Introducing Yomi Robotic technology

Yomi has changed implant dentistry. It is a robotic guidance system for dental surgery. Yomi gives dental implant surgeons real-time multi-sensory guidance. It is great in assisting our doctors to have pinpoint accuracy and precision when placing your implants during your procedure. With the Yomi system, not only will your procedure be quick, but your recovery time will be lessened as well.

Yomi offers critical insights to assist with personalized surgical planning and guides the dentist’s hand throughout the implant procedure, while allowing for dynamic adjustments per the dentist’s clinical expertise. It also provides a minimally invasive approach, leading to faster surgery and faster recovery with less pain for a patient. Robotic haptic guidance gives the accuracy, precision, and intraoperative flexibility of robotic surgical platforms. Additionally, it aids in excellent visibility in the surgical field that boosts the surgeon’s confidence that you cannot get anywhere else. Hence, in a nutshell, it allows the surgeon to know exactly which direction to go to place the implant properly.

Our CT-scan is designed to be medical grade, typically used in head and neck surgery practices rather than ordinary dental practices. This produces high-definition 3D scans so we can plan your dental implant procedure or other dental treatment more precisely and efficiently than ever before. This latest cone beam CT technology allows us to view all of your teeth and the surrounding bone in 3D. These features make our office particularly unique since our CT scan works in partnership with our YOMI robot and provides extremely precise measures to achieve the highest quality surgical results. Compared to traditional X-rays, cone beam CT scans lead to much more effective identification and diagnosis of oral problems.

Intravenous sedation helps patients get their treatment done while they are asleep. When they wake up, their treatment is complete and they don’t even remember it. It is very rare for a dentist to get IV certification and we are fortunate that Dr. Ali is a certified intravenous sedation provider.

Tooth loss and damage to the jaw bone and tissues are often challenging for your dentist during oral surgery or implant placement. Without enough support in the jaw bone, dental implants cannot be immediately stabilized and tissue healing can be a long process. The solution to these and other difficult situations is a new Platelet Therapy created from your own blood. Leukocyte – Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) promotes healing and bone growth from within your own body using your own blood. With a simple blood draw and an advanced technology protocol, L-PRF is individually made for you – from you. The end results are improved healing response and significantly less recovery time.

The Surgitron is an electrical surgical knife that allows for the instant cutting and coagulation of bleeding blood vessels. The Surgitron 4.0 Dual by Ellman is an operating room unit that goes far beyond the application of a regular dental office to allow for surgical procedures to be performed with much less cellular damage than surgery done by other electrosurgical units. Several research studies show that there is 73% less thermal spread with ellman® than with the Bovie® or ValleyLab® low-frequency generators. The research studies show a statistically significant advantage for the Surgitron® Dual by Ellman.

This device is revolutionary in bone surgery in that it provides precision, safety, perfect ergonomics, safety, and the highest quality. The Piezosurge helps make bone surgeries much safer, since nerves, blood vessels, and other soft tissue anatomical structures stay unharmed. This benefits our patients when we operate close to the mandibular nerve or the maxillary sinuses and reduces postoperative discomfort.

Laser technology benefits our patients mainly in gum and periodontal structure treatments. Laser sterilizes the gum pockets around the teeth so that post-treatment gum infection does not occur. Laser also boosts the energy of the cells in the soft tissue of the gums and release growth hormones and cytokines to aid in healing and regeneration of good tissue.

Surgical microscope is used for very precise endodontic and other delicate procedures where precision is required. One of the applications has resulted in the first systemic classification of tooth cracks and fractures. Most of these types of cracks are not visible without high magnification (16X) and would therefore go undetected even with loupes.

 An intraoral camera is an indispensable diagnostic and educational tool. The tiny video camera moves around inside of your mouth and generates a live video exam of your teeth. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental treatment by viewing what Dr. Mohamed Ali sees while having it explained to them.

 

 

 

CEREC® CAD/CAM is the epitome of modern dentistry. In just 2 hours, you can have a crown! There are no temporaries and no need for a second visit. CEREC® CAD/CAM is less invasive, provides a precise fit, and delivers durable, natural looking crowns.

The oral-cancer screening device called Velascope is used during routine examinations to detect pre-cancerous lesions. If any of our patients have any pre-cancerous trace in their mouth, we can detect it right away and advice the best way forward. This is huge for patient safety because the early discovery of oral cancer makes a huge difference in the success of cancer therapy.

 

Glycine spray under controlled pressure is proven by the dental literature to be very safe and more effective in removing the bacterial film, without causing scratches to dental enamel, root surfaces, dental implants, or any other restoration materials. Glycine also has anti-inflammatory properties which can be very beneficial to the treatment of periodontal disease. 

 

All our surgeries are medically monitored and we make sure we take full care of our patients before, during and after their treatment. The pulse oximeter placed on the fingertip will read the oxygen saturation of your blood to assure enough oxygen is getting to the brain so the surgery takes place smoothly.

Provides enhanced bonding (osseous integration) of implants to bone by treating dental implant surfaces with UV rays (photofunctionalization). Dental implants typically only have 45-55% of their surfaces active for bonding to the surrounding bone when first taken out of the vial/container. When treating dental implants with photofunctionalization, the percentage of active surfaces on dental implants more than doubles to 98.2%, which contributes to more stable implants placed in the bone and a better overall surgical and healing outcome.

Patients who have parafunctional habits (grinding and/or clenching) will unintentionally subject implants to excessive and premature stresses, which could contribute to implant failures. To provide patients with proven relaxation of overactive muscles and prevent implants from failing, we provide Botox injections to alleviate the associated risks with parafunctional habits.
