MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neocis Inc. today announced that the company has completed the first sale of Yomi®, a robotic guidance system for dental implant procedures, to the South Florida Center for Periodontics and Implant Dentistry in Boca Raton, Fla. The system has been installed, and training has been completed for Dr. Jeffrey Ganeles, Dr. Fred Norkin, and Dr. Liliana Aranguren.
“We are excited to incorporate Yomi into our practice,” said Dr. Ganeles. “Adopting state-of-the-art technology is part of our commitment to providing the very best care for our patients. Yomi ensures that the procedure goes precisely as planned. There is nothing else like it, and I believe it will be a game-changer for our practice.”
An additional sale has been completed to Dr. Nima Massoomi, an oral surgeon practicing in San Francisco with San Francisco Surgical Arts.
“I have always believed that guided surgery is fundamental to providing the best care for my patients,” said Dr. Massoomi. “Yomi will enable me to use guidance while still allowing me the flexibility to adjust to intra-operative information.”
“We are thrilled to see such strong interest in our limited commercial release of Yomi,” said Alon Mozes, Ph.D., CEO and Co-founder of Neocis. “We look forward to demonstrating the use of the system at the Academy of Osseointegration annual meeting.”
Neocis will be demonstrating the system at booth #1501 at the Academy of Osseointegration (AO) annual meeting in Orlando, Fla. March 16-18, 2017.
Yomi has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for use with dental implant surgery.
Yomi is a computerized navigational system intended to provide assistance in both the planning (pre-operative) and the surgical (intra-operative) phases of dental implantation surgery. The system provides software to preoperatively plan dental implantation procedures and provides navigational guidance of the surgical instruments. Yomi delivers physical guidance through the use of haptic robotic technology, which constrains the drill in position, orientation, and depth. This assistive technology leaves the surgeon in control at all times. Unlike plastic surgical guides, Yomi allows for clear visualization of the surgical site and enables the surgeon to dynamically change the plan.
