NEW! One-Stage Placement of Two Adjacent 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants for Mandibular Premolars

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the planning and one-stage placement of two adjacent 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implants for a 66-year-old male patient. The countersinking of the osteotomies to prevent inadvertent drifting of the reamers, and the use of Guide Pins, Paralleling Pins, Bone Expanders, and Hand Reamers as guides during osteotomy preparation are also demonstrated.

NEW! One-Stage Immediate Placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a Mandibular Molar

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the planning, osteotomy preparation, and one-stage immediate placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a mandibular molar. Additionally, the countersinking of the osteotomy to facilitate the seating of the temporary abutment is demonstrated.

NEW! Two-Stage Implant Placement for a Congenitally Missing Maxillary Premolar

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, osteotomy preparation, and two-stage placement of a 4.5 x 6.0mm SHORT® Implant for a congenitally missing maxillary premolar for a 26-year-old female patient. In addition to Latch Reamers, Hand Reamers with a Threaded Instrument Adapter were used for the preparation of the osteotomy, which offers better control — especially in thin bone.

NEW! Immediate Placement of a Maxillary Lateral Incisor

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, extraction, osteotomy preparation, and immediate placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm implant with a 2.5mm well for a maxillary lateral incisor. Additionally, the technique of changing the Pilot Drill trajectory while drilling on a slope is demonstrated. This technique facilitates ideal implant placement. For the preparation of the osteotomy, Hand Reamers were used with a Threaded Instrument Adapter, which offers better control — especially in thin bone.

NEW! Bicon SHORT® Implants and TRINIA® on Three

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

In this video, Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. discusses the revolutionary TRINIA® on Three technique and its long-term results. After experiencing over six years of reliable results with full-arch TRINIA® prostheses supported by four SHORT® Implants, he decided to modify the study design in 2016 to follow full-arch TRINIA® prostheses supported by only three 4.0 x 5.0mm SHORT® Implants. He attributes their success to the exceptional clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants and the unique properties of the non-rigid metal-free TRINIA® CAD/CAM material.

Two-Stage Placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm Maxillary Canine Implant and its Restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC)

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies, Techniques

This case study and technique video demonstrates the case planning, osteotomy preparation, and placement of a 4.0 x 8.0mm implant with a 2.5mm well in a maxillary canine site using a collagen membrane and SynthoGraft™ bone grafting procedure. After four months of healing, its uncovering, implant-level impression, and restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) are shown. Additionally, the modification of the adjacent 15-year-old lateral incisor IAC to improve gingival aesthetics is demonstrated.

Inserting a Maxillary TRINIA® Prosthesis

Posted on in Case Studies, Techniques

This case study video demonstrates the insertion of five Bicon Universal Abutments and a maxillary telescopic TRINIA® prosthesis with the resin cementation of five Retentive Copings within the passive bores of the prosthesis — all within a 30-minute office visit.

Materials for Long Span Implant-Supported Reconstructions: An Alternative to Existing Survival Issues

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

In this video, Dr. Estevam Bonfante, DDS, MS, Ph.D. of University of São Paulo, Bauru College of Dentistry, Department of Prosthodontics discusses the challenges of current restorative materials for both short and long-span prostheses, as well as a classification system for all-ceramic and ceramic-like materials and the EAO 2018 conclusions about the unacceptable fracture rates of ceramics. Dr. Bonfante concludes that there is not only an opportunity, but also a real need for novel metal-free restorative materials such as TRINIA®, a fiber-reinforced CAD/CAM material.
