Attention!!! - Dear valued patients,

Our government has been closely monitoring the spread of the coronavirus.
At this time we are closed but will see emergency patients. If you are unsure if you have a dental emergency you can email a picture of the area in question with a description of your concerns and we will reply within 24 business hours.

If you are requesting a prescription or prescription refill you must provide the pharmacy phone number, your full name, date of birth, allergies and a working phone number in case we need to contact you via phone.

If you are currently completing Invisalign treatment we are advising patients to wear your current aligner until we reopen.

In order to keep social distancing, we are asking patients to call upon arrival of your emergency appointment. If we are not updating your information you will be asked to remain in your vehicle until a treatment room is ready for you. Accompanying individuals will not be allowed to wait in the waiting area. Please call or email us with any questions or special circumstances.

In the next few days, we will be reaching out to our patients to reschedule cleanings and non-emergent treatment. You may also contact us to reschedule your appointment via email at franklin@kedentistry.com.

This is a very difficult decision, but as a part of the healthcare community and the community at large, we have to protect the safety of our patients and the team.

Thank you for your support and we hope each and every one of you remain safe during this time.

Dental emergency exams handled promptly in Franklin

According to the American Dental Association, oral problems accounted for 2.18 million hospital emergency department visits in 2012, at an average cost of $749 each . . . and the frequency continues to increase. Treatment usually consists of pain management and referral to a dental specialist. Most of those situations could be handled more efficiently and economically by your regular dentist. The team at K&E Advanced Dentistry strives to help you avoid the discomfort and expense of dental emergencies with preventive hygiene care and patient education. However, we allow time for dental emergency exams in our daily schedule at our Franklin office.

Common causes of dental emergencies:

  • Toothache – A swollen face and unbearable pain is usually because a cavity or fracture has allowed bacteria to reach the tooth’s nerve. Root canal therapy relieves your discomfort and allows you to keep your natural tooth.
  • Trauma – A slip and fall, fender bender, or aggressive sports may result in trauma to teeth or soft tissues. If you have uncontrolled bleeding, please go to the emergency department quickly. For other trauma emergencies, call one of our offices.
  • Fractured tooth – A cracked or broken tooth usually needs dental bonding or a crown for repair, strength, and ongoing protection.
  • Extraction – Your body naturally forms a blood clot after an extraction, to protect exposed nerves in the jaw. When that clot is displaced, a condition called dry socket, it causes intense pain. We can help with a special dressing placed into the socket.
  • Gum swelling – This may be the result of periodontal disease, an abscess, or food impaction. Your dentist will determine the cause and recommend appropriate treatment.
  • Loose or lost filling – We restore the damage with a tooth-colored filling or a lustrous porcelain crown.
  • Dislodged tooth – An avulsed tooth may be the result of advanced periodontal disease or trauma. If the tooth has touched the ground, pick it up by the crown and rinse it with plain water (do not scrub or use soap). Replace it into the socket if possible, or place it between the cheek and gum, or in a cup of milk or saline. Get to our office as quickly as possible for the best chance of the tooth surviving.

We are often able to perform necessary procedures the same day. If treatment cannot be rendered promptly, you leave with medications to get you out of discomfort and a treatment plan to correct the problem.

I am guilty of avoiding the dentist, until I started going to Advanced Dentistry. They make me feel good about my dental health and I love getting compliments about my teeth.
