Dental Implants Provide Aesthetics and Performance

Richard Gawel


The SHORT Implant design from Bicon Dental Implants comprises plateaus, sloping shoulders, and a bacterially sealed, 1.5° locking taper implant-to-abutment connection. With the plateau design, cortical-like bone forms around and between each plateau, which allows for the routine use of 5.0-mm short implants. The sloping shoulder provides the necessary room for bone to support interdental papillae that is gingivally aesthetic, the company reports. Also, Bicon’s 360° universal abutment positioning provides for the cementless and screwless Integrated Abutment Crown, consistently offering a nonmetallic aesthetic gingival margin.
