Robot-Assisted Dental Implant Surgery in San Francisco and San Leandro, CA
AI-Guided: Yomi Robotic Dental Implants
The San Francisco Dental Group uses the latest technologies in every aspect of dental care. Nowhere is this more apparent than in our use of the Yomi Robot implant system for dental implant placement. Yomi guided technology provides AI guidance when placing dental implants. The result is a more precise placement for greater success rates and better fit.
What is Yomi Robotic Surgery?
The Yomi guided implant system is a computer-guided system that improves our surgeons’ ability to place each dental implant in the jawbone with incredible precision. The patient’s jaw, teeth, bone structure, and oral cavity are scanned using CBCT imaging. Yomi uses these images to create a map of the area, indicating the best possible location for each implant placement. The strength, shape, density of the jawbone, location of other teeth, and facial structure of the patient are all considered using propriety Yomi software. Our surgeons can place the implants quickly and accurately, minimizing time in the dental chair, pain, and bleeding.
Our surgeons are in control of the Yomi robot at all times. The Yomi guided technology is another tool in our surgeons’ medical kits providing enhanced accuracy and eliminating human error or miscalculation. With Yomi robotic placement, smaller implants can be used, healing time is decreased, and the results are exceptional.
How Does the Yomi Robotic System Work?
Yomi uses data from CBCT scans to create physical cues. These cues guide the surgeon’s hand to the exact location and angle for optimal implant placement. The AI system stabilizes the surgeon’s hand via a handpiece that prevents unintended shifting from the placement blueprint, tracking patient movement for added safety. Yomi automatically stops drilling when the surgeon has achieved proper depth for implant placement. Audio cues and visual confirmation are displayed on the monitor of the Yomi chair-side computer for complete understanding and control at all times.
The Yomi dental implant placement system allows our surgeons to adapt quickly, seamlessly accommodating unforeseen clinical developments. This combination of surgical experience and robotic precision provides the highest level of care possible with shorter recovery times.
Why SF Dental Group Offers Yomi Robotic Dental Implant Surgery
AI-guided dental implant surgery does not replace surgeons. The technology and computer software used by Yomi are tools that enhance implant surgery results and minimize the procedure time required. Our surgeons can proceed confidently, knowing nothing has been missed and that your procedure will be less invasive and more precise. This translates to less time sedated, quicker recovery, and the assurance your dental implants will not fail.
Quick and Efficient Treatment
No one enjoys sitting in the dental chair. The Yomi guidance system provides incredibly detailed images of the patient’s entire mouth and jawbone, something our surgeons cannot get with traditional x-rays. These crisper, more three-dimensional images give a complete representation of every centimeter of the area, significantly reducing the chance of missing anything. With Yomi Robotic Dental Implant Surgery, your procedure will be over before you know it.
Although incisions are needed to place any implant, these incisions are smaller. They bleed less when the Yomi system is used. Less bone is damaged during the drilling process, resulting in faster recovery and less likelihood of infection or rejection of the implants.
Yomi gives our surgeons a view of your oral cavity, jawbone, and teeth not possible with the human eye. These 3D images give them a 360-degree view of the implant site for placement that is unmatched for accuracy and secure fit.
Comfort With Yomi Guided Implant Surgery
Less time in the dental chair means many patients can have their implant procedure done without sedation that lingers for hours after surgery. We are often able to do Yomi guided implant surgery using a local anesthetic to numb the area and nitrous oxide to calm the patient. As a result, you feel like yourself shortly after surgery with no lingering after-effects from IV anesthesia or general sedation.
The safety of Yomi robotic dental implant surgery is unparalleled. It is the only FDA-cleared system for robot-assisted dental implant surgery, meeting stringent guidelines for safety and efficacy.
We are one of the few practices in the San Francisco area using the Yomi guided system for dental implant surgery. If you are considering dental implants, keep in mind that Yomi provides greater safety, rapid healing, and beautiful results.
