Implants are an excellent answer for the replacement of missing teeth. It is important to have enough bone in the area of the missing tooth to attach to the implants. Implants can replace not only one tooth, but, can also meet the needs of someone missing most, if not all, of their teeth. Implants are increasingly being used to replace certain types of bridges and removable partial dentures.
Bone can be grafted to a site if there isn’t enough bone already there. The aesthetics that result are impressive.
“Bicon’s (a trade name) unique plateau design follows sound bio-engineering 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. There are never any screws to come loose with this system which is one reason why we chose to use this system.” Dr. Vegter
