Will I Feel Anything During My Oral Surgery?


Oral surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures from wisdom teeth removal to jaw surgery. We understand the hesitations most patients experience when it comes to these more sensitive treatments. That’s why at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, we offer safe in-house sedation options to help our patients feel as comfortable as possible during their appointment.

Choose From 3 Sedation Options

We offer 3 different sedation techniques to our patients to ensure they don’t feel a thing during their surgery appointment.

Nitrous Oxide – Nitrous Oxide, or laughing gas, is the mildest way to keep our patients nice and relaxed. It is given throughout the appointment to relieve nervousness and anxiety and promote a general calming feeling.

IV Sedation – IV Sedation is a moderate sedative given to the patient through an injection into the bloodstream. This allows the individual to feel completely at ease, almost as if they have slept through the appointment. The sedation needs time to wear off, so some of that sleepiness may persist after the appointment.

Oral Conscious Sedation – Oral conscious sedation is an oral medication that is given to our patients to help them relax and numb their senses. It is usually taken before coming to the office, so it is necessary to have someone available to drive to and from the appointment with you. The effects last for a few hours, so you’ll feel drowsy for a bit afterward.

If you need oral surgery of any kind, trust Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center to provide you with friendly, safe, and comfortable care. Call our office to book an appointment today.

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.
