Robotic Help for Dental Implants


Dentists, meet Yomi. The FDA recently cleared the first robotic system for dental implant procedures. Through the use of haptic technology, Yomi can assist dentists in both the pre-operative and intra-operative parts of dental surgery.

Thanks to an initial CT scan, the system can then provide dynamic surgical planning. During the surgery, Yomi will guide the dentists like a GPS, providing visual guidance and physical guidance. This way, the drill’s position, orientation and depth won’t vary from what has been planned, unless the dentist decides to make a change.

Neocis, the Miami-based company behind Yomi, is a privately held company that, among other investors, has been funded by Fred Moll, the robotic surgery pioneer who co-founded Intuitive Surgical.
