Special Dental Implants
Sometimes there is not enough vertical room for a traditional implant. In these cases there are multiple options:
1) Proceed with a denture.
2) Proceed with a sinus lift, bone graft membrane, traditional implant. This would require possibly two or more surgeries.
3) Proceed with a specialized dental implant.
A Bicon dental implant is a specialized dental implant which is shorter in height (vertical length) but wider in width (horizontal length), thus achieving the same functional result as a traditional implant. Dr. Pawlowski will use a bicon implant if there is not enough room, either because of bone loss, the location of the mandibular nerve or a low sinus.
