At Corn Family Dentistry, we provide high quality dentistry to patients ages 1 to 100 years old! For your convenience, your family can visit us in Franklin or also at our Edinburgh location.
You will find that you receive one-on-one attention from Dr. Corn and treatment that is personalized to your needs. We offer a wide range of preventative, restorative, and cosmetic services designed for everyone in the family.
Dr. Corn’s extensive training allows him to offer comprehensive services that you may not find at every practice, which means that you’ll rarely be referred elsewhere for your care.
Preventative Care for the Family
Dr. Corn believes that prevention is truly the foundation for optimum oral health. With consistent six-month cleanings and checkups, we hope to help you avoid many dental issues such as periodontal (gum) disease, oral cancer, tooth decay, and cavities. We also offer options like night guards or splints to treat TMJ, or temporomandibular joint disorder, as well as chronic clenching and grinding, a problem known as bruxism.
Children should also see the dentist every six months, and Dr. Corn likes to see children for their first appointment around the age of one year old (although of course it's never too late to get started!). Our goal is to build a relationship with your child that will help them feel comfortable about their dental care and even look forward to their visits.
Did you know that your periodontal health is directly related to your overall health and well being? We now understand that the bacteria that cause gum disease are also associated with other health concerns such as diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and cardiovascular disease. Gum disease is also the leading cause of tooth loss for American adults.
It is our hope that if gum disease does occur, we can help you detect it as early as possible during routine examinations. The earliest stage of gum disease, gingivitis, can often be successfully managed with a professional cleaning and improvements to your home care.
If you do find yourself facing periodontitis, the advanced stage of gum disease, Corn Family Dentistry is well equipped to help. A deep cleaning below the gum line will remove the plaque and tartar buildup causing your infection, and Dr. Corn may recommend additional treatment such as antibiotic therapy depending on your specific needs.
Since there is no cure for periodontitis, extra cleaning appointments throughout the year will help keep the disease at bay.
Patients will find comprehensive restorative care at Corn Family Dentistry, whether tooth repair or replacement is needed. We use the finest dental materials and work with the top dental laboratories to ensure that any restoration you receive from us is the highest quality and also esthetically pleasing. We hope to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile that will last for a lifetime.
We’re confident that the individualized care and personal attention you receive at Corn Family Dentistry will make you feel right at home.
