Dental implants in Dedham: All on X and same day implants
How Does Robot-Assisted Dental Implant Technology Work?
The Yomi robotic guidance system is an advanced tool that helps provide a better overall implant treatment for our patients. Using a robotic arm and a special computer program, our Yomi robotic guidance system helps Dr. Vishart and Dr. Cifuni to ensure the proper placement, angle, and depth for every dental implant that’s placed at Digital Dental Studio.
The way it works is relatively simple to understand. Dr. Vishart and Dr. Cifuni will develop a dental implant treatment plan for you based on your specific needs, and this will be uploaded to our Yomi robotic guidance system. This system holds the handpiece that Dr. Cifuni will use to cut away bone material and make room for your dental implant.
Once the procedure begins at our Dedham dental office, the Yomi system tracks the position of the handpiece relative to your mouth, guiding it into place and ensuring that Dr. Cifuni follows your treatment plan precisely. It uses haptic feedback and a graphic display that helps both Dr. Vishart and Dr. Cifuni track the location of the handpiece and your surgical site, and prevents deviation from your treatment plan.
Basically, you can think of our Yomi robotic-assisted dental implant technology as another set of guiding hands. While Dr. Vishart is fully capable of placing dental implants without it, this guided technology provides unbeatable precision and better overall patient outcomes at Digital Dental Studio.
Dental Implants in a day
Single missing teeth can be replaced the same day depending on your specific case. Living another day without a full smile is unnecessary with our cutting-edge technology.
Full Arch Dental Implants
Struggling with dentures or many missing teeth? In most cases you can obtain a full smile fixed restoration in one visit. A team composed of a surgeon, a restorative dentist and a lab technician will restore you complete dentition in as little as a 4 hours.
Implant Supported Dentures
Are a great alternative to traditional dentures because the prosthesis is held in place with maximum stability aided by two implants that provide anchorage to hold the prosthesis in increasing comfort and security.
Yomi Robotic Guided Surgery
This technology allows Dr. Cifuni to safely place dental implants with the highest precision and accuracy. Robotic surgery is becoming the standard of care in medicine and now we’re making it available in dentistry at our Dedham office.
Your own power to heal L-PRF
Your own blood is used to isolate natural components (growth factors, white blood cells and fibrin) which assist in bone regeneration and enhance recovery. A natural choice pure and simple.
Laser assisted new attachment procedure.
An FDA-cleared laser treatment that offers a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery. This is the only scientifically, research proven methodology that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment.
Advantages Of Our Dental Implant Technology
So, why is our Yomi robotic guidance system so useful? It offers patients a lot of unique benefits. First, it prevents the removal of any tissue that’s not required by the treatment plan, and physically stops the dental handpiece when adequate bone has been removed and the proper treatment depth has been met.
This enhanced precision helps reduce the overall invasiveness of the procedure. Less bone tissue is removed to place your implant. This can help with the process of implant fusion with the bone (osseointegration), and also reduces the overall healing and recovery time.
Beyond these short-term benefits, our Yomi robotic implant assistance technology also helps provide you with better overall outcomes for your implant. The angle, placement, and depth of the implant can be calculated with extreme precision. This allows for a lower overall risk of complications while you heal and recover, and helps strengthen the implant, ensuring long-lasting results.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
This mostly depends on how well you care for your implant after your treatment at Digital Dental Studio. If you maintain good oral hygiene, see the dentist regularly, and eliminate risk factors for complications (such as smoking or other types of oral tobacco use), your implant may last you for the rest of your life. More than 90% of dental implants are still intact after 30 years.
This makes dental implants the longest-lasting method of tooth replacement. If you want to permanently replace one or more missing teeth, dental implants from Dr. Vishart at Digital Dental Studio are an excellent choice.
What is All On X?
All On X is an innovative surgical solution for those who have lost most, if not all of their teeth or suffer from loose dentures.
This innovative technique is a surgical treatment option for replacing a full set of teeth in the upper or lower (or both) jaw with dental titanium implants placed precisely at strategic positions and at certain angle. This will serve as a solid foundation to support a fixed full bridge that is natural looking, stable, durable and stays permanently fixed in place providing the functionality and bite quality that you would expect from natural teeth.
What are the benefits and advantages?
Unlike dentures this treatment prevents future bone loss in the jaw. By preserving the existing bone, you can maintain your facial structure and have a permanent solution if you need to replace an entire row of teeth.
Benefits of this procedure include:
- Little downtime - You don’t need multiple dental visits or surgeries, it can be done in just one day with a single surgery, and you can have a natural-looking and complete restoration of all your missing teeth.
- Permanent fix - Unlike dentures, which might move or fall out, All On X dental implants will not loosen or move with time.
- Complete teeth replacement - You can have the smile you’ve always wanted. Adjusting the size and color of your teeth to fit your tastes.
- Natural and comfortable appearance - All On X dental implants are completely fused with your jawbone and gum line, so they function like natural teeth. Only those you tell will know that you have a set of fixed prosthetic teeth.
- They are cost effective compared to other forms of treatment such as dentures and partial bridges.
Conventional dental implants Vs. All On X
For the traditional implant is one implant per tooth, or you will need a minimum of eight implants to support a full denture. With the All On X procedure the implants are placed in strategic areas of the mouth allowing it to support a full screwed retained bridge. This procedure is cost effective and you see immediate results.
For traditional dental implants, it takes time for the implants to fuse with the jawbone. This typically means that you’ll have to wait several months before you can permanent dentures. The All On X procedure often eliminates this wait; in many cases, the implants will be able to support the weight of temporary dentures right away. That way you’ll have new teeth to speak, eat, and smile with until your mouth is ready to receive your permanent dentures.
Many patients may also need bone grafts before they can receive dental implants. This bone loss occurs in the jaw due to a lack of stimulation from the now-missing teeth. However, with the All on X procedure since our goal is to place six implants, we can use four in which we can achieve stability and graft, and leave the other implants healing without loading.
For these reasons patients find this cutting-edge implant procedure preferable, less time consuming and with almost immediate results.
Can anything go wrong with All On X?
All On X dental implants have a very high success rate. But like with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications such as:
- Dental implants not integrating due to factors such as smoking, poor bone density, nutrition, or pre-existing health conditions.
- Surgical complications such as infection, poor healing, extensive or discomfort.
- While rare, dental implants can fail.
Several factors can affect the success of All On X dental implants, including:
- Poor oral hygiene after treatment.
- Plaque build-up, which can lead to periodontal disease, bone loss, and ultimately, implant failure.
- Smoking, which prevents proper healing.
- Teeth grinding, which mainly impacts the longevity of the fixed bridge.
If you are considering an All On X procedure, we do recommend you work with a trusted dentist who is trained in surgical and aesthetic dentistry. Ensuring you’ll have the best outcome, both in function and achieving beautiful results.
