NEW! The Internal Sinus Lift with SynthoGraft® – Dr. Shadi Daher [HD]

Posted on in Webcast Replays, Introductory, Scientific Lectures

On June 6, 2020, Shadi Daher, DMD, FICD, AAOMS Fellow, presented a live webcast discussing internal sinus lifts with SynthoGraft®, a synthetic bone augmentation material. In his presentation, Dr. Daher discussed the anatomy, histology, instrumentation, and clinical techniques of several representative clinical treatments with their long-term radiographic results.

SynthoGraft® is a revolutionary Beta-Tricalcium Phosphate material that offers a unique structure that provides initial stability, while its nanometer-scale porosity allows for rapid vascularization and subsequent resorption when mixed with the patient’s own blood.

Unmatched Clinical Capabilities of TRINIA® – Drs. Vincent J. Morgan and Estevam Bonfante [HD]

Posted on in Webcast Replays, Introductory, Scientific Lectures

On May 27, 2020, Vincent J. Morgan, DMD, and Estevam Bonfante, DDS, MS, Ph. D, co-presented a live webcast discussing TRINIA®, a metal-free ceramic matrix CAD/CAM material.

During the first portion, Dr. Morgan introduces TRINIA® as a fiber-reinforced resin with exceptional clinical capabilities and unique properties, which has been successfully used as a dental CAD/CAM material for over ten years.

In the second portion, Dr. Bonfante of The University of São Paulo, Bauru College of Dentistry, Department of Prosthodontics, discusses the challenges of current restorative materials for both short and long-span prostheses and the conclusions of the EAO’s 2018 consensus report, about the unacceptable fracture rates of ceramics. Dr. Bonfante concludes that there is not only an opportunity but also a real need for novel metal-free CAD/CAM restorative materials such as TRINIA®.

During the conclusion, Dr. Morgan presents multiple real-world clinical cases exemplifying TRINIA’s unmatched clinical capabilities and its potential to revolutionize restorative dentistry. He demonstrates that with TRINIA®, patient satisfaction can be achieved with less time, fewer clinical appointments, greater flexibility, and significant financial benefits for both you and your patients.

The Logic of Bicon – Dr. Vincent J. Morgan [HD]

Posted on in Webcast Replays, Introductory, Scientific Lectures

On May 6, 2020, Dr. Vincent J. Morgan presented a live webcast discussing the driving principles behind the Bicon design: simplicity, predictability, profitability — and most importantly the logic! Whether you are new to Bicon or have been using Bicon for years, his presentation is not to be missed.

One-Stage Placement of Two Adjacent 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants for Mandibular Premolars

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the planning and one-stage placement of two adjacent 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants for a 66-year-old male patient. The countersinking of the osteotomies to prevent inadvertent drifting of the reamers, and the use of Guide Pins, Paralleling Pins, Bone Expanders, and Hand Reamers as guides during osteotomy preparation are also demonstrated.

One-Stage Immediate Placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a Mandibular Molar

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the planning, osteotomy preparation, and one-stage immediate placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a mandibular molar. Additionally, the countersinking of the osteotomy to facilitate the seating of the temporary abutment is demonstrated.

Two-Stage Implant Placement for a Congenitally Missing Maxillary Premolar

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, osteotomy preparation, and two-stage placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a congenitally missing maxillary premolar for a 26-year-old female patient. In addition to Latch Reamers, Hand Reamers with a Threaded Instrument Adapter were used for the preparation of the osteotomy, which offers better control — especially in thin bone.

Immediate Placement of a Maxillary Lateral Incisor

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, extraction, osteotomy preparation, and immediate placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm implant with a 2.5mm well for a maxillary lateral incisor. Additionally, the technique of changing the Pilot Drill trajectory while drilling on a slope is demonstrated. This technique facilitates ideal implant placement. For the preparation of the osteotomy, Hand Reamers were used with a Threaded Instrument Adapter, which offers better control — especially in thin bone.

Two-Stage Placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm Maxillary Canine Implant and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, osteotomy preparation, and placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm implant with a 2.5mm well in a maxillary canine site using a collagen membrane and SynthoGraft™ bone grafting procedure. After four months of healing, its uncovering, implant-level impression, and restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) are shown. Additionally, the modification of the adjacent 15-year-old lateral incisor IAC to improve gingival aesthetics is demonstrated.

Bicon Dental Implants Roundtable 1997 [HD]

Posted on in Introductory

In 1997, Bicon released a roundtable discussion video. This video featured a frank and open discussion among clinicians sharing their real-world experiences with the Bicon system. Recently, more than 22 years later, we were pleasantly surprised to hear that clinicians around the world still refer to it today. Following a brief introduction by Dr. Vincent J. Morgan, we present this historical video — refreshed and digitized in high definition.

Two Stage Placement, Uncovering, and Restoration of a Mandibular Posterior 4.5 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study video provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamental Bicon surgical and restorative techniques for a missing mandibular first molar. It demonstrates the two-stage placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant, subsequent uncovering, implant-level transfer impression, crown insertion, and final restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC). In addition, five-month follow-up images are provided.
