Over recent years, dental implant procedures have become increasingly popular as it’s the only dental restoration procedure that preserves and prevents bone loss from missing teeth. With the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons reporting over half of adults 34 to 44 years of age have lost as least one tooth and an additional 26 percent of adults over 74 having lost all of their teeth, dental implants in Bloomfield Hills are widely sought. Dental implants improve the overall quality of life while reducing the risk for potential bone loss.

What Are Dental Implants Exactly?
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that can be surgically anchored into your jaw to permanently secure a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium. There are different types of dental implants. Traditional dental implants are placed directly into the jaw bone like your natural tooth roots, and mini dental implants, which are used when the jaw structure is limited and a custom-made metal framework fits directly over the existing bone below the gum line.
How Are Dental Implants Placed?
Dr. Banda will perform minor surgery to place and anchor the implant into or on your jaw bone. The procedure can be completed in- office with local anesthesia. Once the implant is placed it will remain covered until it can fully fuse with your natural bone. After the implant heals, Dr. Banda will uncover the implant and attach an extension, or abutment post. With some dental implants, the implant and post are actually a single unit placed in the mouth during the initial procedure. In either case, to complete your restoration, Dr. Banda will provide an artificial tooth, or dental crown, to cover the implant post and complete your permanent tooth loss solution.
Why Choose New Dental Implants over Other Tooth Replacement Methods?
Dental implants don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support like dental bridges, and they are more permanent and stable than dentures. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, and they are the only tooth replacement solution which can actually preserve your natural bone and youthful facial features.
The dental implants process can take anywhere from a single appointment to several months, depending on the type of implant you need. Don’t put off the reliable tooth replacement solution you need any longer; schedule your dental implants consultation appointment with Dr. Banda at Cranbrook Dental Care today. Dr. Banda is the leading dental implant expert of Bloomfield Hills, and is now delivering quality care daily throughout metro Detroit, MI, Troy, Clarkston, Royal Oaks, Birmingham, and the neighboring areas.

For some patients, dental implants are the perfect restorative option. Not every patient is automatically right for a procedure that involves dental implants, though. To support dental implants, you need to have enough bone density.
Patients who have had missing teeth for years, or who have had conventional braces for years, may find that they need help with bone grafting before they can seriously be considered for dental implants. That’s because, over time and in the absence of one or more tooth roots, bone loss will occur. What a bone graft is designed to do is restore lost tissue so that a patient who wants dental implants can become a candidate for them.
Dr. David Banda has years of experience providing all phases of dental care, including surgical. That means that, when you come to Cranbrook Dental Care to learn more about bone grafting, you’ll find a knowledgeable, experienced doctor eager to help you. With a thorough exam, he can help you determine if implants are right for you and if bone grafting would help. The treatment plan Dr. Banda creates will be completely customized to fit your needs.
Do you want to learn more about bone grafting and dental implants? Call Cranbrook Dental Care today with your questions or to schedule an appointment. Dr. Banda and his team are proud to offer all phases of dental implant care to patients of Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, Troy, Birmingham, Clarkston, Royal Oak, and the entire metropolitan Detroit area.

A complete smile is important for more than one reason. Not only does a complete smile help you feel more confident around others, it’s important for speaking and for enjoying a healthy diet. When you’re unable to do those to the extent that you’d like you can feel self-conscious and even defensive.
But thankfully, there’s a restorative dentistry solution called dental implants that can help you restore your smile’s appearance and its functionality. With dental implants, Dr. Banda’s Bloomfield patients can enjoy a smile that looks and functions just like a natural smile.
How Do Dental Implants Work?
Like natural teeth, dental implants are made up of two parts: a crown and a “root.” But the root, in this case, is made of titanium and is surgically placed in the jaw. Because titanium is a biocompatible metal, the “root” will bond with the jaw over time, stimulating the growth of bone tissue until there’s a firm bond between the implant and the jaw.
Dental implants can be used in a variety of situations. Some patients may only need to replace a single missing tooth. Others may need to replace as much as a whole row. Dental implants are a versatile option that can work in a variety of situations.
Not every patient is a candidate for dental implants, though. To find out if dental implants are right for you, call Cranbrook Dental Care. Dr. Banda would be happy to advise you following a consultation appointment. We serve patients from Bloomfield, Troy, Birmingham, Clarkson, Royal Oak, and the entire metropolitan Detroit area.
