Can Bicon be used as an alternative to root canal treatment?
YES! Not all teeth are good candidates for root canal treatment. In situations where the teeth are not worth saving, a Bicon implant should be considered. Root canal treatments are susceptible to decay and oftentimes put the patient through a painful and costly process (cf. crown lengthening). The cost factor for saving a tooth during the course of your dental treatments can exceed that of the placement of an implant and crown fabrication. This is not to say that root canals should not be done, but rather to say that implants should be considered as an alternative treatment.
