"Dental implant treatment requires attention to many factors to ensure success," Dr. Gutt explained. "These include the location, angle, and depth of the implant. With YOMI®, precision and accuracy are enhanced using state-of-the-
"Robotic assisted surgery is becoming more common in hospitals for medical procedures,"
Developed by Neocis, YOMI® is the first and only FDA-cleared robot-assisted dental surgery implant placement system. The system provides Dr. Gutt with visual, auditory and touch feedback. Dr. Gutt remains in full control and in direct contact with the instruments and the patient.
With YOMI®'s assistance, Dr. Gutt places dental implants in the precise, previously planned location using a minimally invasive technique—a small opening in the gum tissue. This approach means faster recovery after surgery. This advanced system also helps ensure the ideal placement of the replacement tooth at the restorative phase.
Another advantage of YOMI® is that it saves time. "Before I introduced this high-tech system," Dr. Gutt explained, "it was often necessary to take an impression and send it to a dental laboratory to fabricate a surgical guide. With YOMI® not only is this step eliminated but accuracy is improved. It is now possible with proper scheduling to plan a case and place dental implants the same day."
The YOMI® system assists Dr. Gutt in placing one implant or multiple implants. "We have routinely placed dental implants to support an entire arch of replacement teeth. Now we take advantage of the computer precision that YOMI® provides for all implant cases, including complete arches."
Asked how patients are responding to YOMI®, Dr. Gutt reports very positive reactions. "Patients love it," he said. "They often comment that dental implant placement was quick and easy. I also work with many outstanding dentists who are enthusiastic about this new technology that offers so many benefits to their patients."
Dr. Gutt has offices in Miami Beach and Key West, Florida. The practice is accepting new patients. Dr. Gutt may be contacted through his website, www.southfloridaperio.com
