Do all providers of dental implants in California have the same qualifications?
Any dentist licensed to practice in California can legally perform the dental implant procedure. However, according to a recent report in Dentistry Today, only eight to ten percent of general dentists place implants. Even those who choose to place dental implants may only do a few each year. At Center for Implant Dentistry, our primary focus is on delivering superior dental implants to California residents. Our doctors have advanced training and a great deal of experience. We handle simple, single tooth implants, and very complex cases referred by other dentists. Our facility on Walnut Avenue in Fremont has the latest equipment for accurate diagnosis, planning, fabrication, and placement.
Training, credentials, and experience
Dr. Sabhav Jain has extensive background in mechanical engineering, including CAD/CAM technology. This knowledge is critical to each stage of dental implantation. In addition to a degree in dentistry from University of Connecticut Dental School, Dr. Jain earned the title of Master from the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). Mastership is granted to only a small percentage of members of the ICOI, based on the number of implant cases handled and their hours of continuing education in surgical procedures. Dr. Arpana Gupta is also a Master in the ICOI, and Dr. Shivani Gupta has Fellowship status in the ICOI. Together, they perform hundreds of dental implants each year, with an incredible success rate.
A cornerstone of Center for Implant Dentistry is providing all care related to the dental implant procedure, under one roof. We have invested in a great deal of technology to ensure the most comfortable, precise, and efficient treatment for our patients. The following is only a partial list. It provides some examples of the sophisticated equipment we have on site:
- 3-D CAT scan machine for accurate diagnosis and planning.
- CEREC CAD/CAM milling machine to create crowns.
- Computer-guided surgical software that virtually walks the dentist through the entire procedure.
- Laser and piezoelectric surgical techniques mean a scalpel is rarely needed.
- Surgical operating microscope allows the dentist to view fine details of the soft tissue, teeth, and bone not visible to the naked eye.
