crowned second molar got infected for the 2nd time and was extracted. The implant
was put in 6 months after the tooth
extraction. The dental surgeon said my bone is very dense so upon putting in the implant, the abutment was also put in in the same session. However, due to the density of my bone, the implant could not be drilled all the way in, even with manual torquing, without risking loose threading (about 1mm left).
1. Will the slightly elevated implant+abutment cause any problems, if any?
