If you are in a situation in which it is necessary to have a tooth removed, you want to have it done by someone with a great deal of experience removing teeth, right? At River Valley Smile Center you will find that our doctors have just that, and more. Dr Liggett has been going on mission trips, removing thousands of teeth, lacking X-rays, in less than adequate conditions, for nearly a decade. What Dr. Liggett feels is his most important attribute is his ability, through years of study and practice, to remove teeth as atraumatically as possible. This means that he uses special techniques and instruments that allow them to remove your tooth, while doing minimal damage to the surrounding tissues and bone. This is very important, especially if you intend to replace the tooth with an implant or denture.
