Placement of Two 4.5 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants and their Restoration with a Two-Unit and a Single Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for Two Congenitally Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisors and a Right Canine

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Uncovering

This treatment demonstrates the extraction of a deciduous maxillary right lateral incisor and its replacement with a 4.5 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant adjacent to a congenitally missing canine, as well as bone grafting with SynthoGraft™ in the area of a congenitally missing maxillary left lateral incisor. The placement, six months later, of a 4.5 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant in the area of the maxillary right lateral incisor is also shown, as well as the uncovering of the two implants, their full-arch implant-level transfer impression, and their restoration with a two-unit and a single Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC).

Implant-Level Impression, Laboratory Fabrication, and Insertion of a Full-Arch Maxillary Telescopic TRINIA® Prosthesis on Three Universal Abutments and Retentive Copings in Only Two Restorative Visits

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, SHORT® Implants

This treatment demonstrates the full-arch implant-level impression, laboratory fabrication, and insertion of a full-arch maxillary telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis supported by only two 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants, and one 5.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant in only two clinical visits, with a chairside reline of the prosthesis and using three prefabricated Retentive Copings.

17-Year Follow Up for Two Immediately Loaded Maxillary Central Incisors

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Immediate Stabilization and Function, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Surgical

This case demonstrates the extraction of two failed endodontically-treated maxillary central incisors, the immediate surgical placement and stabilization of two 5.0 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants, and their subsequent restoration with two Integrated Abutment Crowns™ (IACs). This case also includes 6-year and 17-year follow-up radiographs and clinical images demonstrating not only impressive long-term bone maintenance, but also superior gingival aesthetics that last.

Removal of a Traumatically Fractured Maxillary Left Central Incisor and the Immediate Loading of a 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with a Universal Abutment for a Nineteen-Year-Old Female Patient

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Immediate Stabilization and Function, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical

This treatment demonstrates the removal of a maxillary left central incisor six days after its being traumatically fractured, and the immediate loading of a 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with a 5 Series Tall Profile Universal Abutment and a prosthetically-bonded, stabilizing temporary crown for a nineteen-year-old female patient.

Two-Stage Placement of Two 4.5 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants with Bone Grafting of Thin Ridges Using Collagen Membranes, SynthoGraft™, and Autogenous Bone

Posted on in SHORT® Implants

This treatment demonstrates the placement of two 4.5 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants with Collagen Membranes, SynthoGraft™, and autogenous bone for the grafting of a right thin ridge with a dehiscence and a left thin ridge without a dehiscence.

Three-Year Radiographic Evaluation of the Placement of a 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant Without Grafting and With Subsequent Bone Gain

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, SHORT® Implants

Radiographs of a 72-year-old male’s treatment demonstrate the placement of a 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant without grafting and with subsequent bone gain after 34 months. The restoration of the mandibular right central incisor features a 19.5mm-long Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) with a Crown-to-Implant Ratio (CIR) of 3.25 to 1.

25-Year Follow Up for a Single Canine Bicon Implant

Posted on in Porcelain Fused to Metal, Restorative

This long-term case study demonstrates the restoration of a failed endodontically-treated canine with a single Bicon implant with eight-year, fourteen-year, and twenty-five-year post insertion follow-up evaluations. Although we have added new restorative options over the years and our implants have become much shorter, these techniques are still used today and showcase the simplicity of restoring a Bicon implant, as if it were a natural tooth. This case also exemplifies the long-term performance and excellent bone maintenance of Bicon over a twenty-five-year period.

Two-Stage Placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant for a Maxillary Left Second Premolar and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical, Two Stage, Uncovering

This treatment demonstrates the two-stage placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant for a maxillary left second premolar, the making of its full arch implant-level transfer impression, and its restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC).
