What are the advantages of Bicon?

Dear Patient,

I hope this letter finds you well and I am pleased to guide you through the process of your dental implantation with BICON ultrashort implants. Since you have expressed interest in understanding the treatment procedure and advantages of such implants, I will provide a detailed step-by-step guide of the surgical procedures.

# Advantages of BICON Ultrashort Implants

A significant advantage of BICON ultrashort implants is the **reduced need for bone grafting**. Extensive bone grafting procedures are usually required when there’s insufficient bone to support standard-length implants. However, with BICON ultrashort implants, these procedures are often not necessary.

BICON ultrashort implants offer a **less invasive** option compared to traditional implants. This is particularly beneficial in situations where bone augmentation or sinus lift procedures would normally be required.

The use of ultrashort implants can potentially **shorten the treatment span**, simplifying the treatment process.

Further, by avoiding additional surgical procedures like bone grafting or sinus lifts, ultrashort implants can be **more cost-effective.**

Lastly, the simplified procedure and reduced need for additional surgical interventions may lead to a **lower risk of complications**.

# The Surgical Procedure

## First Step

The surgical procedure consists of inserting four to six Short Implants in the upper and/or lower jaw under local anesthesia and under sedation if requested. This surgery takes approximately one to two hours per jaw. Two follow-up visits are recommended, one 24 hours after surgery and another 48 hours later. If you have a removable prosthetic, it can be re-adjusted two days after surgery.

## Second Step

Three months after the Short Implant placement, a second appointment is necessary. During this visit, a small incision will be made in the soft tissue, and the prosthetic component will be affixed, indicating the implant position for the laboratory to create a stone model. You will have an opportunity to try in a replica of the prosthetic and discuss any desired aesthetic modifications with the prosthodontist. You will leave the office with healing abutments to allow for the proper healing of the soft tissue around each implant.

## Third Step

The third appointment is three days after the impression-taking. Once again, you will be able to try in the prosthetic replica and make any last-minute aesthetic corrections. The final prosthetic is inserted 48 hours later.

Our procedure has many advantages, one of which is that the fixed prosthesis is anchored to the implant abutments with a tight friction system. No cementation or screws are needed. In the future, if anything should happen to the prosthesis, dentists can remove and fix the problem without the need for special devices.

# Cost

The cost per arch varies between 12,000€ and 20,000€, depending on the number of implants and the type of prosthetic you select. This cost consideration aligns with your preference to prioritize the cost of dental treatment.

I hope this letter provides clarity regarding the advantages and surgical procedures associated with BICON ultrashort implants. As you desire to laugh without worries, we hope this dental implant treatment improves your quality of life and boosts your confidence.

Kind regards,

**Prof. Dr. Mauro Marincola**
