how many implants are needed for a full arch reconstruction in the lower jaw?

Dear Patient,

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I understand that you are missing a tooth and are interested in dental implants as a solution, with the main concerns being cost and the ability to laugh without worries. As a specialist in Dental, Oral, and Maxillofacial Surgery with a focus on ultrashort BICON implants, I can assure you that you have made a wise decision.

BICON ultrashort implants offer a series of advantages including a reduced need for bone grafting, less invasive procedures, shorter treatment span, cost-effectiveness, and a potential for lower risk of complications. These implants, which are 8mm or less long, require a distinct approach and surgical procedure to ensure long-term results. They are not screwed into the bone like conventional implants, but tapped into it, providing a more stable grip.

The surgical procedure for BICON implant placement is kept as least traumatic as possible. This is achieved by working on a very reduced bone surface and avoiding excessive pressure on the vital bone. Low-drilling techniques are employed to prevent bone perforation and nerve trauma.

Our treatment plan involves three steps:

First, we will insert four to six short implants in the upper and/or lower jaw under local anesthesia. This surgery requires one to two hours per jaw. Two follow-up visits are recommended 24 hours and 48 hours after surgery.

Second, three months after the implant placement, a small incision will be made in the soft tissue to affix the prosthetic component. You will then be provided with a replica of your prosthetic to test and discuss any desired aesthetic modifications.

Third, three days after the impression-taking, you will have a chance to try on the prosthetic replica and make any last-minute aesthetic corrections. The final prosthetic is then inserted 48 hours later.

Regarding the cost, the price per arch varies between 12,000€ and 20,000€, depending on the number of implants and the type of prosthetic you select.

I hope this letter addresses all your concerns and questions. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any further clarification or information.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Mauro Marincola


BICON implants: A type of dental implant known for its ultra-short length.
Bone grafting: A procedure that transplants bone tissue to repair damaged bones or increase bone volume before procedures such as implantation.
Prosthesis: An artificial device that replaces a missing body part.
Abutment: A component that connects the implant to the prosthesis.
Aesthetic modifications: Changes made to improve the visual appearance of the prosthesis, such as color, shape and size.
Impression-taking: A process where a mould is made of a patient’s teeth to assist in the creation of a prosthesis.
