Your next dental assistant may be a robot. By Design Dental Implant Center in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, now offers Yomi Robot-Assisted Dental Surgery. The technology assists dental surgeons with 3-D surgical planning and guided surgical placement of dental implants. In many cases, it also supports same-day, minimally invasive flapless dental implant procedures.
“Yomi state-of-the-art dental technology increases my surgical control and helps me provide exceptional patient experiences, including the predictable surgical outcomes and predictable restorations that my patients expect,” said Robert Mogyoros, DMD, an oral, maxillofacial, and implant surgeon at the practice.
Yomi Robot-Assisted Dental Surgery is designed to provide an end-to-end digital surgical experience, including collaborative planning software and surgical guidance. The dental surgeon is 100% in control during Yomi procedures, according to the technology’s manufacturer, Neocis
“Robotic assistance is becoming standard care across surgical disciplines, and we at Neocis are excited to bring robotic technology to By Design Dental and their patients with Yoni,” said Alon Mozes, PhD, Neocis cofounder and CEO. “We are proud to partner with leading dental surgeons who share our drive to innovate and bring new approaches to improve patient care and quality of life.”
Yomi Robot-Assisted Dental Surgery is the first and only robot-assisted dental surgery system commercially available in the United States, Neocis reports. Cleared by the Food and Drug Administration, the computerized navigational system provides physical guidance through haptic robotic technology, which constrains the drill in position, orientation, and depth.
“Unlike with conventional printed surgical guides, with Yomi I can offer my patients same-day guided implant surgery,” Mogyoros said. “Additionally, Yomi allows me to clearly visualize the patient’s surgical site and enables me to change the plan at any time to best address the patient’s anatomy.”
