Traditional film X-rays were essential in helping the dentists of past years identify dental problems located out of the naked eye’s view – but today, our Chattanooga, TN team is proud to have invested in an advanced alternative! Digital X-rays eliminate many of the pitfalls associated with the original model, including eliminating darkroom development.
All too often, patients end up left in the dark when it comes to their ongoing oral health because they can’t see what our dentists are seeing. Intraoral cameras solve this problem by transmitting high-resolution images of your unique smile to a monitor right in the room! This allows our team members to make your diagnosis and treatment planning much clearer and more fulfilling overall.
Accuracy in treatment planning is a top priority for Dr. Parkerson and Dr. McGovern , and panoramic X-rays can provide the truly comprehensive information they need to ensure a high level of success as our team transforms patients’ smiles for the better. Unlike traditional X-rays, the images our panoramic system captures are three-dimensional.
We understand despite our friendly team’s best efforts, many people simply don’t feel comfortable while visiting the dentist. In order to help you relax, we offer nitrous oxide sedation (also known as “laughing gas”) as a helpful aid. Patients breathe in the nitrous oxide through a nasal mask, and they should start to feel calmer and more content within minutes.
IV conscious sedation is another, more moderate form of sedation that’s ideal for patients who suffer from dental-related anxiety or who are in need of multiple, time-consuming procedures. Once in the treatment area, medications to help you relax will be administered through an IV to help you enter a twilight state of relaxation.
At Chattanooga Dental Arts, we use cutting-edge technology to capture computer-generated replicas of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth, known as digital impressions. We use a 3Shape intraoral scanner to accurately and quickly make crowns, partials, dentures, and night guards. The replicas are clear and more accurate than the messy, inconvenient, and uncomfortable conventional plaster molds.
Here's some kind words from a few of our happy patients.
It was my first time here, and I was blew away by the staff, these are the nicest people ever, I had a warm welcome upon entering and the hospitality did not stop. What a great staff. If you need a dentist I highly recommend you to give this business a try. My hygienist was the best, and I felt really comfortable with her. I had went to a dentist up the road first and I wasn’t treated the same upon my entry to their establishment so I remembered talking to a ladie that worked at this dental office sometime back, I drove down the street until I saw this office and I’m so glad I did. Thanks for a great dental experience.
I went to this office for the first time today & felt like they were glad to help me. I felt at ease & was impressed by everyone! Michelle & Brittney were great & Dr Jancy made me feel confident my needs would be met. I will go here for all my dental needs & highly recommended it!
My experience has been great! I get extremely nervous when I go to the dentist. They make sure I’m comfortable and always make me feel more relaxed. Everyone on the staff that I’ve encountered have been super nice!
Front desk is always very kind and helpful. Michele is great, best and most thorough cleanings I’ve ever received. Had to get a crown today, Dr Jancy and Jessica were absolutely terrific. Most painless and comfortable experience at any dentist office I’ve ever been to. Highly recommend
I absolutely love Michelle. If you are looking for a dental hygienist, pick her! Dr Parkerson is very thorough and I am pleased with the abutment and crown she placed. She was very caring and made sure I was not in any pain during the procedure. They are the best!
