what is the advantage of a bicon implant. what are the costs

Dear Patient,

I appreciate your inquiry regarding the BICON ultrashort implants and their advantages. Given your oral health status, the need to extract a tooth, and your expectations for the implant to restore firm chewing capabilities, the BICON ultrashort implants may be a suitable option for your case.

These implants present several key advantages. First, they often eliminate the need for extensive bone grafting procedures, which are commonly required when there is insufficient bone to support standard-length implants. Instead, the size of these ultrashort implants, being 8mm or less in length, allows for a more conservative approach.

The **BICON ultrashort implants** are characterized by a plateau geometry and are not screwed into the bone, but rather tapped into it. This unique design increases the contact area between the implant surface and the surrounding bone, providing a more stable grip than screw-retained implants. The technique for their placement requires a delicate, minimally invasive procedure to avoid causing any trauma to the bone and nerves.

The procedure comprises of several steps:

1. **Insertion of implants**: Under local anesthesia, and sedation if requested, four to six short implants are inserted in the upper and/or lower jaw. This surgery takes about one to two hours per jaw. You will need to return for follow-up visits 24 hours and 48 hours after surgery. If you currently have a removable prosthetic, it can be readjusted two days after surgery.

2. **Prosthetic Component Affixation**: After three months, a small incision will be made in the soft tissue to affix the prosthetic component, which will indicate the implant position. This step allows for the creation of a stone model. You will have an opportunity to try a replica of the prosthetic and discuss any desired aesthetic modifications. Healing abutments will be placed to facilitate proper healing of the soft tissue around each implant.

3. **Final Prosthetic Placement**: Three days after the impression-taking, you will again try the prosthetic replica for any last-minute aesthetic corrections. The final prosthetic is inserted 48 hours later. One unique advantage of our procedure is that the fixed prosthesis is anchored to the implant abutments with a tight friction system, eliminating the need for cementation or screws. Future adjustments or repairs to the prosthesis can be easily performed without the need for special devices.

In terms of cost, the range per arch varies between 12,000€ and 20,000€, depending on the number of implants and the type of prosthetic you choose. However, the use of ultrashort implants can potentially shorten the treatment span and be a more cost-effective solution by avoiding additional surgical procedures like bone grafting or sinus lifts.

Given your preference for a 3D Implant Navigation procedure, it is important to note that this cutting-edge technology provides a more precise and less invasive implant placement, which is particularly beneficial when utilizing BICON ultrashort implants.

I hope this information provides a clear understanding of the BICON ultrashort implants procedure and its benefits. I would be happy to discuss this further and answer any more questions you may have.

Kind regards,

**Prof. Dr. Mauro Marincola**

– **Plateau geometry**: Implant design characterized by flat or level surfaces interspersed with spaces or gaps.
– **Healing abutments**: Temporary components that help the tissues around the implant to heal properly.
– **3D Implant Navigation**: A technology-driven method that guides the placement of dental implants for more accuracy and less invasiveness.
– **BICON ultrashort implants**: A type of dental implant that is shorter in length than traditional implants, providing a less invasive treatment option that requires less bone structure.
– **Sedation**: The use of medication to help patients relax during dental procedures.
– **Local anesthesia**: A type of anesthetic used to numb a specific area of the body.
– **Prosthesis**: An artificial device that substitutes a missing part of the body, such as a tooth in this case.
