Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a dentist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth. For decades, dentists have been offering patients the benefits of dental implants. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. The Bicon Dental Implant System, since 1985, has offered discerning dentists the ability to provide secure implant restorations that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. You know that your confidence about your teeth affects how you feel about yourself, both personally and professionally. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. Maybe your dentures don't feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence, there is good news! Dental implants are teeth that can look and feel just like your own. Under proper conditions, implants can last a lifetime. Learn more about Bicon Dental Implants.

  • Measure available bone and soft tissue thickness

  • Accurately map the alveolar nerve canal

  • Virtually place the final crown in its ideal location

  • Virtually place any type of dental implant

  • Place multiple and opposing implants at once
