Materials for Long Span Implant-Supported Reconstructions: An Alternative to Existing Survival Issues

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

In this video, Dr. Estevam Bonfante, DDS, MS, Ph.D. of 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, as well as a classification system for all-ceramic and ceramic-like materials and the EAO 2018 conclusions 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 restorative materials such as TRINIA®, a fiber-reinforced CAD/CAM material.

My Journey from Augmentation to TRINIA®, a Non-Rigid Metal-Free CAD/CAM Material

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

Join Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. on his journey with TRINIA®, a fiber-reinforced resin CAD/CAM material, as his views evolved over time — from using and enjoying multiple bone grafting techniques to avoiding grafting completely by using a non-rigid material and shorter implants. He examines how TRINIA® can further expand the clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants — on four, three, and even one implant. After nine years of real-world experience and multiple long-term clinical studies, Prof. DDr. Ewers concludes that “less is more”!

My Evolving Views on Bicon SHORT® Implants After Using Them Extensively for Eight Years – Prof. DDr. Rolf Ewers [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

Please join Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. on his journey with Bicon SHORT® Implants as his views have evolved over time — from initial disbelief to using them extensively for over eight years. Prof. DDr. Ewers also considers how Bicon’s bacterial seal, double platform switching, screwless locking-taper connection, slow drilling at 50RPM, callus bone healing principle, and Haversian-like bone morphology result in unmatched clinical capabilities. He also examines how TRINIA® metal-free CAD/CAM fiber-reinforced resin material can further expand the clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants. After multiple long-term clinical studies, Prof. DDr. Ewers concludes that maybe “less is more”.

Short Implants: A Reliable Treatment Option? – Dr. Frank Kistler [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Dr. Frank Kistler as he discusses the primary issues today in Implantology — aesthetics, acceleration, long-term stability, efficiency, and simplicity — and how short implants can help address those issues. Dr. Kistler also makes an important distinction between “success rates” and “complication rates”.

Clinical and Research Experience with Bicon SHORT® Implants – Dr. Rainier Urdaneta [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Dr. Rainier Urdaneta as he presents scientific evidence of bone maintenance — and bone gain — with Bicon SHORT® Implants. Dr. Urdaneta also discusses multivariate factors associated with bone gain and presents long-term Bicon SHORT® Implant case results.

SHORT® Implants vs. Zygomatic Implants – Dr. Tom de Wit [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Dr. Tom de Wit for his lecture on short implants and their comparison to zygomatic implants, and how he came to prefer the minimally invasive option provided by short implants.

Bicon SHORT® Implants, TRINIA, and Telescopic Restorations – Paolo Perpetuini [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Join the master himself — Paolo Perpetuini — for his presentation on why Bicon SHORT® Implants, TRINIA CAD/CAM material, and telescopic restorations can provide the ideal combination for both you and your patients.

Why I Need the Unmatched Clinical Capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants – Prof. Dr. Dr. Rolf Ewers [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. for his unique perspective on why he needs the clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants — in his words, “…the best augmentation methods and materials may be no augmentation. Less is more!”

Case Report on Sinus Lifts and Bicon SHORT® Implants – Dr. Alexey Ushakov [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. This video features a presentation by Dr. Alexey Ushakov, sharing his real-world experience in placing over 5,000 Bicon implants — over 2,000 of which were placed with internal sinus lifts. He also shares his practical knowledge in addressing sinus membrane perforations.
