Air Flow Powder Dental Cleaning

Technology is transforming all areas of our lives – including dentistry. Dr. Narkhede is proud to offer the advanced air flow powder polishing technique. Air flow powder polishing is a type of dental prophylaxis using a machine to clean and polish the teeth with a mix of water, air and fine powder particles.

This method is far superior to traditional cleaning methods that use scraping tools and rubber cups which can be time-consuming and uncomfortable. Air flow powder polishing is also the ideal way to remove dental stains, as it whitens teeth while thoroughly removing dental plaque.

This highly efficient technique improves patient comfort by polishing without direct contact, pressure, heat or noise. It is also much superior to traditional periodontal treatments.

TMJ Disorder

If you are suffering from frequent headaches or jaw aches, you could have Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD). If you are suffering from these symptoms, Dr. Narkhede will schedule a complete evaluation of your jaw and mouth at our Lake Forest office to determine the best treatment option for you.

Tooth Extractions

Tooth Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. Fortunately, we can help! If you’re experiencing dental pain, call Dr. Narkhede immediately to schedule an appointment.

Wisdom Teeth Extraction

The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful.

If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, Dr. Narkhede will use intra-oral imaging to locate them and determine if they should be removed.

Digital X-Rays

Our Lake Forest dental practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patients' teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems.
