Dear Colleagues:

Since 1985, Bicon’s procedures and techniques have been successfully utilized by clinicians throughout the world. We welcome the opportunity to teach you about the Bicon System, as we have taught your colleagues, so that you too can provide your patients with the exceptional benefits of the Bicon System.

Clinicians for whom the Bicon system is a new experience should be impressed with the flexibility, forgivingness and facility with which Bicon implants can be placed and restored — even in very challenging clinical situations.

Bicon’s beneficial surgical attributes include: sub-crestal placement of implants, harvesting of bone with slow-speed osteotomy preparation without irrigation, and the use of narrow and SHORT® implants to avoid vital structures. These clinical benefits are directly related to the implant’s elegant plateaued design, which provides cortical-like bone with central vascular systems around the implant. This cortical-like bone not only grows faster, but also provides for functionally different capabilities than the appositional bone around non-plateaued implants. The implant’s sloping shoulder provides sufficient space for the interproximal papillae, which are crucial for gingivally aesthetic restorations. The implant’s 1.5° locking taper connection provides for 360° of universal abutment positioning and has also been definitively proven to be bacterially sealed. Since its introduction in 1985, the Bicon design has benefited from a sensible biological width, which is only now—some 30 years later—being promoted as platform switching.

Hopefully, through attending our courses and learning about Bicon, you and your patients will enjoy the many benefits of the Bicon system, such as never again having to apologize for a dark metallic gum line even when an implant is less than ideally positioned.

 

Sincerely,

Vincent J. Morgan, D.M.D.
