25-Year Follow Up for a Single Canine Bicon Implant

Posted on in Porcelain Fused to Metal, Restorative

This long-term case study demonstrates the restoration of a failed endodontically-treated canine with a single Bicon implant with eight-year, fourteen-year, and twenty-five-year post insertion follow-up evaluations. Although we have added new restorative options over the years and our implants have become much shorter, these techniques are still used today and showcase the simplicity of restoring a Bicon implant, as if it were a natural tooth. This case also exemplifies the long-term performance and excellent bone maintenance of Bicon over a twenty-five-year period.
