NEW! My Journey from Augmentation to TRINIA®, a Non-Rigid Metal-Free CAD/CAM Material

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

Join Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. on his journey with TRINIA®, a fiber-reinforced resin CAD/CAM material, as his views evolved over time — from using and enjoying multiple bone grafting techniques to avoiding grafting completely by using a non-rigid material and shorter implants. He examines how TRINIA® can further expand the clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants — on four, three, and even one implant. After nine years of real-world experience and multiple long-term clinical studies, Prof. DDr. Ewers concludes that “less is more”!

NEW! Bicon Dental Implants Roundtable 1997 [HD]

Posted on in Introductory

In 1997, Bicon released a roundtable discussion video. This video featured a frank and open discussion among clinicians sharing their real-world experiences with the Bicon system. 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.

My Evolving Views on Bicon SHORT® Implants After Using Them Extensively for Eight Years – Prof. DDr. Rolf Ewers [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

Please join Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. on his journey with Bicon SHORT® Implants as his views have evolved over time — from initial disbelief to using them extensively for over eight years. Prof. DDr. Ewers also considers how Bicon’s bacterial seal, double platform switching, screwless locking-taper connection, slow drilling at 50RPM, callus bone healing principle, and Haversian-like bone morphology result in unmatched clinical capabilities. He also examines how TRINIA® metal-free CAD/CAM fiber-reinforced resin material can further expand the clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants. After multiple long-term clinical studies, Prof. DDr. Ewers concludes that maybe “less is more”.

Short Implants: A Reliable Treatment Option? – Dr. Frank Kistler [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Dr. Frank Kistler as he discusses the primary issues today in Implantology — aesthetics, acceleration, long-term stability, efficiency, and simplicity — and how short implants can help address those issues. Dr. Kistler also makes an important distinction between “success rates” and “complication rates”.

A Three-Year Retrospective Clinical and Radiographic Study of Short Implants – Prof. Giorgio Lombardo [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Prof. Giorgio Lombardo as he presents his scientific study of short implants supporting single crown restorations in posterior severely resorbed jaws. Prof. Lombardo also discusses risk predictors for peri-implantitis.

Why I Need the Unmatched Clinical Capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants – Prof. Dr. Dr. Rolf Ewers [HD]

Posted on in Scientific Lectures

IDC-Italy presents the 1st European Forum On Short Implants at the Teatro Comunale di Ferrara in Ferrara, Italy. Please join Rolf Ewers, MD, DMD, Ph.D. for his unique perspective on why he needs the clinical capabilities of Bicon SHORT® Implants — in his words, “…the best augmentation methods and materials may be no augmentation. Less is more!”

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.
