For an Implant Dentist, Lansing, MI, Turns to Dr. Hagerty

Research from the American College of Prosthodontists shows that approximately 175 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and more than 35 million do not have any teeth, or are edentulous. And as the population ages, the number of people with missing teeth is expected to increase. Unfortunately, a number of negative consequences result from missing teeth. Many people have difficulty speaking and eating, because of course teeth are critical to enunciation and chewing. Still others are reluctant to smile or laugh because they know people will be able to spot the hole in their smile. Thus, missing teeth are often the reason for both physical and emotional problems. Fortunately, residents of Lansing, MI, have a highly skilled and educated dentist they can turn to for tooth replacement with dental implants: Dr. John J. Hagerty.
