Mesiodistal views of implant 22

These mesiodistal cross-sectional images demonstrate the close proximity of the apex of implant 22 to the mesial surface of tooth 23. Tooth 23 does not appear to have been affected by the implant. Tooth 21 appears normal.

1. Thin buccal bone over implant 12

The bone overlying the buccal surface of the implant at site 12 is thinned. The remaining bone surfaces appear normally osseointegrated.

Mesiodistal views of implant 12

The mesial and distal surfaces of implant 12 appear normal radiographically. Teeth 11 and 13 also appear normal radiographically.

Buccolingual views of implant 12

These buccolingual cross-sectional images demonstrate the thin bone that overlies the buccal surface of implant 12, as well as the normal bone overlying the palatal surface of the implant.

2. Maxillary sinus mucositis

Moderate mucositis is present in both maxillary sinuses. This is a nonsignificant incidental finding.
