Fig.2: This section (a 2-dimensional image) shows that there is a large bone defect (>) over the root #1 (mesiobuccal), whereas the bone plate over the root #2 (distobuccal) is intact (*).  A large implant (8 mm in diameter, in red circle) is designed to be placed away from the bone defect and fill the hole after the three roots are gone.
