Sharp Feeling After Tooth Extraction Torrance, CA

Sharp Feeling After Tooth Extraction

Woman in Dentist Chair with Dental Pain Torrance CA

When having a tooth removed in Torrance, California, our oral surgeon extracts the roots from inside of the bone. Usually this is a simple procedure. Occasionally, there are impacted teeth, teeth that are severely decayed, or ones that have curved roots that are difficult to remove. In these instances, opting to perform a surgical extraction is the best solution for removing your tooth.

What Is A Surgical Extraction?

A surgical extraction means that rather than pulling your tooth out in one piece, it will be sectioned into smaller pieces for easier extraction. Often this means partial removal of the bone around the tooth as well. While doing so is necessary, it sometimes results in having small, loose bone fragments after the procedure.

What Is A Bone Fragment?

Bone fragments are little slivers of bone that can get left behind in the socket after a surgical tooth extraction. Ideally, the bone fragment works its way out as the area heals. But sometimes the bone gets caught in the gum tissue and the oral surgeon will need to remove it for you.

Signs That You Have A Bone Fragment

Having a bone fragment can range from mildly irritating to very painful, the sharp pieces that can cut the inside of your cheek or cause an ulcer on your tongue. Most people will call the office a few weeks after having a tooth removed, saying that they feel like there is still a piece of the tooth still there.

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.

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.

The staff here are super friendly and always show genuine concern. I got my wisdom teeth pulled about a year ago and Dr. Yagoubian and his staff made me feel less anxious about the procedure. When I was done, they were thorough with their instructions on how to take care of myself while my wounds healed. They even gave me an ice pack to wrap around my head for the swelling (super useful). Dr. Yagoubian even called to check in on me after the surgery. So when I needed more extractions done this year for orthodontic treatment, I made an appointment here and once again I was well taken care of. Every single person in this office was friendly. During the procedure, they made me feel less anxious even though I was super shaky about getting local anesthesia. They gave me detailed instructions on how to care for my wounds, always gave me an opportunity to ask questions. And once again, Dr. Yagoubian called after the procedure to make sure I was doing well. Now, anytime someone mentions they need their wisdom teeth removed, I tell them Dr. Yagoubian is the man!!

What a nice and knowledgeable Doctor! Dr. Ben took the time to answer all our questions about the removal of all four wisdom teeth. He explained in detailed what was going to happen and the reason why he does the procedure. It’s obvious that he loves what he does. His staff is very welcoming and friendly. The nice lady in charge of the billing explained very clearly everything. Dr. Ben even called us the evening after the surgery to check if everything was ok. We highly recommend Dr. Yagoubian!

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.
