Bicon Surgical Manual

For nearly four decades, the Bicon design has remained consistent and unchanged — and has truly passed the test of time. Clinicians worldwide have used Bicon’s simple design and straightforward techniques to provide astounding clinical solutions for their patients.

Immediate Placement of a Maxillary Lateral Incisor

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.

Two-Stage Placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant

This case study video demonstrates the two-stage placement of a 5.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with an internal sinus lift procedure using guided surgery for a maxillary right first molar and its restoration with an Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC). The guided surgery placement was designed for a 5.0 x 5.0mm implant in order to minimize the risk of sinus perforation and expedite the placement of the 5.0 x 6.0mm Bicon SHORT® Implant with an internal sinus lift procedure. The osteotomy was then deepened using incrementally longer Guided Surgery Reamers through the 5.0mm Guide Ring until the length of the intended osteotomy and sinus elevation was achieved for the 6.0mm implant. In addition, one-week, nine-month, and five-year follow-up images are provided.
