    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.
