Extractions for Bloomfield Hills and Beyond

June 3, 2014

When a patient replaces remaining teeth with an implant-supported bridge, partial, or denture, one of the first steps in the process is an extraction procedure. During an extraction procedure, Dr. Banda will remove predetermined teeth in his office to make way for your future restoration.

Of course, this isn’t the only reason a patient might need an extraction procedure. Dentists also use them to remove wisdom teeth, prepare young patients for orthodontic care, and to treat impaction. But many of the patients Dr. Banda sees are having teeth extracted as part of the implant process.

We make sure your extraction procedure is comfortable and stress-free by thoroughly explaining what will happen in advance and offering a sedation option. Knowing exactly what to expect from your procedure will help you feel confident about Dr. Banda’s treatment plan for you, while sedation dentistry will remove any anxiety you might feel on the day of your appointment.

Dr. Banda offers two forms of sedation dentistry: oral conscious and IV sedation. We’ll base our recommendation on your medical history and the procedure you’ll be having that day. Both are excellent options.

Surgical Care from Dr. Banda

May 3, 2014

Dr. Banda is an experience oral surgeon in Bloomfield Hills. He offers exceptional implant care, plus surgical care for other issues related to implant dentistry. Examples of this include:

  • Extractions
  • Hard and Soft Tissue Contouring
  • Bone Grafts
  • Sinus Lifts
  • Sub-Antral Augmentation

In the next few posts, we’re going to look at each one and explain what relationship they have with dental implants. For the rest of this post, we want to talk more about dental implants and how unique it is that Dr. Banda places and restores them.

Few restorative services are as effective as dental implants. What makes them so effective? It has to do with how they’re structured. Our natural teeth have a crown on top, which is the part that’s visible above your gums, and a root underneath that anchors the tooth to the jaw. When you lose a tooth, you lose both parts.

Dental implants restore what you’ve lost with a new, custom-made crown, bridge, partial, or full denture anchored by one or more titanium implant posts, which act like prosthetic roots. But besides anchoring your new teeth to your smile, your implants will also nourish your jaw by stimulating the growth of new bone tissue—the second important job of tooth roots.

Bloomfield Hills Restorative Dentistry

April 3, 2014

For many of us, there will come a time when your smile needs extra help. When that time comes, we hope you’ll choose Dr. Banda for your restorative dentistry needs. Dr. Banda brings years of experience and a sense of compassion to the care he provides to his patients from Bloomfield Hills and beyond.

Among the restorative dentistry services that Dr. Banda offers is dental implants. This great service can help patients who have lost one or more teeth restore what they’ve lost and enjoy both natural appearance and functionality. That’s because of how dental implants work.

Dental implants support crowns, bridges, partials and dentures, using titanium implant posts. These posts act like prosthetic roots. What’s more, because titanium is a biocompatible metal, your post(s) will fuse with the jaw over time and promote bone growth.

As effective as dental implants are, though, they aren’t right for every patient. Do you want to know if dental implants can help you? Schedule an appointment with Dr. Banda of Cranbrook Dental Care in Bloomfield Hills. During your visit, we can help you understand your options and choose a treatment that will work for you.

Call us today for an appointment. Dr. Banda offers restorative dentistry to patients from Bloomfield Hills, Royal Oak, Clarkston, Troy, and Birmingham.

Natural Functionality with Dental Implants

March 3, 2014

Do you know what the difference between traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures is? The answer is simple—natural functionality. Traditional restorative services do a good job of filling in the gaps in a patient’s smile, but they don’t do anything about a patient’s missing tooth roots.

Dental implants, on the other hand, do. They’re structured like natural teeth with a crown on top and a titanium implant underneath. The implant acts like a prosthetic root. Because titanium is a biocompatible metal, the post will eventually bond with the bone in your jaw to create a strong, natural foundation.

There are two phases to a dental implant procedure. In the first phase, one or more implant posts will be surgically placed in your jaw. Then, after your implant has had time to bond with your jaw, your new crown, bridge, partial denture, or full denture can be attached. The entire procedure can take a few months to complete, but the result is a smile that will look and function like a natural smile.

Find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants with a consultation at Cranbrook Dental Care. During your visit, Dr. Banda will assess your needs and recommend a personalized treatment plan. Call us today for an appointment. We serve patients from Bloomfield Hills, Royal Oak, Clarkston, Troy, and Birmingham.


Why Are Tooth Roots Important?

February 3, 2014

When you have one or more missing teeth, speaking clearly and enjoying a broadly nutritious diet can be difficult. By replacing your missing teeth, you can speak clearer and enjoy more of the foods you used to eat.

But those aren’t the only two reasons you should replace your missing teeth. When you have missing teeth, you’re also missing the roots that anchored them to your jaw. Those roots served the important job of promoting bone growth. When one or more roots are missing, the jaw will lose bone tissue. Over time, if enough tissue is lost, you may lose any remaining teeth you have.

Dental implants can help prevent this. That’s because they come with a “prosthetic root” made of titanium, which is a biocompatible metal. These “roots” will bond with the tissue in your jaw over time and promote new bone growth. The result is not just a full smile, but a full smile with a firm, natural foundation.

Do you want to know if dental implants are right for you? Dr. Banda would be happy to consult with you. During your visit, he will perform a thorough oral exam to determine what your options are and then recommend a specific treatment plan.

Celebrate 2014 with Dental Implants!

January 6, 2014

Being insecure about your smile is never an easy thing to deal with. When you are not confident about your smile, everything else seems to fall to the waist side. You may be hesitant to laugh with your friends, smile, or be around other people. Though it may feel as though there is no relief to your smile insecurities, our very own Dr. David G. Banda is able to restore your smile to perfection with dental implants.

Dental implants are a wonderful option for those who want to permanently change their smile. The process begins with a consultation with Dr. Banda. There, he will be able to fully assess your smile, discuss your long term goals, as well as address any concerns or questions you may have. If you are considered a candidate for dental implants, Dr. Banda will surgically install a screw-like implant into your jaw bone. This provides stability for your new teeth, as well as prevents bone loss. After the implant, the abutment is added, which is essentially a support system for the implant as well as the crown to be placed on top. The final step to dental implanting is placing your beautiful crowns on top of the abutment. At the end of the procedure, you are left with nothing but a beautiful, flawless smile!

One of the many advantages to dental implants is the fact they look completely natural. Like many people, you may not want it to be obvious you had work done, or you do not want your smile to look fake. Dental implants look like your natural teeth, sure you are sure to look as put together as possible. Another advantage is the fact that dental implants restore you self-esteem. Because you may have lost some confidence while being insecure about your smile, this procedure is a wonderful way to give back the worth you have missed!

If you feel as though Dr. Banda is able to help you revolutionize your smile with dental implants, contact our office and make an appointment today! Don’t wait to change your smile and your life!

Contact Cranbrook Dental Care today to reserve your appointment with Dr. Banda. We will be able to take care of all of your implant placement, sedation dentistry, and oral surgery needs. We proudly serve patients from Clarkston, Troy, Royal Oak, Birmingham, and the surrounding Detroit areas!


Comfortable Dental Care with Sedation Dentistry

January 3, 2014

Many patients struggle with anxiety when it comes to dental care. At Cranbrook Dental Care, we don’t want patients to delay or put off care because of anxious feelings. That’s why we offer two popular forms of sedation dentistry. With oral conscious sedation and IV sedation, we can help you ease stressful feelings and get the important care you need.

Oral conscious sedation works using an anti-anxiety medication prescribed for you by Dr. Banda. Simply take the prescribed amount one hour before your procedure. As you wait for your appointment to begin, the medicine will begin to take effect. Many patients come close to dosing off, but you’ll still be able to respond to Dr. Banda’s questions or directions during your visit. Most patients don’t have any memory of their appointment afterwards.

Similarly, IV sedation can help you experience dental care in a way you never thought possible. But with this method, the sedative is delivered intravenously instead of with a pill. In both cases, you will need a friend or family member with you to drive you home afterwards.

Don’t put off important dental care any longer. Call Cranbrook Dental Care to find out how sedation dentistry can help you. We serve patients from Bloomfield Hills, Royal Oak, Clarkston, Troy, and Birmingham.

Avoiding Bones Loss with Dental Implants

March 18, 2013

Tooth roots serve two important functions. The first is that they anchor teeth to the jaw. Second, they stimulate the production of new bone tissue. This keeps the jaw healthy and strong.

When a tooth is lost, so is the root. As a result, a part of the jaw no longer has something there to stimulate the growth of new bone tissue. That can lead to serious repercussions for your smile as time goes by.

Bone loss will be the primary problem. Over time, the portion of jaw that’s missing a root will begin to atrophy. Then, as more bone loss occurs, nearby teeth will be put in danger as well. Given enough time, it’s possible for the loss of just one tooth to lead to the loss of several others.

Thankfully, with a restorative solution like dental implants, Dr. Banda of Cranbrook Dental Care can help patients from Bloomfield and beyond avoid bone loss. That’s because dental implants mimic the structure of natural teeth. The top portion–known as the crown–replaces your missing tooth, while the implant post below it acts like a prosthetic root.

Most dental implants are made from titanium. When placed in the jaw, implants promote the growth of new bone tissue, the way a natural root does. Over time, the jaw and your new “root” will bond, creating a strong, stable foundation for your replacement tooth.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Do you have a gap in your smile? Are you worried about bone loss in your jaw? Talk to Dr. Banda about restoring your smile with dental implants. During a simple a consultation visit with him at his Bloomfield dental office, he can tell you if you’re a candidate for the procedure. If you are, his team can start putting together your treatment plan right away.

Call Cranbrook Dental Care today to reserve your appointment with Dr. Banda. We serve patients from Clarkston, Troy, Royal Oak, Birmingham, and the entire metropolitan area of Detroit.
