Robot for teeth surgery

Israeli start-up Tactile Technologies wants to put a robot in your mouth.

The company recently obtained US Food and Drug Administration marketing approval for its novel dental implant location software, a 3D surgery planning solution.

The Implant Location System (ILS) uses a disposable micro-robot for carrying out dental implant procedures.

The bone-sensing technology enables precision measurement of bone tissue covered by soft tissue, without the need for invasive surgical procedures. ILS applies tactile sensing technology to offer intra-oral image-guided navigation specifically for dentists.
