Whenever possible, natural teeth should be protected to prevent loss. Teeth are important for chewing, speech and supporting your facial structure, as well as completing your smile. Unfortunately, there are circumstances when the best solution is removing a tooth through extraction. When it is not possible or advisable to save a troubled tooth, our dental team at The Smile Lounge offers painless tooth extractions at our dental center in Grand Prairie.
