Your cosmetic dentist in Choto remains at the top of the dental field by employing state-of-the-art technology. Not only does this mean that Choto Family Dentistry can offer elite dental care, but that we can do so in less time and with higher-quality materials. If you are in search of a dentist in Knoxville, here is part of what sets Choto Family Dentistry apart from the rest.

Soft tissue laser: Used in the treatment of gum disease or for laser gum recontouring procedures, this cutting-edge soft tissue laser is far superior to the old way of using a scalpel to make incisions. The precision of this laser, paired with its capability of cauterizing tissue as it goes, means you have a much easier recovery and less risk of infection.

Digital X-rays: X-rays have been used in dentistry for decades as a means to diagnose problem areas such as under the soft tissue, between teeth or at the roots of teeth, that otherwise could not be seen. Digital X-rays, however, are at the forefront of radiology in that they emit only an insignificant amount of radiation, making this form of X-rays much safer for patients and our staff. Also, since digital X-rays are generated on the computer immediately, it cuts down on your wait time.

Digital impressions:If you have been to the dentist within the past few decades, you may have had an impression taken of your teeth, especially if you have had orthodontics, a dental crown, bridge, or dentures. The purpose of these goopy impressions is to use them to make a mold that is then used to fabricate custom restorations. However, we have yet to meet a patient who actually likes getting impressions taken! We are proud to offer the technology of digital impressions through the 3Shape TRIOS intraoral hand-held scanner that takes a 3D scan of the inside of your mouth and teeth, which is then used to fabricate custom restorations and devise customized treatment plans. It is quicker, and more comfortable for the patient than anything else on the market used to obtain dental impressions. It also allows us to offer unparalleled results to our patients, and in less time than ever before.
