We live in the greatest age of dentistry. Advancements and understanding are increasing at a staggering pace and staying up to date with these changes is critical to the care of our patients. Evidence continues to mount linking the state of the mouth to the overall condition of the body. Providing patients with knowledge and dental care that can change and improve their quality of life is our ultimate goal.
We constantly strive to give our patients the finest dental care possible, and we understand that our investment in advanced technology leads to better dental outcomes. We use a variety of dental technologies described below.
X-rays are a primary tool for early identification of dental problems. Detecting issues with x-rays before they become problematic can save you money in the long run. At Freeman Dental Associates, we use digital x-rays, which have several advantages over traditional film based x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to take x-rays with 1/5th the radiation that you would receive from traditional dental x-rays. The worry of exposure to excess radiation is eliminated.
Large on-screen x-rays make patient communication more effective. The immediate observation of the images on the screen allows us to discuss your dental health quickly and accurately.
CEREC 3D Scans and Milling
The method for taking an impression of your teeth is different, in that instead of taking a putty mold of your tooth, we take a digital impression of it. This is accomplished by dusting your tooth with a reflective powder and scanning it with a handheld wand. Using this method we get an accurate 3D model of your tooth which we use to construct the same-day crown.
Cone Beam CT Scan
Dental Cone Beam CT. Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. Dr. Freeman uses this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
If you have questions about the technology used in our practice, or if you are ready to schedule your consultation, contact us today.
What our patients are saying about us
I have had the pleasure of going to Dr. Freeman's office since she arrived ten years ago. Dr. Freeman and her staff are not only friendly, but care about their patients. Debbie is very helpful at the desk, always trying to accommodate patient's with their often tricky work schedules. Staci and Tobi are both wonderful hygienists. They know each and every one of their customers and make the cleaning time enjoyable. They suggested Invisalign to me and my teeth have never looked better! If you have to have work done by Dr. Freeman, you can count on Allison to be efficient and caring. I can't say enough about Dr. Freeman and her Hanson team! - Barbara G.
"In my last visit with Dr. Freeman, I had a crown, a filling, and some adjustments to another tooth. Although my visit took 2 hours, it was very pleasant. Dr Freeman is always smiling when she comes in. She is very attentive, caring and has as gentle touch when working in my mouth. She explains every step of the process as she is working. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is afraid of dentists." - Henry Y.
"I am so impressed with this practice! We found them while hosting an 11 year old orphan from Latvia. Not only did she do top-notch dental work for him, she was so kind and patient with him, acting out all of the parts of the procedure since he didn't speak English! One of the staff even mentioned she had tried to brush up on her Russian language skills and used a few Russian phrases with him. I cannot even articulate how much that meant to us. Above and beyond, for sure!" - Tiffany L.
"I recently have had quite a bit of dental care on my old teeth. Dr. Freeman and her team did a great job caring for me. So gentle, professional and friendly. My mouth feels so much better!! Don't hesitate to choose this dental office. You will be glad you did." - J. D.
