What is Robot-Assisted Implant Dentistry?
The YOMI system consists of two major components: a robotic arm and a real-time visual guidance system. After we scan your mouth, special software is used to plan the procedure. While Dr. Steele is performing the surgery, the arm keeps track of his movements to make sure that he is following the treatment plan. Throughout the procedure, the arm will adjust its position to avoid damaging any oral structures and make the implant placement as accurate as possible.
Benefits of Robot-Assisted Dental Implants
The planning software used by the YOMI system improves efficiency to the point where it is sometimes possible to perform same-day implant surgery, thus dramatically decreasing the wait time for new teeth. Enhanced precision allows us to perform the surgery with smaller incisions, to the point that sutures may not even be necessary afterwards. And of course, a robotic-guided system lowers the risk of complications by helping us place implants exactly where they need to go.
Is Robot-Assisted Dental Implant Surgery Painful?
As with traditional freehand implant surgery, robot-assisted surgeries involve little to no discomfort, as the mouth is numbed before the treatment begins. Swelling and soreness normally occur afterwards, but you’ll experience less discomfort after a robot-assisted procedure due to the fact it allows for minimally invasive treatment. If you do notice an unusual level of pain after your surgery, or if your discomfort grows worse over time, let us know immediately so that we can help.
Does Dental Insurance Cover Robot-Assisted Surgery?
Not all dental insurance payment plans offer the same coverage for implants. Some will pay for the surgery while others do not. Regardless of the use of robot-assisted surgery, you’ll need to check on the specifics of your policy to see how your benefits apply. If your policy does help pay for implants, we’ll help file the insurance claims on your behalf so that you can claim your benefits. We can also discuss additional payment options.
