YOMI equipment

Yomi Robot-Assisted Dental Surgery ​ is the first and only robot-assisted dental surgery system to be commercially available in the United States and is in clinical use with leading dental surgeons. ​Yomi ​ is cleared by the FDA in the United States as a computerized navigational system intended to provide assistance in both the planning and the surgical phases of dental implantation surgery. Yomi delivers physical guidance through the use of haptic robotic technology, which constrains the drill in position, orientation, and depth.

Free-hand dental implant surgery.

Free-hand is the traditional technique for dental implant surgery. In free-hand surgery, the surgeon uses a hand-held instrument to place your implant. The surgeon places the implant after looking closely at your bone, gums, and nearby teeth. Exact implant placement can sometimes be more difficult with free-hand surgery due to human error.

YOMI in action

Surgical guides fit to your teeth with guide holes for the implant. Guides do not allow the surgeon to make changes to plan during surgery. This may result in delays to complete your surgery. Sometimes surgical guides may not work well due to poor fit. This may also result in delays to complete your surgery. Guides may not be a good option for hard to-reach areas. However, guides may make it easier to place your implants in exactly the right place. Guides may also allow for less invasive surgery. These are some reasons surgeons may recommend guides.
