3. Pre-Surgical Decisions

GuidedSMILE Natural

There is a philosophy of minimal bone reduction surging in full-arch dentistry. Most full-arch, immediate-load, cases completed today do not follow this philosophy. They involve leveling the bone to a flat surface and meeting that surface with a prosthetic, often with what is considered excessive alveoloplasty. There is an alternative and it is a part of the GuidedSMILE family of products – GuidedSMILE Natural.

FP1 prosthetics can be delivered with GuidedSMILE Natural, for patients who present with gummy smiles. The goal is not to take away excessive amounts of bone in order to raise the smile line, rather, to deliver a beautiful FP1 type bridge that meets the tissue, without pink, with minimal bone augmentation. GuidedSMILE Natural was developed for this situation.

GuidedSMILE Natural follows the same beginning as standard CHROME cases – Pin Guide, Fixation Base, and Osteotomy Guide. Then, a special scalloped guide aids with the visualization and contouring of the alveoli’s reduction to create socketing for the tissue and prosthetic. This is technique sensitive and we like to send one of our experienced technicians chairside for guidance for at least your first case.

The prosthetic is delivered during surgery and then converted in several months using a duplicate RAPID appliance that was picked up during surgery.

C2F (Conversion to Final) – Small Hole Technology

C2F (patent pending) is the CHROME philosophy of Small Hole Technology. This means delivering immediate prosthetics, during a CHROME surgery, with very small holes, rather than the typical industry-standard large holes. Small Hole Technology dramatically improves the performance of prosthetics and maintains the principal structure of the manufactured material.
