What is antibiotic prophylaxis

Antibiotics usually are used to treat bacterial infections.  Sometimes, though, dentists or physicians suggest taking antibiotics before treatment to decrease the chance of infection.  This is called antibiotic prophylaxis.

Big News in San Leandro, CA!!!

Dr. Walter F. Tickner, DDS, Inc., located in San Leandro, CA., is the new owner of a German made Air Techniques Pro-Vecta S-PAN.

So What's the Big Deal?

The Pro-Vecta S-PAN brings a new level of image sharpness in dental radiography paving the way to faster and more precise therapy.

Our first and foremost concern is your comfort.  The S-PAN provides a vertical path which accommodates tall patients and wheelchair users.

According to Dr. Tickner, it gives us a very important tool to diagnose and catch things before they become too expensive or too painful and with less radiation than ever possible.

This is the only 2D Panoral that takes 20 layers of images, divides those layers into 20,000 segments, then uses a computer to choose the most accurate and complete picture of the upper and lower jaws possible.

In 7 seconds, you're done!

There's "ONLY" one in Northern California and it's right here at The Tickner Tooth Team.

This is What We Do:

"We do superior dentistry with kindness, tenderness and efficiency."

Our passion for customer service means that our patients can expect an exceptional level of care throughout their dental experience.  If you appreciate this level of care and have decided to prevent more disease and be healthier, we are your kind of office.

This is how we do it.

We go the extra mile because our Doctor loves dentistry.  Our long term staff loves to help and not judge.  We will get you healthy and with your help, set systems in place that will keep you that way.  Dr. Tickner has developed techniques when making dentures that result in them being more comfortable and easier to wear.  He also uses these techniques when making implant dentures.  We make more dentures in a month than most dentists make in a year.
