For a professional to provide the best services possible, that means having access to the best tools and technologies to do the job. This credo certainly applies to the field of dentistry. Dentists working at the forefront of scientific innovation have the latest advances in technology at their disposal. These dentists use these advanced tools in combination with the highest quality of materials, and always are pursuing continuing education, so they remain up to speed on the newest evolutions in techniques and procedures. If you live in the Knoxville area and are looking for a dentist, you should come and see how Choto Family Dentistry is using technologies and innovative techniques to provide the highest possible level of care.

Neuromuscular Dentistry

Can you identify your temporomandibular joint? Here’s a hint; it’s a small, round-sized joint that connects your jaw to your skull. If this joint is not functioning properly, it can have a major impact on your overall quality of life. Temporomandibular joint disorder (or TMJ or TMD for short) often results in chronic and debilitating pain. Neuromuscular dentists, like the ones on staff at Choto Family Dentistry, are the best-qualified medical professionals to identify and treat cases of TMJ disorder.

As part of our program of neuromuscular dentistry, we use the Trudenta System, which offers comprehensive and medication-free treatment of TMJ disorder. The Trudenta System performs a bite force analysis of your entire mouth, identifying any imbalances in the teeth and jaws. From there, Drs. Darrel Clabough and Tommy Spears can identify the correct direction and force that should be exerted onto each individual tooth in your mouth, alleviating the stress being placed on the temporomandibular joint.

Laser Dentistry  

Soft-tissue dentistry has come a long way thanks to the advent of laser technology. Our precise dental lasers at Choto Family Dentistry can be used to perform any one of a host of soft tissue procedures that previously had to be performed by traditional means: cutting into the tissue with a scalpel, and then closing the incision with sutures. Our laser can make incisions that are mere nanometers deep, and soft-tissue procedures can be performed in significantly less time, with less discomfort, less bleeding, a shorter recovery time, and a significantly reduced risk of infection. When you are searching for a dentist in Knoxville, choose one that offers laser dentistry for these many benefits.

Cosmetic Dentistry

A specialization of dental science, cosmetic dentistry seeks to improve the appearance of the teeth and mouth. Cosmetic dentists working at the forefront of dental science are knowledgeable on the latest techniques in the field, use sophisticated technologies, and beautiful materials to produce dazzling-looking results. At Choto Family Dentistry, our cosmetic dentistry program often produces results that also function on a higher level, according to our patients. Our range of cosmetic services includes teeth whitening, veneers, inlay/onlays, dental bonding, laser gum recontouring, bridges, crowns, tooth-colored fillings, dentures, dental implants, and orthodontics. Choosing a Knoxville cosmetic dentist that can take care of your entire cosmetic dental needs can save you time.
