Wisdom Teeth Extraction and Management Torrance, CA

Wisdom Teeth Extraction and Management

Wisdom teeth are the last adult teeth to enter the mouth, erupting between the ages of 17 to 25. Sometimes wisdom teeth are impacted, having difficulty erupting into the oral cavity by being blocked or not erupting upright.  

All wisdom teeth do not to need to be extracted. Wisdom teeth that do come into the mouth in a proper position and are maintained with good hygiene can be kept if they fulfill following conditions:

  1. Painless
  2. No CavitiesDisease Free
  3. Healthy Gums

However, research has shown 90% of individuals will have one wisdom tooth that is impacted. These teeth can incite future problems i.e. infection, gum disease, insult to neighboring teeth, cyst and tumor formation.

If surgery is to be performed, it is always best to be done at 15-25 years of age. At a younger age the bone is less dense, roots are less formed and are not as adjacent to nearby structures as the nerve and maxillary sinus. Generally, it is known that at some point in a patient’s life wisdom will cause a problem, thus prophylactic removal is recommended.

Wisdom teeth extractions are performed in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon’s office. Three different options are available on how a patient would like to have their wisdom teeth removed:

  1. Local Anesthesia
  2. Nitrous Oxide
  3. Intravenous Sedation

Have your patients make an appointment with Dr. Benjamin Yagoubian at Torrance Oral Surgery Center for a consultation to discuss the best treatment options.

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.
