Implant robot

Since 2000, more than 4 million operations have been carried out using robots in various areas of medicine, ranging from cardiology to orthopedics. Finally, the turn came to dentistry. The pioneer, and currently the only robot system in dentistry, is Yomi (Implant robot), with which more than 1,000 implants were placed in 2019.This was announced in early January by Neocis Inc., a leader and pioneer in the field of dental robotics (and part-time developers of Yomi).

Yomi skills

Yomi’s specialisation is limited – it is intended exclusively for implant placement. However, he can do it on his own, practically without the intervention of a doctor.

First, he makes a computed tomography of the patient’s head, then the program plans the procedural stages of the operation and performs the implantation with perfect accuracy. But talking about replacing a dentist with a robot is very early to say. Yomi is more used as an assistive technology, providing the surgeon with complete control, and, unlike plastic surgical guides, allows you to clearly visualize the operation site. If initially Yomi was positioned as a robot capable of performing operations on its own (in fact, he began his career by placing two implants), now it is released as a device to assist in the preoperative and postoperative stages.

Robotic technology also limits
  • drill position,
  • orientation, and
  • depth.

The system provides software for preoperative planning of dental implantation procedures and provides navigation guidance for surgical instruments. The robot provides surgical guidance through the use of tactile robotic technology, software, and multi-sensory feedback to help achieve the correct position, angle, and depth for accurate placement of the implant as planned.

Flapless implant surgery

Yomi provides minimally invasive flapless access, which has been proven to lead to faster surgery, faster recovery and less pain for the patient.

Dr. Joe Griffin, a dentist with Cornerstone Dental Arts and new Yomi user, says, “We’ve been able to use Yomi for many cases thanks to a quick learning curve. The system has been easy to incorporate into our practice. We see this clearly establishing a new standard of care for implant patients.”

About Yomi

Yomi® is indicated for use to provide assistance in both the planning (pre-operative) and the surgical (intra-operative) phases of dental implantation surgery. The system provides software to preoperatively plan dental implantation procedures and provides navigational guidance of the surgical instruments. Yomi® provides surgical guidance through the use of haptic robotic technology, software, and multisensory feedback to help achieve the right position, angulation, and depth to place the implant exactly according to plan.
