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.
When Is Tooth Removal Needed?
With advancements in dental techniques and technology, most tooth problems can be resolved. There are only a few issues that may require the removal of a tooth. Some situations where it may be best to remove a tooth or even several teeth include:
- Impacted or crowded wisdom teeth
- Severely damaged teeth
- Severe tooth infections
- Full mouth reconstruction
- Tooth crowding – orthodontic treatment
In some cases, a patient may request that a tooth be pulled even if treatment is available due to cost concerns or other reasons. While no one relishes the idea of undergoing a tooth extraction, it is not a painful procedure. Our dental team and Dr. Daniels ensure our patients are kept relaxed and comfortable during the tooth removal surgery. We have private dental suites with comfy chairs, blankets, neck pillows and headphones for the TV to keep our patients relaxed while we perform their tooth extraction. We numb the tooth nerves, so no pain is felt. We also have sedation options available for patients who need extra help staying calm for their procedure. If you need a tooth removed, you can trust our dental experts at The Smile Lounge to provide you with the best care during your procedure. To schedule an appointment, call our dental office in Grand Prairie, TX, or book your visit online through our website. We accept most insurance plans and CareCredit.
