Florida dental practice 1st in region to use robot for tooth implant

The dental practice of Robert W. Payne, DDS, in Naples, Fla., is the first in Southwest Florida to offer robotic tooth implant surgery, according to an April 6 report from local news broadcaster WINK.

Dr. Payne is an oral surgeon with an interest in technology. He uses the Yomi robotic system to place the implants.

"Using the Yomi robotic system, you don't have to make an incision in the gum tissue, there's no stitches; it's quicker. Therefore, the recovery time is much faster," Dr. Payne told WINK. "There's very little, if any, discomfort, and the patient gets what they want quicker, which is a tooth."
