Restorative Dentistry in Lake Forest CA
Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing problems in your mouth with treatments like fillings, crowns and dental implants. When your teeth are experiencing damage, restorative dentistry is designed to help bring back your healthy smile.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, chipped teeth, tooth loss, or gum disease, you need the care of a restorative dentist like Dr. Pankaj Narkhede.
Tooth-Colored Tooth Fillings
For small cavities, tooth colored fillings are an excellent choice. To protect your overall health, Dr. Pankaj Narkhede uses mercury-free fillings to treat cavities. Not only are they safer, but they’re also more attractive.
Root Canal Therapy
If your tooth is suffering from a large crack, cavity, severe pain, or an abscess, Dr. Narkhede may recommend root canal therapy to save it.
If the idea of a root canal makes you feel nervous, don’t let it! Root canal therapy is a relatively painless procedure. Your comfort is always Dr. Narkhede’s priority. Once your procedure is completed, a dental crown will be placed to protect your tooth from further damage.
Our Lake Forest dental office offers full-coverage dental crowns. These restorations offer beautiful aesthetic results that protect your natural tooth from further damage or decay. They’re also perfect for topping off your dental implants.
You don’t have to live with a gap in your smile! Dr. Pankaj Narkhede offers metal free bridges, crafted from porcelain and Zirconia to replace your missing tooth.
These durable white restorations enhance your smile’s overall health and appearance.
Are you missing one or all of your teeth? Dr. Narkhede is one of the only dentists in the Lake Forest area that surgically places a dental implant in his own office, instead of referring you elsewhere for the surgical phase.
Using a titanium post, these artificial “tooth roots” act as a secure support to permanently anchor your new tooth, bridge or denture.
Dental Implant Restoration
Problems with dental implants are rare, but they do happen. If you notice your dental implant has loosened, is causing your gum to swell, or the crown on top of your implant is cracked, call Dr. Narkhede right away!
A dental implant can’t fix itself and if you try to treat it yourself, you could end up causing more damage to your mouth.
All-On-4 Dental Implants
With All On 4 Dental Implants, your dental implants are stabilized together with a prosthesis to allow you to use your teeth immediately. If you are a good candidate for All-On-4 Dental Implants, you can expect to have your teeth in just one day!
Everyone’s case is unique but the vast majority of the work done by Dr. Pankaj Narkhede will be completed before the dental implant surgery.
For patients missing all their teeth, our Lake Forest dental practice offers traditional dentures to give you back the function, feel and appearance of your natural teeth.
If you already have dentures, but hate the way they fit, we offer an implant retainment option for greater stability. We can even retro-fit your existing dentures to snap into place!
Denture Stabilization With Dental Implants
Are your existing dentures loose and causing you discomfort? Dr. Narkhede can eliminate the problem of slippery dentures by fitting them to dental implants.
Once implants are placed, Dr. Narkhede will fit your dentures with attachments that allow the dental implants to hold your dentures firmly in place. No more sliding around and discomfort!
