Dental Implants

Bicon Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth and wish to eat your favorite foods, increase your chewing ability, and improve your appearance, speech, and self-esteem, then you are a candidate for dental implants. 

A dental implant replaces the root of a missing tooth and is made from surgical-grade titanium alloy to exacting specifications. Initially, the implant is placed into the jawbone either immediately after the loss of a tooth, or after an extended period of time. If there is insufficient bone, various bone enhancing procedures can be performed prior to the implant placement. An abutment, which acts as a base for a prosthetic tooth replacement such as a crown, is inserted into the implant at the time of implant placement, or subsequently after a period of healing.

Why Choose Bicon?
The simple and elegant design of the Bicon implant has a bacterially-sealed connection with the possibility for 360 degrees of universal abutment positioning. The design provides your dentist with the unique clinical flexibility of utilizing shorter implants with extra-orally cemented crowns or the screwless and cementless Bicon Integrated Abutment Crowns. With either technique you can almost always be assured of a natural looking gum line and a beautiful smile. Bicon is known for the finest aesthetics.

What is a dental implant?
The Bicon dental implant serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth. It is machined from surgical-grade titanium alloy (Ti 6Al-4V ELI) to exacting specifications. A dentist places the implant into either the upper or lower jawbone. After a period of time, the implant integrates with the bone and becomes a secure anchor for a replacement tooth, a fixed bridge, a removable partial, or a complete denture.

Am I a candidate for a dental implant?
If you are missing one or more teeth, then you may be a candidate for a dental implant. Your dentist will be able to discuss your individual clinical situation. Dental implants will allow you to smile, speak, and eat with confidence and comfort.

Is the implant ever rejected by the body?
The implant is machined from surgical-grade titanium alloy (Ti 6Al-4V ELI), which is a biocompatible material. However, there is a slight possibility that it will not integrate with bone. If this were to occur, the implant would be replaced with another one. It is highly unlikely that the second implant would not integrate.

What if I smoke?
Smoking can inhibit proper healing of an implant. However, this does not prevent smokers from having implants successfully placed and restored. You should speak with your dentist for more specific information relating to your dental needs and the effects of smoking.

Bicon, developed initially in Italy, is the epitome of simple elegance. The ease of placement and restoration is unsurpassed.
