Robotic Dentistry Q&A

What is robotic dentistry?

Robotic dentistry uses advanced technologies to help plan and guide various oral health procedures. At Pierce Robotics, Dr. Pierce uses the Yomi® robot-assisted surgical system by Neocis.

Yomi is unique in that it incorporates digital scanning and 3D-guided implant technology. Dr. Pierce uses these tools to precisely plan the placement of dental implants, ensuring precision, accuracy, and positive treatment outcomes. 

Is robotic dentistry new?

Yes. Robotic dentistry is a relatively new invention, but it’s taking off quickly. Research suggests that more than one million Americans receive robot-assisted medical care each year and that number continues to grow. 

Yomi is the first and only robotic dentistry system available in the United States. It’s undergone extensive testing and review and has a proven track record of success. 

Does robotic dentistry replace my actual dentist?

No. Robotic dentistry doesn’t replace Dr. Pierce. Instead, it compliments his training and expertise by allowing for greater accuracy and more precise implant placement. When combined, these factors ensure quicker recovery times, lower risk of complications, and promote longer-lasting outcomes. 

Dr. Pierce is in control throughout the entire implant placement procedure. He uses the Yomi system as a trusted assistant. 

What does robotic surgery involve?

Robotic surgery begins with an in-office consultation. Dr. Pierce conducts an oral exam and asks about your goals for treatment. Then, he takes digital impressions of your mouth with an intraoral scanner.

Dr. Pierce uploads your impressions to a computer design program and uses it to develop a customized treatment plan. After approving a plan, he uses the software to guide the placement of your dental implants, ensuring optimal results.

Is robotic surgery safe?

Robotic surgery is safe and well-tolerated. Before the procedure, Dr. Pierce administers a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. After placing your implants, he writes a prescription for pain medication and provides you with care instructions.

The first few days following your procedure, it’s normal to experience some pain, swelling, and sensitivity. Eat soft foods for the first 48 hours, take your medication as prescribed, and attend each subsequent checkup.
