The Bicon System and Indexing

Posted on in Introductory

In this video, Dr. Drauseo Speratti discusses why the Bicon System does not require indexing. Since the Bicon locking taper implant-to-abutment connection universally provides for 360˚ of abutment positioning, it is not dependent on the timing of a screw or hex.

The History of The Bicon Design

Posted on in Introductory

The Bicon System has its origins dating back to 1968. Initial research was conducted at Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, Ohio by Thomas Driskell. The original implant design of Mr. Driskell used high density aluminum oxide as the implant material. In 1981, Driskell introduced an implant named Titanodont which was made from titanium alloy. Then, in 1985, he perfected his titanium implant design by patenting the DB Precision Implant, which is known today as the Bicon Dental Implant System. Whether Driskell knew it or not at the time he developed this implant system, his design coupled with the clinical support of Bicon has come to revolutionize implant dentistry by offering the innovations of SHORT® Implants, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, SynthoGraft™, and TRINIA® and more.
