Perhaps you are ready to improve your smile but do not want to deal with the hassle and long-term expense associated with dentures. Dental implants are a great alternative, and your dentist has recommended the Yomi dental robotic system to aid in the procedure. If you have never heard of the Yomi system or aren't familiar with robot-assisted procedures, chances are you have a lot of questions. Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions you might have about the Yomi dental robotic system.

What Exactly Is the Yomi Dental Robotic System?

The Yomi dental robot is a state-of-the-art robot that allows your dental surgeon to place dental implants more accurately and quickly. The surgeon will use specialized software to map out exactly where to place the implants in your mouth. With the assistance of the robot, the surgeon can more precisely and quickly insert dental implants. The entire process is just as minimally invasive as a non-robot assisted procedure.

What Are the Benefits of the Yomi Dental Robotic System?

There are several benefits of your surgeon performing the procedure with the assistance of the Yomi dental robotic system. However, the biggest benefit is the accuracy provided by the robot. Your surgeon is very talented, but mistakes can happen if the patient moves even slightly during the procedure. However, the robot can provide the surgeon with a three-dimensional image of the mouth during the procedure, which helps with precision.

This precision not only helps prevent mistakes during the procedure, it can also help increase healing time and prevent unnecessary discomfort after the dental implants are inserted. Additionally, unlike traditional implant surgery that often requires several procedures, especially if you are having multiple implants placed, you are typically able to have all of your dental implants inserted in a single procedure.

How Will My Surgeon Be Involved in the Process?

Your surgeon is involved in every step of the process, from the initial consultation to performing the procedure and helping you recover. The surgeon will be present to guide the robotic mechanism and that mechanism will insert the implants. The surgeon will be able to make any adjustments that are needed to ensure the implants are efficiently inserted in far less time than it would take to complete a traditional dental implant procedure.

The Yomi dental robotic system is a revolutionary technique that will allow your surgeon to insert dental implants much more quickly and efficiently. Contact a dentist's clinic in your area such as Elite Smile Center with any additional questions.
