Maryville, Alcoa and Knoxville TN
Advances in technology have affected every aspect of American life. This certainly applies to dentistry, where strides in technology are evolving the techniques used in the field at an increasingly rapid rate. In order for your local Knoxville dentist at Cedar Street Family Dentistry to remain at the forefront of the dental science, we are constantly seeking to upgrade our technology.
Here are some of the ways we use technology to continue supplying the highest level of oral care:
- 3M True Definition Scanner: Intraoral scanners have been used in dentistry for the past several years, but this revolutionary device is the first mobile intraoral scanner that can be operated solely on a tablet. The ability to control the scanner from a tablet adds a new level of economical functionality to our practice. The images produced are clear and easy to understand, helping both staff and patients have a greater understanding of specific issues related to the teeth and mouth.
- Digital Impressions: Forget what you think you know about the way dentists take impressions of your teeth and mouth—which, traditionally, meant taking molds that were messy and often uncomfortable for patients. At Cedar Street Family Dentistry, your state-of-the-art Maryville dentist can take these impressions digitally, producing images and models that are more precise which leads to restorations of a higher quality. These digital files also can go in your dental patient records, providing our staff with even more comprehensive knowledge of your oral health history in the event any issues develop.
- Digital X-rays: X-ray technology has been a standard and valuable diagnostic tool in dentistry for decades. At Cedar Street Family Dentistry, your cutting-edge Knoxville dentist uses digital X-ray machines, which produce clearer images in less time and with fewer amounts of X-rays needed while also exposing patients to a fraction of the radiation emitted by traditional X-ray technology.
- Sedation Dentistry: Do you suffer from extremely heightened anxiety or outright fear at the thought of going to the dentist? Do you have a pre-existing condition that makes it difficult to control your muscles or sit in the dental chair for a prolonged period of time? If so, we can keep you comfortable while providing the highest level of care through sedation dentistry via the use of nitrous oxide. Administered as a gas, nitrous oxide provides a calming effect that diminishes your awareness of your surroundings and reduces any fear or nervousness.
