The Insertion of Two Contiguous Implants into a Mandibular Bone Void Using Sinus Lift Abutments with SynthoGraft®, and Their Subsequent Restoration with Two Integrated Abutment Crowns™

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, SHORT® Implants

This treatment demonstrates the insertion of a 4.0 x 6.0mm implant and a 4.5 x 6.0mm implant into two contiguous mandibular osteotomies, which communicated with each other because of a bone void. After preparation of the implant osteotomies through the crest of cortical bone, the soft tissue content of the bone void was thoroughly removed from the bony walls of the defect with a spoon excavator prior to filling the defect with a putty-like consistency of the patient’s blood and SynthoGraft®, a pure-phase beta-tricalcium phosphate. A sinus lift abutment was used to prevent the implants from being displaced into the defect. Subsequently, the implants were restored with Universal Abutments and Integrated Abutment Crowns (IACs).

Insertion of a Two-Unit TRINIA® Prosthesis to Replace an Ill-Fitting Prosthesis

Posted on in Porcelain Fused to Metal

This treatment demonstrates the insertion of a two-unit TRINIA® prosthesis for maxillary central incisor implants in a 71-year-old male, who presented with an ill-fitting, splinted Porcelain-Fused-to-Metal (PFM) prosthesis.

Immediate Loading of Three Maxillary Implants with a Winged TRINIA® Transitional Prosthesis

Posted on in General, Immediate Placement, Surgical

This treatment demonstrates the technique of immediately loading two 4.0 x 6.0mm implants and one 5.0 x 5.0mm implant by using a winged TRINIA® transitional prosthesis and one existing 4.5 x 8.0mm implant.

Insertion of a TRINIA® Telescopic Prosthesis

Posted on in Overdentures, Restorative

This treatment demonstrates the insertion of a TRINIA® telescopic restoration on five non-parallel implants for a 70-year-old woman, who previously had a four-implant-retained o-ring overdenture.

Guided Bone Regeneration Technique and Implant Placement in an atrophic mandibular first molar site

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

This treatment offers an alternative to ridge splitting procedures, demonstrating the molar implant placement and simultaneous guided bone regeneration of a 56-year-old woman’s atrophic left mandible. Because of the very thin and dense crestal bone, a high-speed drill was used to initiate the osteotomy prior to the successive use of latch and hand reamers, and the placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm implant, which was covered with SynthoGraft™ within a collagen membrane pocket. The 5-year post-insertion clinical and radiographic images reveal a successful treatment with significant bone gain.

Immediate Placement and Restoration of a Maxillary First Molar with an Extra-Orally Cemented E-Max Crown

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Restorative, Surgical

This case demonstrates the extraction of a maxillary first molar and the immediate placement of a 6.0 x 6.0mm implant. Additionally, three different impression techniques are presented: implant-level transfer impression, abutment-level transfer impression, and digitally scanned impression flag. Furthermore, the extra-oral cementation of an E-max (lithium disilicate) crown is demonstrated.

Insertion and Relining of a Maxillary Telescopic TRINIA™ Prosthesis

Posted on in Restorative, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the insertion of a maxillary full arch telescopic restoration with two conventional telescopic copings with yellow retentive inserts and two milled titanium copings on four implants, one of which is badly positioned.

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.

A Comprehensive Laboratory Technique for the Fabrication of a Six-Implant TRINIA™ Prosthesis for an Atrophic Maxilla of a Teenage Cancer Survivor

Posted on in Uncategorized

This case demonstrates the life-changing capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants and TRINIA™ metal-free fiber-reinforced resin CAD/CAM restorative material. Despite the significant clinical challenges of a small mouth, the limited vertical dimension of occlusion, and the reduced vascularity of her atrophic irradiated maxillary alveolar bone, four 4.0 x 6.0mm and two 3.0 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants were able to be placed and restored with a TRINIA™ telescopic prosthesis. Laboratory solutions for minimal available space are presented, which demonstrate the unmatched clinical and restorative capabilities of the Bicon SHORT® Implants and TRINIA™ to provide meaningful treatments for enhancing the quality of life of deserving patients.
