S.M.A.R.T. Bone Grafting

We are proud to offer a minimally invasive alternative to traditional bone graft surgeries: the S.M.A.R.T. ® bone grafting method.

Using the S.M.A.R.T. technique Dr. Aldredge is able to precisely place a bone graft around the tooth root or in the jaw without cutting the gums or lifting them away from teeth as with traditional bone graft procedures.

Instead, the S.M.A.R.T. technique is like lapriscopic surgery. Dr. Aldredge is able to make a very small incision where the bone graft is needed and, using special tools, deliver the graft material to the correct position.

How It Works

The incision heals on its own with no need for sutures. Patients report less discomfort, less swelling, and faster healing.

The S.M.A.R.T. method is suited to patients who have bone loss or defects in areas that can be seen when they smile. Dr. Aldredge will assesses your bone less to see if S.M.A.R.T. is the best treatment for you. Calling our office to learn more.

S.M.A.R.T. stands for “Subperiosteal Minimally Invasive Aesthetic Ridge Augmentation.” Simply put, it means building bone in the jaw using a minimally invasive procedure resulting in a good-looking smile.

Dr. Aldredge attended surgical training at S.M.A.R.T. Biomedical in order to be certified in S.M.A.R.T. procedure. He is one of a limited number of periodontists in New Jersey permitted to use this technology. The S.M.A.R.T. technique has been proven successful with an extensive documented clinical track record.
