Startup of the day
Cyberdontics, California (USA)
What’s the deal: Founded in 2017, Cyberdontics aims to automate dentistry by creating robots that provide superior restorations for crowns and fillings in less time and at lower cost than traditional dental treatment.
Cyberdontics has raised $8.3M in funding over 5 Seed rounds.
Underlying trends: Dental, Healthcare, Robotics, AI
Cyberdontics enables dentists to identify, remove and repair tooth decay with greater precision than human hands and senses.
The company’s robots are programmed to perform a diverse range of oral surgeries, beginning with time-consuming and expensive dental procedures like crowns and fillings.
Why it matters: Proper dental care is very important and, when carried out effectively, can prevent more serious problems arising in the future. However, it can be hard to find cost-efficient and effective dental care.
Our take: Who like visiting the dentist? Cyberdontics’ smart drill technology cuts the time a patient spends under the drill in half, from over an hour to only a few minutes.
But, still under development and not yet cleared by FDA, the company is likely to face tough competition from FDA-approved competitors like Yomi by Neocis.
