Does Your Teen Need Their Wisdom Teeth Removed? Torrance, CA

Does Your Teen Need Their Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Teen Oral Surgery Torrance CA

The teen years (and early 20s) are the most common time for wisdom teeth to make their appearance. However, they’ve actually been developing since childhood.

If you’re wondering whether it’s time for your teen or college student to have their wisdom teeth taken out, watch for these four sign:

They’re in Pain
Wisdom tooth pain tends to come and go as the teeth work their way through the eruption process. At some point, the pain may become consistent and not resolve on its own. If your student is requiring a daily dose of over-the-counter pain reliever, then it’s time to get their wisdom teeth removed.
You’re Seeing Orthodontic Relapse
Is your teen a former orthodontic patient? You might start to notice some mild crowding or “relapse” in their front teeth once the wisdom teeth start pushing their way in. A retainer may not necessarily help, either.
Eating is Difficult or Uncomfortable
Biting and chewing may be painful, especially if wisdom teeth are decayed and infected. Since infections and decay can spread into the adjacent teeth as well, symptoms may present themselves most during mealtime.
There’s Evidence of Facial Swelling
Facial swelling is common for impacted or partially erupted wisdom teeth. Inflammation, cysts, and infection can contribute to swelling on one or both sides of the face, near the jaw.

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

  • Mindy W.

    This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

  • Raj G.

    Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

  • Chahab S.

    Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

  • Paul M.

    A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
