I got an implant on tooth #3 3 weeks ago. I'm missing the tooth behind it (back molar) and I'm not getting it replaced because my dentist says there's not enough room for a crown back there. My bite is short, I think it's called vertical occlusion? So my bottom molars, which are crowned, almost meet my top gums back there. My dentist had said I have room for an implant #3, which I got and when I look at my bite it's still really close. Now I'm worried. If it's still too close, what are some possible options for restoring the implant over there?
