Instead of screws joining the implant to the abutment, a locking taper joins the Bicon implant to the Bicon abutment. The locking taper or friction is a well known engineering principle that is used in orthopedic hip replacements; dentists use it each day with their dental lathes. The metal to metal contact means that there is no rotation once the abutment is properly tapped into the implant during second stage surgery. No rotation means that the design and execution of treatment plans are simpler and more predictable; it is not necessary to splint the implant to natural teeth or to other implants in order to gain stability.

THE BICON IMPLANT was designed to restore dentitions without using screws. For this reason, clinicians, technicians, and patients do not experience the limitations and frustrations inherent with the use of screws. The Bicon System, with its 360 of universal abutment positioning and sloping shouldered implant, offers clinicians the ability to consistently provide gingivally aesthetic restorations. Bicon's restorative techniques can be conventional or revolutionary with the cementless and screwless Integrated Abutment Crown (IAC).
BICON SHORT IMPLANTS offer flexibility to dentists in challenging clinical situations. The short lengths allow clinicians to avoid vital structures with confidence, and can eliminate the need for many grafting procedures. With Bicon, longer implant lengths are not necessarily better. In many clinical situations, shorter implants offer a better solution. The clinical reality is that many potential implant patients have limited bone height. When placing longer implants, the maxillary sinus and inferior alveolar nerve often present risks.
Since 1985 dentists have been offering patients the benefits of the Bicon Dental Implant System. With Bicon Dental Implants, your dentist has the ability to provide you with secure implant restorations often without the need for additional grafting procedures. The restorations will look, feel, and function like natural teeth. We invite you to learn more about what Bicon Dental Implants can do to help address your dental needs.
THE BICON SYSTEM is a unique dental implant system, offering the worldwide dental community a comprehensive solution since 1985. Bicon's engineers and clinicians have been responsible for many of the innovations in implant dentistry for decades. Bicon's unique plateau design follows sound bioengineering principles which allow for the use of short implants. Its unique bacterially-sealed, locking taper, implant to abutment connection provides for 360° of universal abutment positioning - offering restorative flexibility unmatched by other implant systems.
Clinically proven since 1985, Bicon's unique dental implants and its revolutionary clinical techniques have not only passed the test of time, but also continue to lead implant dentistry. We welcome your joining Bicon clinicians from around the world, so that both you and your patients may also enjoy the many clinical benefits of Bicon implants. The following radiographic images demonstrate the fact that Bicon SHORT Implants require minimal bone, which frequently eliminates the need for bone grafting procedures and anxiety when placing implants near vital structures.
In this video, Dr. Bill Schaeffer of London discusses short implants, why they work, and the unique advantages they offer to the clinician. Dr. Schaeffer also conducts a review of literature and discusses his first-hand experiences with short dental implants. This video demonstrates the fabrication of telescopic TRINIA prostheses using cemented prefabricated retentive and non-retentive titanium copings on Bicon Universal Abutments, the fabrication of light-cured resin jigs used for the orientation and insertion of the abutments, and presents five clinical case studies highlighting the benefits of these innovative techniques.
