Does our office place implants? Yes, We are currently placing the Bicon short implant system, a unique and very effective design which does not use screws or cement to retain the abutment post. This circumvents the failures that can occur due to the technique-sensitive nature of screws and cement. We also restore other implant brands placed by a surgeon or other specialist.
