Changing the HOLE Industry, with Smileloc no-hole prosthetics

The Smileloc® Abutment System is the most innovative solution for full-arch restorations. Exclusively available for guided cases with ROE Dental Lab.

Smileloc is comprised of three components:

  • Titanium coping
  • Smileloc
  • Titanium abutment

The Smileloc is made from nitinol, a medical-grade alloy with unique shape-memory capabilities.

With its shape memory characteristics, Smileloc is a strong, simple, and safe option that eliminates the common complications associated with restorative solutions.

How Smileloc Works

Smileloc has 8 arms – 4 inner arms that engage an abutment undercut, and 4 outer arms that engage a coping undercut that the restoration is affixed to.

Prostheses are quickly and easily removed through the targeted application of heat onto the Smileloc sleeve with the Smilekey wand. The heat activates the nitinol shape memory returning all 8 arms to a non-engaging, unlocked state.

To return the prostheses, the Smileloc arms are simply ‘reset' to an engaging position or replaced, and the prostheses is clicked into place.

How is a Smileloc dental prosthesis removed?
Smileloc prostheses can easily be removed from the mouth with Smilekey. Smilekey is an induction device that emits targeted energy and activates the Smileloc's unlocked position. This unlocked position enables easy removal of the dental prosthesis.

How long does it take to “unlock” Smileloc with Smilekey?
Smilekey is preset to 8-seconds per site. With this in mind, most full arch all-on-x prostheses can be fully removed in less than a minute.

How long do I have to remove an arch before the Smileloc’s arms re-engage?
Once the Smileloc is in the unlocked position, it will remain in that configuration. Only if the arms are manually reset would it return to a locked configuration. How to reset the Smileloc using the Arm Setter and Pin

This animation shows how Smileloc transitions from its locked state (arms extended out) to an unlocked state (arms retracted in) with the application of the Smilekey device. The Smileloc abutment can be reset for locking by using the Regular Arm Setter.
