Ivotion Guided Smileloc
Every year less than 1% of needy patients receive full-arch treatment, and treatment cost is the number 1 barrier. Ivotion Guided Smileloc offers doctors a same-day, long-term fixed hybrid solution that can be priced for patients at half the traditional cost.
National Crisis – Full Arch
- 40 million adult Americans have no teeth – American Society of Prosthodontists
- Over 250-300K arches are surgically restored each year (2021 industry data).
- This represents 0.75% of all needy Americans if you assume that all the surgeries were single arch and all patients edentulous.
- This is unrealistically high as dentate patients and double arch surgeries are not factored in.
- The biggest patient barrier to dental treatment is cost. (source 1 | source 2 | source 3 | source 4)
Why is this crisis so difficult to solve?
The predominant reason why other industry attempts to solve this issue have been historically unsuccessful is due to the primary focus placed on providing a ‘cheaper’ solution. This is based on the idea that making the solution ‘cheaper’ will allow the practitioner to pass these savings to patients. Unfortunately, a cheaper solution very frequently results in a lesser quality product that routinely fails both the doctor and the patient.
The real answer is NOT cheaper, it is smarter.
The solution – Ivotion Guided Smileloc
There are two predominant concerns any long-term solution must address and solve:
1. LONG-TERM PROSTHESES STRENGTH
The prostheses must be strong enough to become a viable long-term fixed hybrid solution for patients. This has to be the predominant focus of any solution. Prosthesis strength can be addressed across multiple dimensions:
- Material Strength – solved by the Ivotion denture
- Zero Prosthesis Holes – solved by Smileloc abutment system
- Passivity – solved by CHROME GuidedSMILE
2. LAB COST REDUCTION FOR THE DOCTOR
The solution must provide a reduction in lab costs that in turn can be passed along to the patient all while maintaining necessary doctor profit margins. The answer to this societal issue is the innovative integration of THREE PATENTED technologies for one game-changing solution – Ivotion Guided Smileloc.
- Ivoclar’s Ivotion Denture
- RODO’s Smileloc
- ROE’s CHROME GuidedSMILE
Ivoclar’s Ivotion Denture’s strong material strength
The Ivotion Digital Milled Denture has strength at its very core. Traditional and typical digital dentures are printed, milled, and/or manufactured in separate pieces and then ‘glued’ together, but not the Ivotion Denture. The Ivotion Denture is digitally designed and milled from a highly cross-linked monolithic PPMA puck. This unique approach to denture manufacture provides a denture of beautiful esthetics and superior strength.
The way that the Ivotion denture is used in Ivotion Guided Smileloc makes it even stronger still. ROE, in partnership with Ivoclar, has developed an FP3 version of the Ivotion denture which follows the same manufacturing process but greatly increases the base prosthesis thickness to meet and exceed the need for full arch restoration.
RODO’s Smileloc Abutment System’s zero prostheses hole technology
The RODO Smileloc Abutment System is revolutionary for full arch restoration. Any holes in prostheses inherently make them weaker. The Smileloc abutment system is a no-hole technology that utilized a shape-memory material most commonly used in medical procedures e.g. stents. Through the specific application of energy the Smileloc abutment returns to a ‘normal’ state quickly disengaging from the Ti coping. ROE, in partnership with RODO, has developed an exceptionally efficient extra-oral conversion process that maximizes the accuracy and application of the Smileloc.
The combination of Smileloc with the Ivotion denture magnifies the inherent strength of the denture. By removing the need for any implant holes Smileloc allows Ivotion to be the best version of itself.
ROE’s CHROME GuidedSMILE’s pre-planned passivity
ROE’s CHROME GuidedSMILE is the market-leading, patented, fully guided, metal, stackable surgical system in the country. Over 10,000 arches in the last 5 years have been successfully restored using CHROME GuidedSMILE. Its highly engineered simplicity coordinates implants, bone reduction, and prosthetics, with a very simplified conversion protocol.
CHROME GuidedSMILE is the underlying technology that makes Ivotion Guided Smileloc work. It provides the highly accurate placement of implants and prostheses that allows for all three elements to successfully integrate into a cohesive, very passive, strong solution. The passivity that CHROME brings is key as it removes any mechanical forces that would twist and apply pressure to the connection between the implants and the prothesis (the Smileloc abutment) and in the prosthesis itself (the Ivotion FP3 denture).
