Footage produced by Bicon Implants and provided through Dr. Edward Brant of Long Island NY.
- Implants Gone Bad: Removal Procedure
Specialized implants exist for a variety of tissue health conditions that promote the highest degree of osseointegration and biocompatibility for any given tissue area. Short implants, long implants, tapered implants, barrel type, etc. Abutment devices also add more degrees of customization.

WARNING - This video extremely GRAPHIC - The characteristics of jawbone frequently defines what type of bone grafting procedure will produce the best results in terms of predictability and long term endurance. In this video a male patient sustained an implant failure due to poor bone quality in the maxilla. It was determined that to augment the insufficient width and density of bone at the implant site, a solid piece of healthy bone would provide a solid foundation for recreating an "implant environment" that is second, only perhaps, to what mother nature provides. Surgery footage provided by Dr. Edward Brant of Long Island NY

Traditional and provisional implants are used to provide immediate dental function via a denture prosthetic with the planned goal of an implant supported bridge.
- Diagnosing Healthy Osseointegration: Implant Loading
Implant failures are commonly caused by osseointegration failures that can be attributed to one or several complicating factors. Technologies do exist however for dentists, surgeons, periodontists and implantologists to objectively measure the amount and rate of osseointegration which is critical for determining when an implant should be loaded with the restoration crown(s) or prosthesis. Watch a animated clip demonstrating the Ostell Mentor device. Utilizing Resonance Frequency Pulses, it provides technical data that can have a dramatic impact on treatment success.

The Model is a precise representation of the patient's upper jaw with six implant devices mounted. The implant bar is installed, followed up with the mounting of the interface device. As can be seen, the seemingly simple process of aligning the attachment devices progresses smoothly. The final fitting of the fixed prosthetic demonstrates the "Snap In" effect of the Marius interface.
- Marius Bridge: Final Install
This video is a continuation of the preceding video. After testing the calibration, the dentist installs the Marius Bridge infrastructure elements and attaches the final prosthetic. As can be seen in the video, the use of 3D catscans and CAD/CAM milling of the titanium elements creates a perfect fit into the implant configuration that was originally designed with Virtual Treatment software.
- Marius Bridge Treatment Example
Actual treatment example using The Marius Bridge. Specially created for upper edentulous jaw reconstruction by Yvan Fortin DMD of Quebec Canada, this denture treatment alternative utilizes proprietary technology for creating tooth replacement choices that offer the rock solid stability of an implant supported prosthesis while enabling patients to remove the prosthesis for routine cleaning or entire replacement.
