GuidedSMILE THE ANSWER TO SAME-DAY, FULL-MOUTH GUIDED RECONSTRUCTION
GuidedSMILE was developed for dentists who desire a preplanned, predictable guided All-On-4 (5,6,7) style surgery. This amazing service delivers anchored bite verification, anchored bone reduction, anchored site drilling and finally very accurate anchored provisionalization. We offer this service from merely a CT scan and traditional records. The process, the product, the surgery is straightforward, and can include chairside assistance!
GuidedSMILE is a 4-Guide System
1 Pin guide - sets anchor pins
Pin Guide is fully seated on the patient's existing dentition. Once verified via the two occlusal windows, the horizontal sites are drilled and anchored. Anchor pins are fully seated, verified and the guide is removed.
2 Bone Reduction
Once teeth are removed and tissue is flapped, the Bone Reduction Guide is inserted, anchored, and bone is levelled to the meet the labial and lingual frame of the guide. This guide floats above the bone, and therefore should not be impinged by undercut.
3 Osteotomy Guide
This guide is rigidly fixed with the pins, yet floats around the bone. Standard protocols are followed to drill sites and place implants.
Superior to conventional denture pick-up systems, this anchored GuidedSMILE nano-ceramic provisional transfers the CO/CR as determined by pre-surgical records. Implant abutment positions, anchor sites, tooth position, smile, and tissue space are all pre-set.
GuidedSMILE Osteotomy Preparation Options
Option 1 - GuidedSMILE-FG - Fully Guided (as seen above) - accommodates fully guided kit from most manufacturers, accommodates ROE's sleeve-in-sleeve system, and allows some implants lines to be placed through the guide.
Option 2 - GuidedSMILE-PG - Pilot Guide - allows accurate placement of pilot drilling with subsequent non-guided sequencing.
Option 3 - GuidedSMILE-FH - Free-Hand - includes a location reference on the bone reduction frame to optimize implant location for PMMA pick-up, and a removeable reference inset to provide a maximum range for site preparation. Left image: notice the round divot references indicating implant general location. Right image: boundary insert used to ensure location of implants is within PMMA parameters.

Notes on preparring for, and capturing, the CT Scan.
If your patient is dentate, follow the above steps, and capture a CT scan with the patient opened biting on cotton rolls.
If patient is edentulous, and the existing denture fits well and the tooth arrangement is accepted, convert into a scan appliance (instructions page 6). Perform a dual scan using the protocol in our manual. If edentulous patients needs to establish tooth position and vertical, begin conventional denture steps to create a scan appliance.
We are always available to discuss your case. Call 800 228 6663 and ask for the CT Department and reference GuidedSMILE.
