Restoring Smiles Since 1994

The dentists at Hicks Dental strive to provide patients of all ages the dental care they need. We create personalized treatments in the implant, preventative, and cosmetic dentistry to maintain optimal oral health. Our practice is located in Palatka, FL, and serves Putnam, St. Johns, and Flagler counties.

We look forward to building confidence in your smile, from routine dental cleanings to Invisalign treatment to dentures!

General Dentistry

Dental Exams

At Hicks Dental, we strive to provide our patients with the tools to maintain optimal oral health. One of the best preventative treatments for cavities and gum disease is routine dental exams. Our dentists evaluate your teeth, take x-rays, and diagnose any issues you may have at our dental exams. After this appointment, we recommend routine cleaning with our dental hygienists to maintain your tooth and gum health.

Dentures

Dentures and partial dentures provide a great therapeutic option for patients who are missing teeth. At Hicks Dental, our removable prosthetics are designed to look like natural teeth and help restore mouth function. Our team will work with you to determine which restoration option is best first your dental health needs.

Gum Disease Treatment

Keeping your gums in good shape is essential to your oral health, as they provide the foundation for your teeth. During your routine exams, we will examine your gums for periodontal diseases. To help keep gums healthy, we will clean the pockets along the gum line. This helps prevent gingivitis and gum disease.

Molar Root Canals

If a cavity has reached the pulp of a tooth, a root canal treatment is necessary. Dr. Charles Hicks has completed extensive continuing education courses on root canal and endodontic therapy treatments to ensure you have a successful, stress-free procedure.

During this, the interior of your tooth will be cleaned out and disinfected. The infected pulp will be removed, and the roots’ canals will be sealed to prevent future bacterial invasion. We restore your tooth with a crown or a filling to add strength and stability. This returns the tooth to normal function.

Restorative Dentistry

Our dentists are trained in restorative dentistry procedures to ensure your teeth are the healthiest they can be. This type of dentistry is dedicated to restoring an individual’s teeth to their original shape, size, and function. From replacing missing teeth through dental implants to rebuilding teeth with dental crowns, our goal is to maintain oral function and prevent decay.

Extractions

Sometimes, the best course of action is extracting the tooth if you have a tooth with significant damage. This procedure is only recommended in severe cases where extraction will help your oral health improve drastically and prevent problems with surrounding teeth. We will discuss replacement options to determine the best course of action.

3D Imaging

Hicks Dental is the only dental practice in Putnam County with 3D imaging equipment. Traditional x-rays expose you to far more radiation than 3D Imaging. Our scans can be completed in less than half a minute and allow us to view bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves more clearly. These images give us a better understanding of your teeth and the best treatment options for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Crowns

Utilizing our 3D Imaging software, Hicks Dental can diagnose and treat teeth in advanced stages of tooth decay. Similar to fillings, bridges, or implants, dental crowns restore strength, function, and aesthetics to your teeth. Trust the team at Hicks Dental to restore your smile and strengthen your teeth.

One-Day Crown Restorations

Typical crown procedures require two appointments; however, our office is proud to feature same-day crown restoration services. Utilizing CEREC crown technology, we can produce single-tooth restorations in one visit. Hicks Dental strives for our patients to have a stress-free, prompt dental experience with us. Our same-day crown services ditch the inconvenience of temporary crowns, dental impressions, and scheduling a second appointment.

Fixed Bridges

If you have missing teeth due to injury, tooth decay, or gum disease, a dental bridge may be the solution! Bridges can restore your oral health. Bridges are devices that replace missing teeth and are attached to adjacent, natural teeth. Close the gaps in your smile with the help of the expert team at Hicks Dental. We ensure that they will seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Do you have a cavity? Have no fear; at Hicks Dental, we utilize natural tooth-colored fillings or composite fillings to restore teeth for patients of all ages. A filling helps prevent future decay by saving natural tooth structure; it protects against broken teeth while improving tooth stability, color, and strength.

Veneers

Regain confidence in your smile with veneers! Veneers can improve teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or crooked. Veneers are custom-made porcelain laminates that are applied directly to a patient’s teeth. The dentists at Hicks Dental want you to leave our practice with a confident, bright, and healthy smile.

Teeth Whitening

You deserve a confident, white smile! Let Hicks Dental restore brightness and remove stains from your teeth. We provide safe, efficient, and inexpensive teeth whitening solutions to patients throughout Palatka, Putnam, St. Johns, and Flagler counties.

Invisalign

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening system that uses a series of removable, invisible liners to realign your teeth. Each set of aligners is custom-made for you and is finely calibrated to shift your teeth to the desired position. Compared to typical metal braces, these allow you to discreetly straighten your teeth and be able to eat anything you’d like! We create our aligners with advanced 3D computer imaging technology.

Six Month Smiles

Do you want to straighten your teeth quickly? Six Month Smiles may be the solution for you! This technique takes the most effective aspects of braces while modifying the treatment and materials to help patients with crooked teeth realign their smiles. This cosmetic treatment gives adults a practical solution that fits into every lifestyle.

SureSmile

SureSmile® Clear Aligners are designed to ensure a perfect, comfortable fit and promote stronger oral hygiene while enabling you to move your teeth in a way that guarantees you’ll achieve your ideal smile.
