Unlike other dental implants, the Bicon System, requires only
two parts. There are no screws, torque drivers, impression
posts or special copings. The restoration of the Bicon implant
is the same as that of a post and core. If you can take an
impression and cement a crown, then you can successfully restore
a Bicon implant.
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 and no bacterial leakage
once the abutment is properly tapped into the implant. 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.
