There are certain circumstances that occur where a tooth, for the health of your smile, must be removed. This is called a tooth extraction. Infection is the most common cause of tooth extractions. To prevent the infection from spreading and damaging other teeth, the tooth is removed and the surrounding area is checked for signs of infection and treated accordingly. Another common type of tooth extraction in Napa, California is wisdom teeth removal. Your third molar, also known as a wisdom tooth, often becomes impacted, meaning it can get stuck in the gums and jawbone, and may grow in sideways. This is dangerous to your smile and often causes multiple complications and pain. Wisdom tooth extraction is done to maintain a healthy smile.
