GAC Self Ligating Braces
Self-ligating braces offer several benefits for patients. They use a self-ligation technique using lighter wires and lower friction brackets to move teeth, while resulting in faster treatment times due to its slide mechanism, strong, mechanical base bonding and solid walls structured to control tooth movement with speed and efficiency. In addition to greater comfort, self-ligating braces make it easier to maintain good hygiene because they are easier to keep clean. This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment.

Comprehensive X-ray Diagnosis
Our in house x-ray lab provides us with the finest hospital
grade x-ray equipment with one of the few laminagraph dental office machines
(takes films of the jaw joints) in the United States. With the comprehensive
diagnosis these x-rays provide, Dr. Freeman can best determine the specific
needs of each patient.
Digital X-rays -- No more films, no more developing, no more waiting!
Images in an instant!
Our X-ray department is now fully equipped with completed digital X-ray
equipment and we are really seeing the benefits of the latest technology!
Phosphorous plates are used when the X-ray is taken, the image is loaded
into the computer, and then the plate is cleared with ligh exposure and
ready to use again. The result -- a very detailed film that can
be magnified, lightened or darkened, made 3D, and much, much more, all
with the touch of the finger.
Dr. Freeman uses all images to diagnose treatment at your very first appointment!
Aren't computers amazing?!
Comfortable Appliance Adjustments
Unlike years ago, todays appliances are gentler,
using lighter forces to move the teeth therefore reducing the soreness
associated with orthodontic care.
