Helping you serve your patients better

Who We Are

Our mission is to offer implant manufacturers, dentists and oral surgeons a cutting-edge protective membrane for preventing peri-implant diseases in implant patients.

SmartDentalCare has developed a prototype and method to protect the peri-implant tissue from excess cement in a cement-retained implant. The solution involves the use of 3D printing technology to simulate and fabricate models precisely using a wide variety of materials, ranging from rigid to flexible. Protective Shield’s solution creates a layer that prevents the penetration of excess cement to peri-implant soft tissues.

The simple, affordable, and efficient technique will assist clinicians considerably in combating peri-implant disease and implant failure. Protective Shield’s application will involve scanning the abutment and its surrounding tissues, and subsequently manufacturing a custom flexible and thin protective shield via 3D printers. Two techniques will be involved – one for soft tissue-level implants and another for bone-level implants.

3D Printing Technologies

One of the latest trends in dentistry has been the rise of 3D resin printing. Although it has been around for years, 3D printing has only recently taken hold of the dental industry. 3D printing technologies thrive in an environment where our unique bodies require custom solutions, which is why the dental industry is undergoing rapid digital transformation.  By utilizing this technology, Protective Shield is able to bring increased efficiency, consistently high quality, and lowered costs to dental labs and practices.

Benefits of Our Solution

Achieve Accuracy and Precision

The delicate nature of the implant procedure requires high accuracy and precision in the development of the protective membrane, possible through the use of 3D printing technology.

Easy Product Application

The protective membrane is very easy to apply. This that will encourage dentists to try the products.

Potential for Mass Production

The membrane can be mass produced for distribution to implant manufacturers, according to their specifications. This will save time and money.

Cement-Retained Dental Implants

Cement-retained dental implant treatment has been successful and favorable over screw-retained treatment to restore lost teeth. Despite its advantages, cement-retained implants tend to leave excess cement on the implant or in the surrounding soft tissues, which has been associated with peri-implant disease and consequent implant failures. These issues have caused clinicians to lean towards screw-retained restorations, despite their deficiencies.

Benefits of cement-retained dental implants include:

  • Lower Costs
  • Good Passive Fitness
  • Higher Aesthetic Results
  • Easier Control of Occlusion
  • Fewer Complex Manufacturing Procedures
  • Similarity to Conventional Methods of Restoration in Natural Teeth
