General Dentistry in Blacklick, OH

As your general dentistry practice in Blacklick, OH, Dr. Hickman and his team are committed helping you maintain good oral health. With this in mind, we’d like to see you and each member of your household two times a year for dental exams and cleanings. At these checkups, one of our hygienists will thoroughly clean your teeth and remove all plaque and tartar; gauge your gum health; visually check for signs of tooth decay; take digital x-rays when necessary; and conduct an oral cancer screening. With regularly scheduled exams, we can more easily keep a lookout for any changes in your oral health that may indicate a developing problem. In combination with your at-home oral hygiene routine—for which we offer guidance and information to make your routine more efficient—we strive to help you avoid problems entirely.

One common problem is gum disease. Did you know that more than half of American adults over the age of 30 have some form of periodontal disease? Although there is no cure, Dr. Hickman offers treatment that can arrest the advance of gum disease. With treatment, we can effectively reduce your risk of tooth loss, heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, and more.

Mouthguards and Nightguards

If you or anyone else in your family is active in sports, then the importance of an athletic mouthguard cannot be overstated. An athletic mouthguard protects your lips, gums, teeth, and jaw from injury during play, practice or games. Moreover, recent studies indicate that a custom athletic mouthguard can also help to reduce the severity of concussions, by acting similarly to shock absorbers during contact. Likewise, a custom nightguard is worn at night to protect teeth from habitual nighttime teeth grinding, also called bruxism.

Other General Dentistry Services

If you become anxious at the thought of a visit to the dentist, then rest assured Havens Family Dental has a treatment for that, too. With oral sedation dentistry, Dr. Hickman will prescribe a mild sedative for you to take prior to your visit. We’ll get to work, you’ll relax and you may not even remember your appointment.

On the other hand, if you remember not sleeping last night because your bed partner snores, then get that person to Havens Family Dental for sleep apnea therapy. Sleep apnea is a condition that causes lapses in breathing and lead to more serious health concerns, including hypertension, depression, impotence, eye disorders, pulmonary hypertension, and more. Dr. Hickman can fabricate a nightguard for you or your partner that forces the lower jaw forward, so the airway is and you can get a good night’s sleep.

For the youngest members of your family, we offer children’s dentistry that includes regular exams and cleanings, fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
