North Carolina periodontist uses dental implant robot

Samuel DeAngelo, DDS, a periodontist in Cary, N.C., is using the Yomi Robotic Dental System to perform dental implant surgery, Spectrum News 1 reported Sept. 21.

The Yomi Robotic Dental System is the only FDA-cleared robot-assisted dental surgery system in the U.S.

"The day of surgery, I have very little stress because I know where it's going to be, I know where the implant is going to go, and I know any challenges I have in advance," Dr. DeAngelo told Spectrum News 1.

Five dental practices and specialists in North Carolina are using the Yomi robot, according to Spectrum News 1.
