New technologies are revolutionizing implant dentistry services in the Bay Area
Many patients in the Bay Area think they understand how dental implants work as a replacement tooth option. They expect several treatment sessions and many months of waiting before they finally have a complete smile. In some cases, they’re right. The traditional method of placing a dental implants involves the following series of steps:
- First, the dental implant, also known as a replacement tooth root made out of titanium, is placed into the jawbone.
- Next, the bone must heal and grow around the metal post so that it becomes stable and secure. That process can take several months.
- Once the bone has healed a replacement tooth, or a crown, is placed on the metal post.
While this method of dental implant treatment has been effective, many patients find the long process to be more than just a little bit of an inconvenience. Let’s face it. When it’s a better smile or a boost of confidence that we want, no one wants to wait many months to achieve it.
Now, patients in the Bay Area have another option. By turning to the trusted team at the Center for Implant Dentistry, patients can achieve the same great smile with a replacement tooth, or teeth, that function just like natural teeth in far less time, often in one appointment. Not only do Dr. Sambhav (Sam) Jain and his team of dentists, have advanced training in implants, they also offer technology not found in other dental offices in the Bay Area. Furthermore, with three implantologists working full time, there are no long delays while you wait for an appointment.
For example, with a state-of-the-art 3-Dimensional CAT Scan Machine, the Center for Implant Dentistry team can get a high-definition, 3D image of the patient’s teeth and mouth. This helps Dr. Jain know exactly what to expect before surgery begins, therefore minimizing risks, or surprises. Other examples of technologies that help our doctors plan the implant surgery include the Intraoral Scanner and Digital X-Rays. The Intraoral scanner eliminates many problems encountered with traditional impressions while x-rays taken with digital technology allow clear images and immediate review.
Finally, using the CAD/CAM system allows the team to create replacement teeth in a single visit rather than needing to wait for impressions to be sent to a dental lab. Along with being a renowned dentist, Dr. Jain also has a Master’s degree in Engineering. Using the training in these two areas, Dr. Jain is expertly skilled at using the CAD/CAM system to create beautiful restorations. The level of skill and technology at our office is unlike any other in the region.
