Texas periodontist begins using dental implant robot

Round Rock, Texas-based periodontist Ali Arastu, DMD, has begun using the Yomi robot for dental implants, CBS Austin reported May 18.

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

The robot is guided by a programmed plan, but the dentist can change the plan and is in charge of the drill during the procedure. The robot is also able to monitor and track patient movements and adjust to them, the report said.

"We want patients to know, like look, we're also evolving. We're not going to stay behind the times," Dr. Arastu told CBS Austin.
