The S.M.A.R.T. (Subperiosteal Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Ridge Augmentation Technique) technique is used as a minimally invasive approach for jaw bone reconstruction, providing superior bone regeneration outcomes.
What this means for our patients is that by using this technique, more difficult and involved cases in need of bone regeneration can now be treated with minimal risk of complications, less pain, swelling, faster healing and recovery than traditional bone grafting procedures. Thus, increasing bone width and height in sites that need implants to replace missing teeth in a more predictable way.
The S.M.A.R.T. bone grafting method is also useful in cases where existing dental implants have lost bone. Minimizing the surgical risks, pain, recovery time, and complications associated with grafting around existing implants. Dr. Arauz is the only surgeon trained on the use of the S.M.A.R.T. Bone Grafting Technique in Eastern North Carolina.
