Wanamaker Road, guides the robotic arm from a YOMI machine to Karly Baird's mouth Monday as dental assistants Shantel Kingcannon, left, and Courtney Fulton help with the demonstration. Marina was showing how the robot works to safely drill and assist in dental implants.

A new dental assistant is readily available when it comes to oral surgery and implants at Aspen Dental.

Aspen Dental, 1730 S.W. Wanamaker Road, is the very first dental business office of Topeka, now has the YOMI Robotic Dental Process by Neocis. YOMI is the initially Food and drug administration-authorized, robotic-assisted dental surgical method.

It been given Food and drug administration clearance for comprehensive arch implant cure in 2020.

Adam Marina, DDS, of Aspen Dental, claimed the improvement is critical. Marina reported patients typically are worried of the dentist, and they may transfer close to through a process.

“This won’t allow us to spot it any place but just where we put it in the laptop or computer,” Marina claimed for the duration of a demonstration of the robot to The Cash-Journal.

A three-dimensional X-Ray is taken and allows the dental team to get a a lot more realistic graphic of where by dental implants will be positioned.

How does the YOMI Robotic Dental technique work?

A computer monitor shows how CT and X-Ray scans of a patients' teeth help in aligning the YOMI robot to drill in just the right amount into a tooth for a dental implant procedure at Aspen Dental.

The Yomi works like a GPS system in encouraging Marina map out and customize a cure system customized-made for just about every patient. While undertaking so, it eradicates prediction perform and exhibits the actual depth, slicing place and needed angles to accomplish the greatest success.

“The moment we have every little thing lined up then we do a landmark to ensure where all the things is,” Marina explained. “Then, any time we area the implant, I will guide the robotic to the patient’s mouth. But it will lock in the suitable posture so that I are not able to transfer out of the proper alignment.”

Really should the affected individual transfer, the robotic arm adjusts itself automatically.

The laptop process won’t allow for for placements until finally the dentist approves. The dentist controls the drill and can transform the treatment method plan if necessary.

“What this does is it mimics what I want,” he said. “So, this just completes my treatment prepare. When you see the sum of trauma that normally receives carried out when you put an implant — you have to flap the total tissue open, see the total bone, the ridge of the jaw.

“And you have to go in there and kind of just hope that you happen to be undertaking it the correct way.”

On common, one implant takes less than an hour. A full arch can be completed in 90 minutes.

Virtually 100 methods with YOMI have been performed in a thirty day period

Although there was no drilling involved for Karly Baird, Aspen Dental dentist Adam Marina demonstrated on her Monday how the YOMI device works for dental implant procedures.

Marina claimed his dental business has carried out probably 100 treatments immediately after owning the robot for a month.

“We are essentially the to start with one particular in Kansas to have this and the initially in the full business of Aspen — and Aspen has above 1,000 offices
