YOMI | Robot-Assisted Dental Implant Surgery Q&A

What is Yomi?
Yomi is a groundbreaking robotic surgical system – the only one of its kind – that we use for dental implant surgery. It combines several advanced technologies to assist clinicians in planning and executing implant placement. Yomi helps our team place implants with a high degree of accuracy and efficiency, which contributes to beautiful new smiles with a natural 
look and feel.

What role does Yomi play in my procedure?
If robot-guided surgery is right for you, our clinical team will use Yomi’s software to create your custom treatment plan. The doctor will gather important information about your teeth, jaw, and soft tissue from your CT scan, so they can plan the desired location, angulation, and depth of the implant. During your procedure, Yomi assists the clinician via multisensory feedback to make sure the implant is placed with unsurpassed accuracy. If changes are called for during surgery, Yomi makes this possible. 

Is Yomi autonomous? Does it operate on its own?
Yomi is an advanced robotic system, but it’s not autonomous. The doctor is in control of the robot at all times. Yomi is simply there to guide them via physical feedback, on-screen alerts, and audio cues. Rather than replacing the clinician, Yomi compliments their surgical skills and expertise with the many benefits of precision robotics.

Is robot-assisted surgery new?
Robotic surgical systems have been in use for more than 30 years and have become the standard of care for many diagnostic and therapeutic procedures across a wide range of medical disciplines. Yomi is the first and only FDA-cleared robotic system for dental surgery and has been in use since 2016. As of the fall of 2022, more than 20,000 dental implants have been placed with the help of Yomi.

Is my doctor experienced in this type of treatment?
Yes, they are very experienced in robot-guided surgery. He/she has performed roughly X robot-assisted cases and placed more than X implants using the Yomi system.

Is robot-guided implant placement minimally invasive?
Because robot-assisted implantology involves using 3D digital imaging in the planning phase, it allows clinicians to “see below the gums,” often eliminating the need to cut into soft tissue to visualize the bone. In many cases, Yomi can be used to perform less invasive treatment, which allows for smaller or no incisions, a faster recovery, and minimized swelling and pain.
