How To Prepare For Your Oral Surgery Torrance, CA

How To Prepare For Your Oral Surgery

Patient Procedure

Your oral surgery in Torrance will go smoothly and safely if you come well-prepared. In addition to Dr. Yagoubian’s instructions, these tips will help you be ready for your upcoming procedure.

Ask Questions Freely

Your oral surgery will most likely be a routine outpatient procedure. But it’s not routine for you! You probably have a million questions and concerns. You should feel free to express those in order to fully understand the treatment you’re about to have!

Organize Post-Procedure Transportation

Even though you’ll go home the day of the procedure, don’t plan on driving yourself. Your body will still be affected by the anesthetic drugs and you won’t be able to react safely on the road.

Arrange for a friend or family member to take you home after your surgery. These days, it’s not uncommon for people to arrange transportation via a ride-share vehicle.

Shop for Recovery Foods

You’ll probably have to eat only soft foods for a day or more after your procedure. Prepare in advance by stocking up on items that won’t irritate the surgical site. You can eat things like yogurt, mashed potatoes, soup, noodles, eggs, and applesauce.

Remember that you’ll have to fast for several hours before your procedure if you’ll be under anesthesia.

Plan a Comfortable Outfit

On the day of your surgery, wear loose comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Don’t wear any jewelry.

Arrange for Time to Rest

Take off plenty of time from work or school to let your body get the rest it needs. Planning ahead in advance will help you recover as quickly as possible.

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.
