Our Family Dentistry Services
In addition to a good oral hygiene routine at home, regular dental cleanings are needed to remove any plaque build-up that your daily routine can miss. These bi-yearly visits give us the opportunity to spot any problems early before they grow into costly repairs.
Our hygienists love to use these appointments as opportunities to provide education – especially to children – on the proper way to clean teeth and gums and why oral hygiene is important. We do everything we can to ensure these visits are fast, fun, and productive.
When a tooth has severe decay beyond repair, a root canal can help by restoring the strength and the health of the tooth. The first step is to remove all damaged and infected tissue from the inside of the tooth, and then encase it in a custom-crafted crown that will look and function like your natural tooth.
A root canal allows us to save the tooth and make it usable again. With modern dentistry techniques and technology, a root canal can be performed with a minimum of discomfort and let you get back to enjoying your life, pain-free!
When a tooth’s enamel becomes damaged by decay, it may be necessary to remove the damaged area and use a filling to repair it. Dental fillings protect your tooth by keeping bacteria from causing any further damage. At our Franklin dental office, we only use composite fillings, which blend with your natural tooth color. Talk with Dr. K to learn if tooth-colored fillings are right for you.
Many people experience dental anxiety at a level that makes it difficult for them to receive needed dental care. We understand!
We can help you feel relaxed during your visit by using noise-canceling headphones that block out nerve-racking sounds and instead play soothing music.
We also offer simple and effective oral sedation to help you remain relaxed throughout your treatment. Call our office and let’s discuss what we can do to make your next visit the most comfortable you’ve ever had.
Although we believe in conservative dental treatment and always do our best to save a tooth, at times, it becomes necessary to remove a tooth completely. Usually, this is because a tooth has become damaged through decay or accident, or in the case of a wisdom tooth, the tooth has become impacted.
Extractions are relatively simple procedures that can often be done with just a local anesthetic. Dr. Olga Krikunenko and her team will make your comfort their top priority before, during, and after your procedure.
They saw me the same day I called because I had severe pain in a tooth. I was very grateful. All the staff were kind and helpful. My subsequent visits were for a filling in one tooth, and then a crown in another - all went very well. I am happy I changed dentists to Dr. K. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
