Neocis, a company based in Miami, Florida, just announced winning FDA clearance to introduce Yomi, the first robotically assisted dental surgical system. Yomi’s software is used to plan a procedure based on a patient’s CT scan. During the procedure, the system continuously tracks the patient and controls the direction of the drill as the clinician  advances it into tissue.

This is supposed to guarantee that the physician doesn’t stray away from the correct location, depth, and orientation of the plan, while still controlling the actual drill delivery.

The software allows for quick plan changes, if necessary, unlike surgical guides that are often pre-made for the patient ahead of time. Moreover, since there are no guides, the working view is not as obstructed.

  1. The FDA Approval at the moment is only a minor achievement at the moment. It is true that robotic surgeries are starting to emerge in medical sciences but I think it is too early to think about relying upon robots. The humans still have the ability to take decisions and critical changes during the course of procedure, but robots will just follow the instructions passed to them. That’s why the dentists still need to do their work with more attention before recommending their patients to go for any dental surgeries.
