Bicon Short Implants
When the Bicon system was first introduced in 1985, its 8.0-mm length implants were considered quite short.
According to Bicon, most other implants were at least 12 to 14 mm and sometimes 18 to 20 mm long. Since then, the natural progression of Bicon's design philosophy has resulted in 5.0 mm, 5.7 mm, and 6.0 mm SHORT Implants, all with proven clinical success.

The SHORT Implant line is the cornerstone of Bicon’s simplicity-driven approach. It was introduced in 1985 with the original 8.0 mm length—exceptionally short compared to the typical implants of the time. Since then, the natural progression of the Bicon design philosophy has resulted in 5 mm and 6 mm SHORT Implants, all with proven clinical success. “Since 1997, I have successfully used the 6.0mm Bicon SHORT Implant in cases that would have required grafting procedures and, in some instances, even nerve repositioning,” said Dr. Clarence Lindquist, a Washington, D.C., oral surgeon who’s been placing implants since 1982. “The Bicon SHORT...Read More
