SmartFix concept

The smarter solution for restoring smiles

It's just smart

Immediate, full-arch restorations on four implants

Receiving teeth in a day makes great difference for edentulous, or soon-to-be edentulous, patients. The SmartFix concept is designed to renew quality of life by:

  • eliminating loose and ill-fitting dentures
  • reducing the need for bone grafting even for patients with severely resorbed jawbone
  • providing full restorations all on four dental implants* by tilting the two distal implants
  • anatomic structures can be avoided and fewer, longer implants can be used

Your patients rely on you to restore their ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence. With the SmartFix concept you can improve the quality of life of your edentulous patients with a secure and reliable immediate full-arch restoration.

Better than dentures

The SmartFix concept enables you to optimize available bone and avoid anatomical structures by placing the distal implants at an angle. Supporting a fixed, full-arch restoration on four implants is a well-proven method for treating edentulous patients.* As a result, patients are often spared time-consuming, costly, and uncomfortable bone grafting procedures without compromising reliable long-term outcomes.

Tilted placement allows for longer and fewer implants, reducing the need for invasive protocols.
Tilting the distal implants improves anterior posterior spread and load distribution, while reducing cantilevers.
Eliminates costs associated with bone grafting procedures, reduces number implants used, and minimizes treatment times.

The SmartFix concept has significantly grown our clinic. In four years, immediately loaded, full-arch restorations on four implants represent our most significant sector of our work and our greatest potential for growth.

The smart benefits

Practices

Are you reaching patients who need
full-arch treatment?

According to research, the need for full-arch, implant-supported restorations will continue to grow.

For practices, this can be an incredible business opportunity.

Are you confident you’re offering the solutions that best meet your patients’ individual needs?

By 2020, the U.S. adult population needing 1–2 dentures will approach 37.9 million. By incorporating the SmartFix concept as a treatment option, you can experience:

Attract new patient groups, and increase patient acceptance, by offering a cost-effective, immediate solution.
Avoid complex grafting procedures, reduce overall treatment time, cost and number of visits.
Increase your practice’s productivity and profitability with a standardized procedure and streamlined workflow.
