NEW! Twelve-Year Radiographic Follow Up of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with an Internal Sinus Lift Using SynthoGraft™ and an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, SHORT® Implants, Sinus Lifts

This case radiographically demonstrates the extraction, implant placement of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with an internal sinus lift using SynthoGraft™, and restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for a fourty-six-year-old male patient over twelve years. It is also an excellent radiographic example of Wolff’s Law of bone, which states that “bone will adapt to the loads under which it is placed …and become stronger” — form follows function!

Seven-Year Radiographic Follow Up of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant Using a Sinus Lift Abutment and an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Extraction, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Sinus Lifts

This case radiographically demonstrates the extraction, implant placement of a 6.0 x 5.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with a Sinus Lift Abutment, and its restoration with a 20mm long Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) in a sixty-nine-year-old male patient over 84 months. It is also an excellent radiographic example of Wolff’s Law of bone, which states that “bone will adapt to the loads under which it is placed …and become stronger” — form follows function!

One-Stage Immediate Placement of a Bicon SHORT® Implant Using a Scannable Temporary Abutment for the Restoration of a Mandibular Incisor in Only Two Clinical Visits

Posted on in Immediate Placement, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, One Stage, SHORT® Implants

This case demonstrates the extraction of a mandibular lower left central incisor, the one-stage immediate placement of a 3.5 x 8.0mm SHORT® Implant with a 4-Series Scannable Temporary Abutment with a 2.0mm post, digital impression scanning, temporization with a TRINIA® prosthesis, and the insertion of an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for a 72-year-old male patient in only two clinical visits!

Three-Year Evaluation of a Full-Arch Maxillary TRINIA® Telescopic Restoration Supported by Only Three 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants

Posted on in SHORT® Implants

This case demonstrates the successful use of only three 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants using custom cast copings with Si-Tec inserts for the support of a full-arch TRINIA® telescopic restoration, which received a chairside reline with pink-colored Ceramage four months after its initial insertion for a seventy-six-year-old female patient.

Restoration of Two Maxillary Incisor SHORT® Implants with a Three-Unit TRINIA Bridge Using Scannable Temporary Abutments in Two Restorative Visits

Posted on in SHORT® Implants

This case demonstrates the use of two 5 Series Tall (5T) Scannable Temporary Abutments to digitally record an implant-level impression of two 4.0 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants for the fabrication of a three-unit TRINIA® maxillary incisor bridge, and its insertion using a resin seating jig prior to being cemented in only two restorative visits.

Extraction of Five Mandibular Teeth, Placement of Four 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants and Three 2.5 x 8.0mm Tall Profile (TP) Fixed-Detachable Transitional Implants, and Insertion of an Immediately Loaded Full-Arch Screw-Retained TRINIA® Prosthesis

Posted on in SHORT® Implants

This case demonstrates a protocol and nuances for extractions, intra-foraminal placements of four SHORT® Implants and three TP Fixed-Detachable Transitional Implants, and immediate loading of the Transitional Implants with a full-arch TRINIA® prosthesis using a Gothic arch tracing technique, for the atrophic mandible of a sixty-six-year-old female patient in only three clinical visits.

Placement and Immediate Loading with a Mandibular Full-Arch TRINIA® Prosthesis of Four Fixed-Detachable Universal Abutment Transitional Implants

Posted on in Bridges, Fixed, Immediate Stabilization and Function, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical, Two Stage

This case demonstrates the placement of two 4.0 x 6.0mm and two 4.0 x 8.0mm Standard Profile Fixed-Detachable Universal Abutment Transitional Implants using guided surgery and their immediate loading with a mandibular full-arch screw-retained TRINIA® prosthesis with cemented copings within the bores of the TRINIA® prosthesis, subsequent to the placement of four Bicon SHORT® Implants also using guided surgery for their 2.0mm pilot osteotomies.

Fabrication and Insertion of an Extra-Orally Cemented Zirconia Crown on a Custom Abutment Digitally Designed and Milled from a Bicon Abutment Blank

Posted on in SHORT® Implants

This case demonstrates the simple and straightforward technique for restoring a maxillary molar with a Bicon SHORT® Implant and a digitally-designed Zirconia crown using Bicon’s Universal Abutment Blank to mill a custom abutment. Since Bicon’s unique locking taper allows for crowns to be cemented extra-orally, extraneous cement can be completely avoided.

NOTE: First orders will begin shipping in May 2021.

Two Full-Arch TRINIA® Telescopic Restorations Featuring Seven Implant Placements and the Use of Both Retentive and Custom Cast Copings for a Seventy-Year-Old Patient in Five Clinical Visits

Posted on in Extraction, Fixed, Immediate Placement, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical, Telescopic Restorations, Two Stage, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the extraction of six teeth and the placement of four maxillary implants (two using sinus lift abutments and others using bone grafting procedures with SynthoGraft™ and Bicon Resorbable Collagen Membranes) and three mandibular implants, uncovering of implants and two conventional implant-level transfer impressions, two occlusal bite registrations, insertion of the mandibular TRINIA® restoration with three cemented Retentive Copings on Universal Abutments and the insertion of the maxillary TRINIA® restoration with four custom cast Sci-tec copings on modified Universal Abutments for a seventy-year-old female patient. The entire treatment was achieved in only five clinical visits during a seven-month period without fabricating any new transitional prostheses.
