Extraction of a Maxillary Left First Premolar and its Replacement with a SHORT® 4.5 x 6.0mm Implant, and Grafting with LPRF, Collagen Membranes, and SynthoGraft™, a pure phase beta tricalcium phosphate

Posted on in Extraction, Integrated Abutment Crowns™

This case demonstrates the extraction of a maxillary left first premolar and its replacement with a SHORT® 4.5 x 6.0mm implant using SynthoGraft™, Leukocyte and Platelet Rich Fibrin (LPRF), and collagen membranes. The osteotomy was carefully prepared using latch and hand reamers in 0.5mm increments despite a buccal bone perforation.

Restoration of a Maxillary Left First Molar with an Abutment-Level Transfer Impression

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the process of fabricating an abutment-level transfer impression and a transitional crown with a 5L Universal Abutment after uncovering the implant in the area of the maxillary left first molar.

Fabrication and Insertion of a Four-Implant Mandibular Full Arch TRINIA™ Telescopic Prosthesis with Two Lithium Disilicate Crowns to Resist Abrasion of Composite Denture Teeth Against Opposing Maxillary Porcelain Restorations

Posted on in Surgical, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the fabrication of a four-implant mandibular full arch TRINIA™ telescopic prosthesis, beginning with the making of an implant-level transfer impression and bite registration, followed by the laboratory fabrication of a soft tissue model with four Universal abutments prosthetic posts with two to three degrees of parallelism; a light-cured resin verification jig with milled retentive copings to confirm both a path of insertion and retentiveness of the intended TRINIA™ prosthesis; a light-cured resin seating jig to facilitate the orientation and initial seating of the four Universal abutments intra-orally; and two lithium disilicate molar crowns to preserve the patient’s vertical dimension of the occlusion, by resisting the abrasion of the composite denture teeth against the patient’s maxillary porcelain restorations. Finally, three red retentive copings and one metallic non-retentive coping, which were seated on the Universal abutments, were intra-orally cemented into the bores of the mandibular full arch TRINIA™ prosthesis to provide the patient with a functionally stable and aesthetic restoration.

Placement and Restoration of a 3.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant in a Seemingly Impossible Clinical Situation

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

This case demonstrates three years of remarkable healing and clinical capabilities of a Bicon implant which was restored with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) in a seventy-two-year-old male patient. Due to a variety of extenuating circumstances, a 3.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant was immediately placed with a significant amount of SynthoGraft™, a pure phase beta tricalcium phosphate material, and a collagen membrane in a seemingly impossible clinical situation after the removal of a fractured and infected mandibular lateral incisor.

Restoration of a Poorly Positioned Maxillary Incisor

Posted on in Porcelain Fused to Metal, Restorative

This case demonstrates how to restore a poorly positioned maxillary anterior implant, which has a trajectory of roughly a 45° angle relative to the long axis of the adjacent teeth.

Restoration of Two Maxillary Premolar SHORT® Implants with Integrated Abutment Crowns™

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative

This case demonstrates the ease and simplicity of restorative visits with Bicon Dental Implants. In addition, this case also demonstrates the three primary ways to rotate a sulcus former and two ways to record an implant-level transfer impression.

Extraction and Immediate Placement of a 3.0 x 8.0mm NARROW™ Implant for a Mandibular Central Incisor and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Surgical, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the insertion, restoration, and interdental papillae maturation of a 3.0 x 8.0mm NARROW™ Implant for a mandibular right central incisor over the course of a two-year period. This case also demonstrates the use of a hand reamer attached to a hand reamer extender.

Restoration of Maxillary and Mandibular Full-Arch Telescopic TRINIA™ Prostheses

Posted on in Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the clinical and laboratory procedures for the fabrication of maxillary and mandibular full-arch telescopic TRINIA™ restorations, each using four Bicon SHORT® Implants and cast chrome cobalt copings with Si-tec TK-FRIC retentive attachments in only three clinical visits.

Congenitally Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implant Placement on a Seventeen-Year-Old Female

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™

With radiographic and clinical images, this case demonstrates the successful implant restoration of a congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for a seventeen-year-old female, and the subsequent 2.0mm intraoral lengthening of the IAC when she was twenty-five years old to compensate for the continued eruption of her natural teeth over the period of eight years.

Insertion of a Fixed Telescopic TRINIA™ CAD/CAM Prosthesis

Posted on in Fixed, Restorative, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the cementation of four telescopic copings into a full-arch maxillary TRINIA™ CAD/CAM prosthesis and its insertion onto four Bicon abutments. The telescopic copings, which are bonded to the prosthesis via Ceraresin® Bond (CRB) by Shofu, are used to realign the abutments to better fit the bores of the prosthesis for both comfort and effective use.
