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.
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.
An implant and an all-ceramic crown restored the
site of a congenitally missing lateral incisor.
What is a dental implant?
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.
