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.

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.
