17-Year Follow Up for Two Immediately Loaded Maxillary Central Incisors

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Immediate Stabilization and Function, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Surgical

This case demonstrates the extraction of two failed endodontically-treated maxillary central incisors, the immediate surgical placement and stabilization of two 5.0 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants, and their subsequent restoration with two Integrated Abutment Crowns™ (IACs). This case also includes 6-year and 17-year follow-up radiographs and clinical images demonstrating not only impressive long-term bone maintenance, but also superior gingival aesthetics that last.

Three-Year Radiographic Evaluation of the Placement of a 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant Without Grafting and With Subsequent Bone Gain

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, SHORT® Implants

Radiographs of a 72-year-old male’s treatment demonstrate the placement of a 4.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant without grafting and with subsequent bone gain after 34 months. The restoration of the mandibular right central incisor features a 19.5mm-long Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) with a Crown-to-Implant Ratio (CIR) of 3.25 to 1.

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.

Replacement of an Eighteen-Year-Old O-Ring-Retained Mandibular Overdenture with a Telescopic TRINIA® Prosthesis with Custom Cast Copings in Three Clinical Visits

Posted on in Overdentures, Telescopic Restorations

This treatment demonstrates the use of Gothic Arch tracing to record the patient’s centric occlusal relation, as well as the clinical techniques for the insertion of a mandibular telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis with custom cast chrome cobalt copings.

Restoration of Three Immediately Placed and Loaded 4.5 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants and a Single One-Stage Placement in the Anterior Maxilla with a Twelve-Year Follow-Up

Posted on in Immediate Placement, Immediate Stabilization and Function, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, One Stage, Restorative, SHORT® Implants, Surgical

This treatment demonstrates the one-stage placement of one 4.5 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with a collagen membrane and the immediate placement and loading of three 4.5 x 8.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implants. Also shown is their initial restoration with four Integrated Abutment Crowns™ (IACs), as well as their subsequent restoration of new IACs with wider hemispherical bases eleven years later and an evaluation twelve years after the initial implant placements.

Replacement of 25-Year-Old Maxillary and Mandibular O-Ring Relined Overdentures with Telescopic TRINIA® Prostheses

Posted on in Overdentures, Restorative, Telescopic Restorations

This case demonstrates the clinical and laboratory techniques and procedures for the replacement of two twenty-five-year-old tissue-borne overdentures with a telescopic maxillary implant-borne prosthesis on four implants and a telescopic mandibular implant-borne prosthesis on only two implants with 24mm and 21mm cantilevers.

Nine-Year Follow-Up and CBCT Imaging of 24 Bicon SHORT® Implants and Integrated Abutment Crowns™ (IACs)

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, SHORT® Implants

This case demonstrates the nine-year follow-up, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging, and intraoral polishing of twenty-four Bicon SHORT® Implants and their individual Integrated Abutment Crowns™ (IACs).

Extraction and Immediate Placement of a 3.0 x 8.0mm Bicon NARROW™ Implant for a Mandibular Central Incisor and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™

Posted on in Extraction, Immediate Placement, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative, Surgical, Uncovering

This case demonstrates the insertion, restoration, and interdental papillae maturation of a 3.0 x 8.0mm Bicon NARROW™ Implant for a mandibular right central incisor over the course of a two-year period. This case also demonstrates the use of a hand reamer attached to a hand reamer extender.

Congenitally Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implant Placement on a Seventeen-Year-Old Female

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™

With radiographic and clinical images, this case demonstrates the successful implant restoration of a congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for a seventeen-year-old female, and the subsequent 2.0mm intraoral lengthening of the IAC when she was twenty-five years old to compensate for the continued eruption of her natural teeth over the period of eight years.

Congenitally Missing Maxillary Lateral Incisor Implant Placement on a Fifteen-Year-Old Male

Posted on in Integrated Abutment Crowns™, Restorative

With radiographic and clinical images, this case demonstrates the successful implant restoration of a congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisor with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) for a fifteen-year-old male, and the subsequent 2.0mm intraoral lengthening of the IAC when he was twenty-two years old to compensate for the continued eruption of his natural teeth over a period of seven years.
