Dental Robotics

We are excited to be the first in Eastern North Carolina to introduce a new level of care with robotic assistance for our patients.  Yomi gives our dental team important information on your teeth and jaws that helps us provide you with personalized treatment for your specific needs. The system will robotically guide the physicians hand to achieve that plan. The technology allows Dr. Arauz to adapt the plan per his expertise and patient care needs. Yomi empowers our dental team to provide you with personalized, precise, enhanced patient care.

Yomi Patient FAQs

What is Yomi-Enabled Surgery?

Yomi provides assistance to the dental surgeon in planning and placing your implants. Yomi provides dental surgeons with robotic guidance during surgery. This helps your dental team place your implant precisely for a natural look and feel.

Are robotic procedures new?
Robotic assistance is becoming a standard of care in medicine, used to help over one million patients every year[1]. Yomi is the first and only system for robotic guidance for dental surgery in the United States.

Does Yomi replace my dental surgeon?
Yomi does not replace your dental surgeon. Yomi gives your dental surgeon helpful assistance. The dental surgeon holds onto and directs the Yomi instruments. Yomi combines your dental surgeon’s skill with the benefits of robotic surgery.

What can I expect with Yomi surgery?
If Yomi is right for you, your dental team will create a custom treatment plan with Yomi software. During surgery, Yomi will assist your dental surgeon. Yomi will provide important information that your dental surgeon can feel, hear and see.

What are other ways my dentist may place my dental implant?

Free-hand is the traditional technique for dental implant surgery. In free-hand surgery, the surgeon uses a hand-held instrument to place your implant. The surgeon places the implant after looking closely at your bone, gums, and nearby teeth. Exact implant placement can sometimes be challenging with free-hand surgery. Printed or milled surgical guides fit to your teeth with guide holes for the implant. Guides do not allow the surgeon to make changes to the plan during surgery. This may result in delays to complete your surgery. Sometimes surgical guides may not work well due to poor fit. This may also result in delays to complete your surgery. Guides may not be a good option for hard-to-reach areas. However, guides may make it easier to place your implants in exactly the right place. Like Yomi-Enabled Surgery, physical guides may also allow for less invasive surgery. These are some reasons surgeons may recommend guides.
