Telekonsultation – 2023-10-03 15:30


Dear Patient,

Thank you for considering treatment with me. As a specialist in Dental, Oral, and Maxillofacial Surgery, I am dedicated to providing a patient-centered treatment plan that ensures your comfort and satisfaction. This letter will outline a detailed plan, particularly the use of ultrashort BICON implants, which I specialize in.

Our treatment plan involves a standard procedure for computer-guided implantology, which includes 3D Intraoral Scanning, 3D Digital Volume Tomography (DVT) Scan, 3D Virtual Implant Planning, and 3D Surgical Implant Navigation. These procedures are minimally invasive and ensure precision in implant placement.

I wish to highlight the advantages of ultrashort BICON implants, which are implants that are 8mm or less long:

  • Reduced Need for Bone Grafting: They can often be placed without the need for extensive bone grafting procedures, which are required when there’s insufficient bone to support standard-length implants.
  • Less Invasive: They offer a less invasive option compared to traditional implants, particularly in situations where bone augmentation or sinus lift procedures would normally be required.
  • Shorter Treatment Span: Using ultrashort implants can potentially shorten the treatment span, simplifying the treatment process.
  • Cost-Effectiveness: Ultrashort implants can be more cost-effective as they often avoid additional surgical procedures like bone grafting or sinus lifts.
  • Potential for Lower Risk of Complications: The simplified procedure and reduced need for additional surgical interventions may lead to a lower risk of complications.

Short implants are characterized by a plateau geometry and are not screwed into the bone but tapped into it. This design guarantees a higher contact area between the implant surface and the surrounding bone, resulting in a stable “grip” into the bone. It is important to note that the surgical procedure for Short Implant placement is the least traumatic as possible.

The Surgical Procedure involves three main steps:

First Step

Inserting four to six Short Implants in the upper and/or lower jaw under local anesthesia. This surgery requires one to two hours per jaw, with two follow-up visits recommended 24 hours and 48 hours after surgery.

Second Step

A second appointment three months after the Short Implant placement, where a small incision in the soft tissue is made to affix the prosthetic component. This allows the laboratory to create a stone model based on the implant position.

Third Step

The third appointment is three days after the impression-taking. The final prosthetic is inserted 48 hours later.

The cost per arch varies between 12.000€ and 20.000€, depending on the amount of implants and the type of prosthetic you select.

It is my hope that this letter provides clarity on the treatment plan and invites you to reach out if you have any queries. I look forward to providing you with the best care possible.

Kind regards,

Prof. Dr. Mauro Marincolabr>

  • 3D Digital Volume Tomography (DVT) Scan: An imaging technique that provides detailed 3D images of the mouth and jaw.
  • 3D Virtual Implant Planning: A computer-guided technology that helps plan the position, angle, and depth of dental implant placement prior to surgery.
  • 3D Surgical Implant Navigation: A technique that leverages digital technology to guide the surgical placement of dental implants in the jawbone.
  • BICON: A brand of dental implants, known for their short and plateau design.
  • Bone Grafting: A procedure that involves transplantation of bone tissue to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged bones.
  • Sinus Lift: A dental procedure that adds bone to your upper jaw in the area of your molars and premolars to make it taller.
