Wants to take out the implant and replace it with a new one

I got an implant placed 2 months ago and when he went to put the crown on it didn't fit. It was loose. But the x ray showed no infection or problem, looked normal. He said it wasn't healed and is loose and wants to take out the implant and replace it with a new one? Should I wait and see if it will heal or let him do it.

He also put me on antibiotics for a week?
Thank you

Bone growth NEW

Placing you on antibiotics won't fix anything unless there is an infection. This sounds like the bone didn't fuse effectively around your implant yet. It may be wise to let him place another implant but then allow a longer healing time before a crown is placed on it. If the implant hasn't healed as long as it needs to then it can still feel loose when a crown is placed too early.
