Why Choose an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon?

When you need specialized dental work performed, you want the highest caliber dental professional to complete your procedure. While general dentists may offer some of the same services as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, they do not have the same training and level of knowledge. If you need teeth removed, dental implants, jaw corrections or any other complex oral procedure, choose an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to obtain the best results.

What Makes an Oral Surgeon Different Than a General Dentist?

Both general dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons receive the same basic medical and dental training. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons have the ability to do all the same dental procedures as a general dentist. However, after finishing dental school, they continued their education with six more years of specialized training and residency in oral and maxillofacial surgery, including one year of training in general surgery. During this time, they complete surgeries and learn specialized techniques that protect the safety and health of their patients. Once completed, they receive a medical degree and their specialty as an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

Oral surgeons specialize in treating complex conditions in the mouth, teeth, jaw and face. These procedures require extensive knowledge of the oral and facial structure, as well as the techniques and methods for treatment. Since these are often surgical treatments, oral surgeons also receive extensive training in anesthesia methods and pain control for their patients. This ensures pain and discomfort are minimized for patients during and after oral surgical procedures.

Benjamin Yagoubian DDS, MD, and our team at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center have dedicated their careers to serving patients that need complex oral and maxillofacial surgeries. We work closely with dentists and doctors throughout the South Bay area to provide exceptional care for their patients when they require oral surgery. We offer an extensive list of oral surgical services that go above and beyond routine dental or oral care that are best performed by a specialist.

If you need dental implants, facial or jaw reconstruction, tooth extraction or other complicated oral or maxillofacial surgeries, contact our team at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center today. You can expect our compassionate, knowledgeable team to provide you with the best care available.

    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.
