Recovery After a Dental Extraction: What to Expect Torrance, CA

Recovery After a Dental Extraction: What to Expect

Dental extractions are often one of the last options for someone who has a painful, damaged, or severely infected tooth. When a tooth is non-restorable or impacted, removing it may be the best solution. The team at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center have answered a few questions to help put you at ease when it comes to recovery after a dental extraction, whether it’s “routine” or more complex, like a wisdom tooth removal.

Types of Extractions

There are different types of tooth extractions a person may need to have. It can be a single tooth extraction for dental implants, removing multiple teeth for dentures, or a sedated wisdom teeth extraction. Depending on the type of treatment being done, healing and recovery times may vary.

What to Expect

With most extractions, the bleeding tends to stop fairly quickly after the tooth is removed. Single tooth extractions heal within a few days without much concern. The same happens with multiple tooth extractions, although you may feel a bit more sore afterward.

Wisdom teeth extractions can be more complex, especially if the tooth is impacted, and require more time to recover. It may take up to 7-10 days, and you may experience more swelling as the surgical sites heal. If the pain persists or gets worse, it’s important to let us know, just to be sure there is no infection present.

Home Care Instructions

Following the instructions provided at the time of your extraction is very important. This will help you to recover as quickly as possible without complications.

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.
