“I have been placing Bicon implants since 1997, and love their simplicity and reliability. I’ve been using the Bicon SHORT® Implant since it first came out in the UK. Although I am experienced in all types of bone grafting for dental implants, this SHORT® Implant frequently allows my patients to avoid the need for any grafting at all. I have to worry less and less about sinuses and nerves as the SHORT® Implant allows me to stay well away from them—patient acceptance for implant treatment soars when you don’t have to tell them about bone grafts!”

Bill Schaeffer | Oral Surgeon • London, United Kingdom

“Referring general dental practitioners have found that the simplicity of the restorative phase and decreased costs of this system has now made implant dentistry much more accessible to their patients. As a result, referrals have increased and implant dentistry is playing a bigger role in general dental practice.”

Alan Sidi | Periodontist • London, United Kingdom

“Having placed and restored other implant systems for ten years, with all the complexities and costs involved, I thank the day I was introduced to the Bicon system. The design of the implant makes for ease in surgical placement and the abutments afford unsurpassed restorative flexibility. My referrals have increased tremendously, my patients are happier and accept implants as standard practice and the growth in this aspect of the practice has been substantial. The support from the people at Bicon has been impressive; they are energetic and truly supportive. In fact all the people I’ve met who use Bicon have had nothing but praise for the system.”

Geoffrey Pullen | General Dentist • London, United Kingdom

“With over 25 years of experience, I enjoy the challenge of performing bone augmentation procedures when the necessity arises. However, my patients are often not so eager to undergo grafting procedures — and their reluctance can be a roadblock to successful implant treatments. With the advent of Bicon’s 6.0mm SHORT® Implants, I have been able to treatment plan many cases as routine implant placements without grafting with its additional expense for my patients. The Bicon SHORT® Implant greatly increases case acceptance and has allowed me to place many more implants without reservations about their success.”

Joseph Leary | Periodontist • Norwood, MA

“Bicon implants have changed my practicing life. Out go screws, torque drivers and an expensive multiplicity of special tools and now, with the Bicon IAC, ™ preps and cementation. In comes conventional prosthetics, separate units, normal restorative instrumentation. The cost of implants to patients is now the same as bridgework, so the fee acceptance is not a problem. As the people at Bicon say, “Simple. The way it was meant to be.”

Clive Debenham | General Dentist • London, United Kingdom

“I have been placing dental implants since 1982, and I have been a Bicon customer since 1996. Since 1997, I have successfully used the 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant in cases that would have required grafting procedures and, in some instances, even nerve repositioning. The Bicon SHORT® Implant provides implant treatment for patients who otherwise may not have gone forward with their treatments.”

Clarence C. Lindquist | Oral Surgeon • Washington, D.C.

“Due to the ease of restorability of this system, my general dental colleagues have at last found an implant that takes the intimidation factor out of restoring implant retained prosthetics. As a result, we are seeing an ever increasing number of implant consultations and implant surgeries. We are, in fact, seeing referrals an ever increasing number of practitioners who did not normally refer to us.”

Joal D. Camelio | Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon • Attleboro Falls, MA

"The Bicon Dental Implant System is fabulous. Its simplicity and decreased costs have pleased our referring dentists and their patients. Consequently, our implant case load has improved dramatically.”

Robert S. Johnson | Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon • St. Petersburg, FL

"I initially did not venture into implants because of the technical problems with the attachments and abutments of others systems. However, Bicon’s prosthetic end is clean, easy, and quick.
Conventional dental skills are all that are required to fabricate a prosthesis. No screws or special wrenches are needed. The simplicity of the system has had an enormous impact on the cost of implants to patients. Despite the fact that the Bicon design has remained unchanged since 1985, this really is the next generation of implantology. Bicon has taught me how to do implants. They can teach you as well.”

John Rhicard | General Dentist • South Hedley, MA

“I have worked with dental implants everyday of my professional career since 1974. When I started using the Bicon Dental Implant in 1986, I noticed a definite increase in case success along with more versitility of prosthetic design. When an entire practice depends upon the success of dental implants, it is reassuring to know a product like Bicon exists.”

Albert Kurpis | Prosthodontist • New York, NY

“I have used the Bicon Implant System since 1986. I have placed over 1,000 implants and have lost only four; this implant has made this procedure the most successful thing we do in our practice....I wish to thank Tom Driskell for inventing the implant and Bicon for continuing to evolve it....I wish all dentistry could be as gratifying.”

Donald Rothenberg | General Dentist • Marblehead, MA
