The Restorative Dentist
The Bicon System, with its 360° of universal abutment positioning and sloping shouldered implant, offers clinicians the ability to consistently provide gingivally aesthetic restorations. Bicon’s restorative techniques can be conventional or revolutionary with the cementless and screwless Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC). Bicon restorative crown techniques routinely take less chairtime than those for natural teeth.
The Surgical Specialist
In addition to more predictable and versatile placement techniques, Bicon’s dental implant design provides a bacterially-sealed implant to abutment connection. Bicon SHORT® Implants afford simpler and consistently more predictable treatments, which can significantly increase a patient’s acceptance of dental implants.
The Bicon Dental Implant System allows the dentist to consistently offer functional and gingivally aesthetic restorations to patients, so that they may truly enjoy implant prostheses that look and feel like natural teeth. Additionally,the odors and tastes associated with screws are avoided.
The Laboratory Technician
Many dental implant systems require the fabrication of expensive customized abutments. With the Bicon Dental Implant System, technicians receive a conventional or implant-level transfer impression from which a porcelain fused to metal crown, all-ceramic crown, or fixed and removable overdenture prostheses can be simply fabricated. For the ultimate in flexibility and aesthetics, the cementless and screwless Bicon Integrated Abutment Crown™ (IAC) can also be fabricated.

Definition of Dental Implant Terminology
- An abutment is a component that attaches to the dental implant so a professional can place a dental crown to provide patients with an artificial, aesthetically pleasing and fully-functional smile.
- Multiple replacement teeth that are fixed in place via attachment to dental implants, natural adjacent teeth, or a combination of the two.
- Dental Crown
- A crown is an artificial tooth, usually consisting of porcelain, which covers the top of the implant to provide people with an aesthetically pleasing and fully-functional tooth.
- Dental Implant
- A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
- Endosteal (endosseous)
- Endosteal is a type of dental implant that a professional places in the alveolar and basal bone of the mandible that transcends only one cortical plate.
- Eposteal (subperiosteal)
- Eposteal is a type of dental implant that conforms to whichever edentulous surface of an alveolar bone is superior.
- Implant-Supported Bridge
- An implant-supported bridge is a dental bridge that professionals fix in place with the use of dental implants inserted in the jaw to create a sturdy set of artificial teeth.
- Osseointegration is the process in which a titanium dental implant fuses with the surrounding bone over several months after an oral health professional places the implant in the jaw.
- Literally “around the tooth”
- Resorption is the process in which the body absorbs the calcium from the jaw since there are no tooth roots to cause the necessary stimulation and proceeds to use the calcium in other areas.
- Transosteal (transosseous)
- Transosteal is a type of dental implant that includes threaded posts which penetrate the superior and inferior cortical bone plates of the jaw.
