One of my research interests is navigated surgery. The Smop planning system from Swissmeda is the answer we have been waiting for so long.
Implant planning and the use of drilling templates is no longer reserved just for specialists.
The system is so simple and logical that I have to recommend it for anyone who places implants.
- Prof. Dr. Dr. Rolf Ewers, C.M.F. Institut Ges.m.b.H., Vienna
As a specialised dental laboratory for implant technology in Hamburg, we rely on quick, simple and easy communication with dentists and surgeons.
The opportunities and the demand for high-precision drilling templates for guided implantology are evolving rapidly at the moment. We are only able to work efficiently and make templates quickly if the data exchange and the communication among the team -- that is -- between the surgeon and the treating physician -- is made quick and direct through the click of a mouse online, and if it can easily be implemented in everyday use.
This is precisely what Swissmeda has done with its SMOP planning community. The ease of use and the fact that we no longer need expensive scan templates in advance also speak for this system: The entire process is a lot more efficient. I am absolutely convinced and highly recommend SMOP!

The SMOP software from Swissmeda is very intuitively designed and very easy to use. The software is free, eliminating the need for making significant investment in a planning application.
The only costs are the annual support and usage fee and the case-related costs that vary by the service. I have high expectations for this model and I am convinced that this will be the right way to implement this technology in the practice.
The workflow is optimised considerably and the whole process can be organised much more practically compared to other systems. This eliminates all of the preparatory efforts and expenses for planning. All of the individual planning phases (in situ models, set-up / wax-up) can be saved digitally and integrated with x-ray data available through the platform.
Many communication steps and creation of the scan templates in the lab are eliminated. From my perspective, the SMOP workflow is a much better method overall. There are no fees until all of the components fit and the patient gives the OK to proceed. For me, this is the practical way to use template-guided implants in the practice these days.

Universities develop new ideas and implement them in parallel to established solutions in the clinic. The subject-specific knowledge and capabilities are too limited at most clinics to implement digital innovations.
We have found a competent partner in the new company, Swissmeda, who provided us with support for promising software projects. For example, in 2011 we collaborated on the development of software in order to be able to measure and evaluate volume changes in soft tissue structure. This software allows us to perform highly precise, reproducible and documentable assessments. We are currently using the software for various projects.
The collaboration with Swissmeda has been very productive and fun too, for everyone involved.

With the advent of Swissmeda's intuitive implant planning software, accompanied with Nucraft's ability to support the software and print highly accurate 3D guides, I can literally plan the surgical and prosthetic component of every implant case. Full collaboration between the surgeon, restorative dentist, and laboratory technician ,via one-click sharing on the internet, occurs PRIOR TO IMPLANT PLACEMENT. This game changing innovation provides remarkable predictability, and has eliminated prosthetic and economic "surprises" for every case.

I have been using template-guided implants for many years now and am very familiar with all of the systems. Swissmeda's new planning community is finally available to those of us providing treatment and is oriented towards our needs:
It is much easier to use, the processes are fast and the new templates work great.

First I want to thank your corporation. I inserted the implant in three patients using your surgical guide. It fits easily in the mouth and gives an excellent result.
For one patient I used the template in the lab first to make two temporary crowns and they were nicely fitted to the implant in the patient mouth.
- Dr. med. dent. Ayham Arab Oghli, Lasting Smile Dental Clinics, Riad, Saudi Arabia
I have been working with various systems for guided implantation planning and insertion for nearly 10 years. SMOP has provided software for two years that satisfies every requirement.
We can barely remember the easy installation, because we immediately started planning cases at the first program launch without requiring a long introduction to the software. Of course, despite the fact that the software is very intuitive, you can get even more from it, by getting tips from the pros or by taking a training course.
I especially liked that in addition to a conventional planning approach, there is now also an entirely digital workflow either for partially edentulous patients or through utilization of planning implants and the use of a printed splint.
And let's not forget the interaction both with the support centre and with referral dentists or specialist colleagues.

Since becoming a SwissMeda, guided surgery center, my clients and patients are receiving more accurate and cost-effective implant dentistry. Our surgeons love the guides.
Terry Fohey, CEO NuCraft Dental Arts, Athens, Georgia, USA ~ September 2014
Safety, efficiency, convenience, patient comfort – these aspects are very important to me. I have been placing implants under surgical stent guidance for many years and can only warmly recommend this to all my colleagues. The swissmeda software has opened up a whole new world of navigated implant placement for me.
The system is extremely stringently designed – you can almost physically sense all the clinical experience the developers brought to this project. The classic workflow of navigated implantology has been shortened and simplified significantly, eliminating numerous costly and time-consuming intermediate steps. CBCT – set-up – implant planning: these are the few steps needed for delicately yet high-precision surgical templates.
For me, this is what modern oral implantology is all about. The procedure and results fully match my high expectations. At first, it almost felt as if this was my very own software, programmed specifically to suit me and my personal tastes. But when I heard how enthusiastic other dentists sounded, I quickly realized that this was simply because swissmeda has managed to deliver a highly practical solution.

The perfect crown on the perfect implant is the goal of the dental-technical surgical team in modern dentistry.
The online SMOP system provides a comprehensive tool to that end. The program enables the analysis of DICOM data, the combination with surface scan data from model scans and intraoral scanners, the precise planning of the prosthetic and implant position, the sharing of the results within the team and the all-digital design of navigation templates for guided implantation.
All steps of the process are online-based and can be carried out simultaneously by the entire team. SMOP therefore provides a modern effective tool that optimises implantology and prosthodontics within the digital workflow of the team.

Swissmeda CBCT Implant Guided Surgery
“We have been using the Swissmeda (SMOP) CBCT guided implant surgery system since May 2013 and have used over 120 guides for single and multiple implant cases.”
“We are now placing essentially all dental implants (delayed and immediate) with 3D surgical guides for predictable outcomes surgically and prosthetically.” These guides know where the sinus, nerve, roots, bone, soft tissue is, and where the future crown will be. Therefore, you will minimize complications for your patients. This is an invaluable asset for performing dental implant surgery.
“We know this system will provide our patients with the best possible results and improve prosthetic and surgical planning among dentist, technicians, and the implant surgeon.”
“If you are serious about providing state of the art 3D guided implant surgery, this is a system you should strongly consider.”
Stanley D. Satterfield, DMD ~ November 2014
As one of the leading universities in dentistry, we focus on identification and promotion of new approaches that significantly improve existing technologies and processes.
We recognised early on that Swissmeda's template technology was just such an innovation. What should be emphasised is the new "light" construction method with the defined contact points and the option of printing these templates using 3D printing.
Teamwork plays an increasingly significant role in improving the quality of planning and reducing costs. With its planning system, Swissmeda's provides an innovative solution for this. The server-based online system reduces the effort required for the exchange of design data to a mouse click.
We are very satisfied with our use of SMOP planning system and can only support the further development of Swissmeda's digital planning.
