Dental Technology

Dental care and technology are rapidly progressing, which makes it an exciting moment in history for dentists and individuals that want to upgrade their smiles. Serving patients in Knoxville, Farragut, and surrounding communities, Dr. Z of Pristine Smiles prides herself on staying current on cutting-edge dental tools, techniques, and technology to continually enrich the overall level of care and service.

Digital Smile Design

Some patients that dream of extensive cosmetic or restorative treatments are afraid to pull the trigger. One of the main reasons is not understanding how great their smile could look after a well-thought-out treatment plan.

So, Dr. Z uses digital smile design dental software to illustrate what our state-of-the-technology can accomplish and to create individualized virtual projections of what the smile should look like after reaching aesthetic dentistry goals (and adjust if needed).

Intraoral Cameras

Intraoral cameras are hand-held, pen-sized cameras that help Dr. Z carefully and closely examine the gums and dental surfaces. She can easily detect gum disease, interdental cavities, hairline fractures, restoration damage, and other conditions that aren’t visible to the naked eye. Plus, the compact size allows Dr. Z to look at all mouth areas, including hard-to-reach regions like the molars. Advanced imaging helps Dr. Z create effective treatment plans and see the mouth in real time.

Laser Therapy

Regularly, Dr. Z uses lasers for esthetic crown lengthening, cavity treatment, periodontal laser therapy, and more. Whether you want to improve the health of your teeth or gums, laser dentistry is an upgrade from traditional services.

Laser therapy works by using light energy to improve oral health. When applied directly to the treatment site, it kills bacteria, reshapes, and cauterizes wounds on contact. Because laser light is so precise, laser therapy is less invasive and yields a speedier recovery with minimal downtime, bleeding, and post-treatment discomfort.

Digital X-rays

Since the late 1800s, x-rays have helped dentists view and interpret oral health problems. Today, modern dentists, like Dr. Z, choose digital x-rays over traditional film x-rays. Not only do digital x-ray systems produce sharper images, they dramatically reduce radiation exposure.
