Robotic medical device developer Neocis said today it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Yomi robotic guidance system for dental implant procedures, touting it as the 1st of its kind to win a nod from the federal watchdog.
The Yomi is a computerized navigational system designed to assist in both pre and intra-operative phases of dental implantation surgery, the Miami, Fla.-based company said. The system operates through haptic robotic technology which constrains the drill’s position, orientation and depth and allows for visualization of the surgical site.
“Yomi is a precision instrument that makes sure your implant goes exactly where you planned to put it. I’ve done thousands of implants free-hand. Yomi will be a game changer for dental implant surgery,” Dr. Jeffrey Ganeles of the South Florida Center for Periodontics and Implant Dentistry said in prepared remarks.

“Showing my patients the benefits of robotic guidance with Yomi gives them comfort. They know they are getting state-of-the-art treatment and reliable results,” Dr. Federico Grande of the Center for Specialized Dentistry said in a prepared statement.
“We are excited to achieve this important milestone for Yomi. We look forward to further demonstrating the benefits of Yomi to the surgeon’s practice and their patients and to bringing the system to select key opinion leaders in the United States,” co-founder & CEO Alon Mozes said in a press release.
