Can an impacted wisdom tooth be replaced with an implant at the correct angle?

You do not need to replace the wisdom tooth with a dental implant. Extract the tooth and leave it. You do not need it. Good luck.
Replacing a wisdom tooth with an implant
Hi and thank you for your question. As an Oral Surgeon, I do not advice anyone to replace a wisdom tooth with implants or even to restore a decayed wisdom tooth. You will function properly without the wisdom tooth in place. Good luck to you.
Implant for wisdom tooth
Implants are not typically used to replace wisdom teeth (third molars).
From your description, I would recommend extraction of the wisdom tooth in question and there will be no need to consider an upper implant to oppose it.
You will have adequate function without both teeth with no adverse impact on your oral health.
