This book is a succinct and accessible compilation of over 30 years of knowledge concerning the Bicon system. It offers not only a history of dental implants and the science of osseointegration but also a vast collection of clinical examples that demonstrate Bicon's capabilities. Bicon implants provide versatile, reliable treatment for a wide variety of clinical situations; they can successfully be placed in atrophic jaws, in sites that would require extensive bone grafting with longer implants, in tissue that has been compromised by medical conditions, and even in adolescent jaws that are still developing. With its proven track record of success, the Bicon system provides treatment opportunities for the benefit of clinicians, technicians, and patients by offering simple, predictable, and effective techniques. With everything from historical and theoretical origins to detailed step-by-step surgical and restorative guides, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in implantology.
