Professional Teeth Cleanings

Dr. Hickey sits with a patient and Kirsten before starting an exam as part of the general dentistry menu options in his Tacoma WA office.Professional teeth cleanings are an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease, and the guard against cavities and tooth decay.


Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors. Fortunately, we can help!

Wisdom Teeth

The best time to have wisdom teeth removed is during a patient's 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 they warrant being removed.
