Although the loss of a tooth can have a major impact on your dental health and appearance, sometimes tooth loss is unavoidable. Dr. Mike Hagley of Grand Rapids Dental Care provide their patients with the full spectrum of dental care, including oral surgery and extractions. When a tooth must be removed, they perform extractions with expert techniques that provide the least amount of discomfort.
Sometimes Tooth Loss is Unavoidable
Dr. Hagley believes that natural teeth are incredibly important, and he focuses his expertise on saving his patients' natural teeth whenever possible. However, there are some instances in which a tooth cannot or should not be saved. Some of the most common reasons for extraction include severe decay, advanced periodontal disease, infection or abscess, orthodontic correction, mal-positioned teeth, fractured teeth or roots, or impacted teeth.
Dr. Hagley performs most extractions in the comfort of his state-of-the-art facility in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. In addition to tooth extractions, Dr. Hagleys also performs other minor soft-tissue surgeries such as biopsies; bone and soft-tissue, pre-prosthetic surgeries; and cosmetic, soft-tissue surgeries. However, when the expertise of an oral surgeon is required Dr. Hagley calls on hisextensive network of dental professionals to provide needed care.
