YOMI® Robotic-Assistant Device for Dental Implants

ArchPoint Oral Surgery is one of the first practices in North Texas to acquire the only FDA-approved robotic device for dental implant surgery in the United States.  

ArchPoint Oral Surgery is one of the first practices in North Texas to acquire and use YOMI®, a state-of-the-art robotic surgical device for dental implant surgery.

The new technology combined with the surgeons’ exceptional approach for individual care has developed into an entirely new experience within the dental implant surgical field in North Texas.was developed by Miami-based health care start-up Neocis and has been implemented in an elite group of leading dental practices across the county, and is now being offered at ArchPoint Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Dallas. 

 “We are truly bringing the future of dentistry to Dallas with this advanced robotic technology and exceptional surgical care,” said Tom Draper DDS, MD, ArchPoint Oral Surgery. “This game changing surgical approach will lead to a new standard of care for the profession, and we are pleased to be at the forefront of this surgical movement.”

YOMI® is a robotic-assistant device intended to aid in both the pre-operative and the surgical phases of the dental implant surgery. The robot enhances patient care by providing surgeons with real-time guidance in the position, angulation, and depth of the surgical instruments. Using this minimally invasive technique – a small opening in the gum tissue- leads to faster recovery after surgery.  This advanced system also helps ensure the ideal placement of the replacement tooth at the restorative phase.

 Robotic surgery was introduced more than 20 years ago and has been used to treat millions of patients each year across multiple medical specialties, including cardiovascular, neurology, and orthopedics, and is just recently offered in the dental space through this new technology.

 “At ArchPoint Oral Surgery, our objective is to provide our patients with the very best quality of care and outcome possible, which is why we are continuously seeking new advancements in the field,” said Reed Gibbins DDS, MD, ArchPoint Oral Surgery.  “The YOMI® robot is one of the most exciting new technologies to become available to our specialty in the last decade, and we have been researching and training for years to bring it to Dallas and to share with patients and help advance our specialty.”

Alongside the acquisition, ArchPoint Oral Surgery will serve as an educational robotics partner to Texas A&M College of Dentistry and the Division of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center to provide opportunities for professors, residents, and students to train on the technology.  ArchPoint Oral Surgery will also soon be named as a “YOMI® Center of Excellence” serving as an educational hub to other dental professionals in the region.
