What is your opinion on Bicon implants? Can you advise on my case?

January 9th, 2012
Q.
i have had 4 front teeth on a plate for 27 yrs and now have a failing crown and have been to 2 dentists for an assesment. 1st one said im not suitable for implants as i need 4 surgeries and he cant gaurantee its success (he didnt even take an xray) the 2nd one has said i dont need grafting as he uses bicon short implants. i need 6 teeth and he says i need 6 implants – is this right? and do bicon short implants usually do away with grafting? and finally the 2nd dentist did take several xrays/photos but says i dont need a ct scan, but ive read sevaral times that i should have one – is this true?,

Would gum regeneration be possible to make gums look natural?

January 3rd, 2012
Q.
Hello, Hope you don’t mind these questions…. A few years ago I had 2 teeth knocked out, top central incisor and the lateral next to it. I had implants placed but had lost a bit of gum in the area due to the long process. I have had the implants now a few years, and whilst I think they look ok, the gum above them is very dark and receded, compared to the rest of my healthy pink gum. Is there anything that can be done to repair/regenerate gum in this area? I cant find much information on such a procedure and it does seem complicated now that I have the implants in place. Also aesthetically I am left with a black hole in between the implants where gum should be. Also, an odd question, but would there be a difference in fees to see you at your practice in pangbourne rather than london? Also Im a healthy 24 year old male with no other teeth problems. ,
