Dear Patient,

I am writing to address your oral health concern and outline a patient-centered treatment plan with the use of BICON ultrashort dental implants. I understand that you’re missing a tooth and wish to restore your ability to chew firmly. Furthermore, you express a desire for immediate fitting with a crown post-extraction and demonstrate cost-consciousness.

BICON ultrashort implants present numerous advantages, including a reduced need for bone grafting, less invasiveness, a shorter treatment span, cost-effectiveness, and the potential for a lower risk of complications.

The surgical procedure for BICON ultrashort implants involves a different approach and requires careful technique to ensure long-term results. These implants, shorter than 8mm, are characterized by a plateau geometry and are tapped into the bone, rather than screwed. This method guarantees a higher contact area between the implant surface and the surrounding bone.

The surgical procedure:
1. First Step: Involves the placement of four to six ultrashort implants in the upper and/or lower jaw under local anesthesia. Patients can opt for sedation. The surgery typically lasts one to two hours per jaw. Follow-up visits are recommended 24 hours and 48 hours after surgery.
2. Second Step: Occurs three months later. A small incision is made in the soft tissue and the prosthetic component is affixed. The patient will try a prosthetic replica and discuss desired aesthetic modifications.
3. Third Step: The patient will try the prosthetic replica again and make last-minute aesthetic corrections. The final prosthetic is inserted 48 hours later.

The cost per arch ranges between 12.000€ and 20.000€, depending on the number of implants and the type of prosthetic selected.

Thank you for considering BICON ultrashort implants as your dental treatment of choice. We are committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective dental care that meets your specific needs.

Kind regards,

**Prof. Dr. Mauro Marincola**

#### Glossary
1. **BICON ultrashort implants**: Dental implants that are less than 8mm in length. These are tapped into the bone, rather than screwed, resulting in greater contact area with the surrounding bone.
2. **Plateau Geometry**: A design feature of BICON ultrashort implants that ensure they have a greater contact area with the surrounding bone.
3. **Sedation**: A state of calm or sleep induced by drugs, typically used to make patients comfortable during surgical procedures.
4. **Prosthetic Component**: The part of the dental implant that is visible in the mouth. This is usually a crown, bridge, or denture.
5. **Abutment**: The component of the dental implant that connects the implant to the prosthetic component.
6. **Local Anesthesia**: An anesthetic drug (which can be given as a shot, spray, or ointment) that numbs only a small, specific area of the body.
7. **Arch**: Either the upper or lower jaw.
8. **Incision**: A surgical cut made in skin or flesh.
9. **Healing Abutments**: Components temporarily attached to the implant during the healing process. They help guide the healing of the surrounding gum tissue.
