The Food and Drug Administration has given 510(k) clearance to additional dental materials for use with the Neocis Yomi dental surgery system. Yomi provides computerized navigation to assist in the planning and surgical phases of dental implant treatment. It offers physical guidance through haptic robotic technology, which constrains the drill in position, orientation, and depth. It also provides the surgeon with complete control and, unlike plastic surgical guides, clear visualization of the surgical site.
“Workflow options enabled by this new clearance offers more flexibility in the implementation of robot-assisted dental surgery and helps us to expand our reach to the more than 4 million dental implants performed in the US each year,” said Alon Mozes, PhD, chief executive officer of Neocis. “Workflow enhancements enabled by this new clearance are a direct result of our corporate commitment to the voice of the customer.”
