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:
- 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 higher quality restorations. By employing the latest technology in intraoral scanners, we use 3Shape TRIOS hand-held scanner to provide patients with a realistic 3D view of their teeth. This helps us create better restorations in less time and improves our communication with patients by helping them see what we see. Within minutes you will have a comprehensive view of your teeth that helps us provide the best care possible.
- 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.
- Nitrous Oxide: 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 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.
