Recently, more than 22 years later, we were pleasantly surprised to hear that clinicians around the world still refer to it today. Following a brief introduction by Dr. Vincent J. Morgan, we present this historical video — refreshed and digitized in high definition.

All the Things I Can Only Do with Bicon Implants

Posted on in Introductory, Case Studies

In this video, Dr. John Morgan shares his thoughts on why the Bicon Dental Implant is sometimes the only implant system he can use for certain cases and discusses five primary situations where Bicon truly shines for him. He is an oral surgeon in private practice and has been using the Bicon system for over twenty years. He also uses multiple different implant systems for his referral base but is frequently asked why he prefers Bicon. Dr. John Morgan is Board Certified with the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. He is also a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery at the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine.

The Bicon System and Indexing

Posted on in Introductory

In this video, Dr. Drauseo Speratti discusses why the Bicon System does not require indexing. Since the Bicon locking taper implant-to-abutment connection universally provides for 360˚ of abutment positioning, it is not dependent on the timing of a screw or hex.

The History of The Bicon Design

Posted on in Introductory

The Bicon System has its origins dating back to 1968. Initial research was conducted at Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, Ohio by Thomas Driskell. The original implant design of Mr. Driskell used high density aluminum oxide as the implant material. In 1981, Driskell introduced an implant named Titanodont which was made from titanium alloy. Then, in 1985, he perfected his titanium implant design by patenting the DB Precision Implant, which is known today as the Bicon Dental Implant System. Whether Driskell knew it or not at the time he developed this implant system, his design coupled with the clinical support of Bicon has come to revolutionize implant dentistry by offering the innovations of SHORT® Implants, Integrated Abutment Crowns™, SynthoGraft™, and TRINIA® and more.
