Hello doctor,

I will check.



Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I have studied your latest CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) report. The problem with doing an implant where you lost the tooth is that there is very less bone available. This is not because an implant can be totally ruled out, it is because you will have only limited healing or bone growth in that area because you had an adjacent cyst in the neighboring teeth (not much suited for implant integration into the bone). I suggest you go for a bridge instead of a dental implant. To know your probability of success with a bridge or if you want to go ahead, particularly with an implant, then discuss those chances with me here, and I will tell you why.

Thank you.
