At the CES in Las Vegas, a robot specializing in dental implants will demonstrate what it can do. Its use should not only make work easier for dentists, but also make the procedure shorter, less painful and as gentle as possible for patients.
Strictly speaking, Yomi is a computerized robotic navigation system. It consists of a robotic arm with instruments that does not work independently, but is guided by the dentist. A guide arm supports them and provides haptic feedback if they deviate from the plan previously created with the help of the system. According to Neocis, dental implants can be used far more precisely than usual.
According to the manufacturer, the robotic assistance can shorten treatments that could otherwise take months to one day. Due to the high precision, operations should also be possible with smaller incisions and without any seams. All in all, Yomi should not only make the work of dentists easier, but also make the procedure less painful for patients and lead to faster recovery.
