>4 million robotic-assisted surgeries have taken place since 2000 in a variety of medical specialities including Cardiovascular, Orthopaedics and Neurology. Yomi by Neocis is the first and only FDA approved robotic system for dental surgery, enabling dentistry to now benefit from this revolutionary technology.
Careful pre-operative planning and high levels of accuracy and precision are required to successfully place dental implants. New generation surgical robotic technology makes it easier for doctors to achieve these objectives. Neocis, the world leaders in dental robotics, has surpassed a significant milestone with its Yomi robotics system supporting the successful placement of 1000 implants in 2019.
Yomi provides computerized navigation to assist in both the planning (pre-operative) and the surgical (intra-operative) phases of dental implantation surgery. The system offers physical guidance through haptic robotic technology, which constrains the drill in position, orientation, and depth. The assistive technology provides the surgeon with complete control and, unlike plastic surgical guides, allows for clear visualization of the surgical site.
“This is an exciting milestone for Neocis,” said Alon Mozes, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Neocis. “This has been the direct result of streamlining our workflow and increasing the system functionality. We’re excited to see our increased sales and utilization further underscore the appetite for robotics in the dental industry.”
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.”
