Treating Minor Decay
When patients commit to their regular cleanings and exams at Narberth Dental Group, we can often address decay early enough to prevent the need for more complicated procedures. After Dr. Miller conducts a thorough examination to determine the extent of decay, we develop a treatment plan that meets your oral health needs and goals. Our practice prefers to take a conservative approach, only recommending necessary treatments.
If the cavity is minor enough, we can remove all decay and fill the tooth with a composite resin filling. This material provides protection to the treated area, and the tooth-colored resin offers a less noticeable alternative to traditional amalgam fillings.
Root Canal Therapy
Decay can progress deep into the inner part of the tooth and cause infection if not treated early. Other factors that can expose the inner pulp to decay are cracks in teeth or repeated dental work. When this complication develops, root canal therapy removes all traces of infection and relieves you of these symptoms.
Patient health and safety are a priority at Narberth Dental Group. While Dr. Miller routinely performs root canal therapy in our office, she will refer more complicated cases to a trusted specialist if it’s more beneficial. Once the infected pulp is completely eliminated from the inner chambers of your tooth, Dr. Miller fits you with a custom-crafted porcelain crown to restore function and aesthetics.
Tooth Extraction and Replacement
We make every effort to preserve your natural teeth. However, if decay cannot be prevented, extracting the tooth may be the only course of treatment. Dr. Miller has the training and expertise to perform most tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth.
After the extraction procedure, we offer traditional restoration options such as dentures, partials, and bridges. Additionally, for patients wanting the healthiest tooth replacement method, we place dental implants to provide stability to the restoration. Dental implants replace the entire tooth from root to crown and stimulate the jaw tissue to help prevent resorption.
