We believe using advanced techniques can give you precise, quality results and a beautiful smile. Our office features incredible modern dental technology, which allows us to provide precision care in a more comfortable environment. Below are some of the technologies we use at Desoto Family Dental Care.
Digital x-rays give us larger images than traditional x-rays, which improves the accuracy in diagnosis. In addition, these images require up to 90% less radiation than conventional film x-rays. Patients simply bite on digital sensors while our computers process the images within seconds.
Dental lasers are a safe and gentle alternative to traditional dental tools. Many techniques use a laser and water spray to perform procedures without shots or drills.
The laser produces virtually no vibration and no noise, and the procedures generally don’t require anesthesia. Using energized water molecules to gently wash away tooth decay, the laser allows us to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible.
We also use lasers to treat soft tissue problems like gum disease and perform minor surgical procedures. The laser can stop bleeding, seal lymphatic and nerve endings, and minimize inflammation. Most of our patients report minimal discomfort during and after a dental laser procedure.
Intraoral cameras are a great way for our doctors and professional staff to get a good look inside your mouth. The intraoral camera transmits crystal-clear images of the inside of your mouth to a monitor, allowing us to diagnose potential health problems. This technology also helps our dentists explain a diagnosis to a patient during a consultation.
Intraoral cameras allow us to create accurate documentation of the condition of your mouth and obtain a quicker response from the insurance company. Clear, visual evidence can confirm the results of our diagnostic tests.
An autoclave is a device that heats solutions above their boiling point, producing pressurized steam that effectively kills all microorganisms. We use autoclave steam to sterilize all of our instruments prior to performing dental work to prevent the spread of infection. Our sterilization process exceeds the nationally accepted standards, ensuring the safety of our patients and the cleanliness of our work environment.
Our facilities are designed to provide a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere for our patients. The first time you come through the front door, we want you to notice a difference. Our office is easy to access and has plenty of parking. The décor has been created to reflect the quality, comfort, and service we hope will make our patients feel welcome and at ease.
Our welcoming reception area isn’t designed to be a waiting room. We do everything we can to see you promptly and as close to your appointment time as possible. Our private consultation room allows you to speak to the dentists and team about your customized treatment plan in a confidential, relaxed environment.
We will then show you to one of our clean, sterilized treatment rooms, which are constructed to help you feel comfortable. Relax in a padded chair. We can provide a blanket if needed. We offer complimentary nitrous oxide to further relax you, if you need it.
While you are in the chair, you’ll have a picturesque view of the fountains outside that can help to put your mind at ease. We’ve created a comfortable environment to provide you with relaxing, personalized dental care. Visit our office today to see the difference!
The doctors at Desoto Family Dental Care have made it a priority to continue their education in the latest dental techniques and technologies. Our doctors enjoy increasing their dental knowledge and making changes that will help us better serve our patients.
For several years, we have been honored to receive the award for “Best Dentists in Desoto County,” according to a survey conducted by the Desoto Times Tribune. Receiving this award can be attributed to our passion for taking care of patients and treating them like part of our family.
You can feel confident knowing that our dentists have the experience to make your smile beautiful!
Our in-house lab, located on the second floor of our building, allows us to provide excellent care for our patients. Most dental offices ship your impressions to an outside lab, which has no direct contact with the patient.
We are able to consult with our lab from the beginning of the process right up to the end. This ensures the beautiful and happy smiles for our patients as conveniently as possible.
There are many other benefits to having an in-house lab. If dental work needs an adjustment, many times we can make the correction without the inconvenience of another appointment. Additionally, you can have your new crowns, bridges, veneers, etc. back in a timely manner because you won’t have to wait on shipping.
Because our dentist is fully involved in the lab process, the end result can be more aesthetically pleasing and functional. We control the quality of the materials we use so you can be confident that your restoration is high-quality and made of safe, non-toxic material.
