There are a number of reasons why a patient may need to have a tooth extracted. At Ackley Dental Group, we aim to restore the function of the mouth as soon as possible to avoid further complications with your oral and overall health.

From the time of our youth we learn about the importance of properly caring for our teeth to prevent tooth decay. While this is fantastic and greatly helps many patients avoid the need for dental treatments, other important areas of the mouth also need to be properly cared for to prevent serious oral health complications. The gums are one area that often is overlooked when it comes to oral health and oral care. Lack of gum care can lead to gum disease, which is an inflammation or infection in the gums. When gum disease remains untreated and is allowed to progress, it can cause damage to the jawbone that supports the teeth.
