Bicon dental implants

Bicon is one of the fastest growing implant systems in the world. Unlike other dental implants, the Bicon System requires only two parts. There are no screws, torque drivers, impression posts or special copings. The restoration of the Bicon implant is the same as that of a post and core. Instead of screws, a locking taper joins the Bicon implant to the Bicon abutment. The locking taper or friction is a well-known engineering principle that is used in orthopaedic hip replacements; dentists use it each day with their dental lathes. The metal-to-metal contact means that there is no rotation and no bacterial leakage once the abutment is properly tapped into the implant. No rotation means that the design and execution of treatment plans are simpler and more predictable. Denture restorations are just as straightforward. With the use of Bicon's o-ring overdenture abutments the prosthesis can be fabricated 100% chair-side with no laboratory involvement or costs. One stage surgical techniques significantly reduce patient discomfort, actual chair-time and duration of treatment. New practitioners are given free training and free kit with 35 implants.
