At Freeman Dental Associates, we offer comprehensive family dentistry services to keep your family’s smiles healthy. Our team emphasizes the power of preventive care and offers compassionate education on effective oral hygiene habits to protect your smile for the rest of your life.
Our Hanson dentists recommend a dental checkup every six months to make sure we can stay ahead of any potential oral health problems you may experience.
During your regular dental cleaning appointment, our team will thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for any signs of gum disease, oral cancer or tooth decay.
If we see anything concerning, we will fully inform you of our findings and take the time to talk you through your best treatment options. Dr. Freeman and Dr. Samela are always here to answer any questions you have about your dental care.
At Freeman Dental Associates, we are proud to be your partner in protecting both your oral health and overall well-being!
Our Hanson dental office provides a variety of family dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Professional Teeth Cleaning
Dental prophylaxis is a professional teeth cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans the teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure every six months and we can begin seeing pediatric dental patients for professional teeth cleaning appointments after their second birthday.
Teeth-Strengthening Mineral Application
Teeth-strengthening mineral application is widely used by dentists to help support healthy tooth enamel. This treatment can re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them more resilient against bacteria and is safe for both adults and children.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise even in those who don’t use tobacco. That’s why at Freeman Dental Associates, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of a regular checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Dr. Freeman and Dr. Samela use this dental imaging technology for precise diagnosis and dental treatment planning.
Our cone beam 3D imaging system is used to help our dentists plan dental treatments like:
- Dental Implants
- Root Canal Therapy
- Dental Crowns
- Cosmetic Dental Treatments
- …and more!
This 3D imaging system is at the center of everything we do at Freeman Dental Associates because it virtually eliminates all guesswork, allowing our Hanson dental team to see and clearly plan procedures before your dental treatment even begins!
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child are involved in any type of sport or competitive activity, wearing a custom fitted mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect your teeth and jaw, it can also reduce the risk of concussion.
TMJ Disorder Treatment
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Ask Dr. Freeman or Dr. Samela how you can protect your smile against the excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding with TMJ disorder treatment options.
Gentle Tooth Extractions
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors, including healthy teeth and gums. Fortunately, our Hanson dental team can provide the relief you need with a gentle tooth extraction.
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems. This type of x-ray also exposes you to less radiation than traditional film x-rays.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during your late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
