At Today’s Dentistry in Knoxville, TN, we focus on advanced restorative dental treatments for adult patients. The focus of advanced restorative dentistry is on returning health, function and beauty to patients who are suffering from missing or broken teeth, chronic pain and discomfort, TMJ disorders, decay, extensive wear and/or discoloration. Aided by cutting edge technology, we complete a comprehensive evaluation to determine the source of the problem. Fixing the root problem, rather than just treating the symptoms, ensure a long term solution.
Restorative dentistry is an area of dentistry that is important to Knoxville, TN dentist Dr. Cain and has been the focus of her post graduate training. You should not live in pain as a result of dental problems and previously failed dental work. Today’s Dentistry provides a full range of restorative dental procedures to improve the look, comfort and function of your smile. We strive to achieve natural looking results that will allow you to maintain your quality of life and enjoy the things you love, free of pain and discomfort.
Restorative Dental Treatments include:
Advanced Dental Technology
We use some of the most sophisticated technology to help us reach a precise diagnosis, including digital radiographs and digital imaging. A proper diagnosis paired with a personalized treatment plan enable us to achieve high rates of success with our patients.
Digital Bite Analysis
Many patients come to us with excessive tooth wear, facial pain, broken restorations or headaches. Often times, these issues are caused or made words by malocclusion – also known as a “bad bite”. To more easily identify these issues, Dr. Cain has incorporated the T-Scan®, which is a digital bite analysis device that measures both the timing and force of the bite. Using a small, hand-held device, Dr. Cain can capture a digital map of your bite and look for areas of imbalance.
The T-Scan is useful in the diagnosis and treatment of orofacial pain and TMJ disorders, as well as case planning for restorative and cosmetic dentistry, to ensure that restorations fit well and do not cause issues with the balance of the bite.
We are also excited to offer the most advanced radiography technology in our Knoxville dental office with the Sirona ORTHOPHOS XG 3D. This machine captures incredible 2D, 3D and panoramic images in a single scan. Not only are digital x-rays important as a diagnostic tool, they are an essential component for our restorative dentistry treatment plans. With the 3D technology, Dr. Cain can plan the placement of dental implants with the highest levels of precision.
