Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is a serious disease that can affect anyone, regardless of age or lifestyle. Fortunately, early detection can greatly increase the five-year survival rate. That’s why Hickman Family Dental offers oral cancer screenings as part of its family dentistry services.
During an oral cancer screening, Dr. Krehbiel will examine your mouth, tongue, and throat for any signs of cancer. If he detects any abnormalities, he may recommend further testing or refer you to a specialist for further evaluation.
If you have a cavity or tooth decay, one of our dentists may recommend a dental filling to restore the tooth’s strength and prevent further decay. Our dentists use white fillings, which are made of composite resin and can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. He’ll also work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to help you maintain good oral health.
Our team understands that dental anxiety can be especially challenging for children. That’s why Hickman Family Dental offers children’s dentistry services designed to help young patients feel comfortable and at ease during their appointments.
We offer a range of dental services tailored to children, including routine checkups, cleanings, and treatments for common dental problems.
