Why SHORT® Implants?

BICON SHORT® IMPLANTS offer flexibility to dentists in challenging clinical situations. The short lengths allow clinicians to avoid vital structures with confidence, and can eliminate the need for many grafting procedures. With Bicon, longer implant lengths are not necessarily better. In many clinical situations, shorter implants offer a better solution.

 

The Dentist

The clinical reality is that many potential implant patients have limited bone height. When placing longer implants, the maxillary sinus and inferior alveolar nerve often present risks. Although bone grafting procedures help alleviate these risks, patients may still avoid treatment because of the financial costs and time for grafting procedures. Additionally, bone grafting procedures have their own inherent risks and morbidities — which patients often find unacceptable. Bicon SHORT® Implants afford simpler and consistently more predictable treatments, which can significantly increase a patient’s acceptance of implant treatment.

The Patient

With the use of Bicon SHORT® Implants, patients with limited bone height can often avoid the inherent risks and costs associated with bone grafting procedures. Additionally, the extended healing time and cost of bone grafting procedures are eliminated.
