In most cases, our teeth erupt naturally into the mouth and support normal oral function. Sometimes they become stuck in the gums or jawbone and are considered impacted. Tooth impaction may be caused by insufficient space in the mouth for proper eruption or a tooth angled abnormally within the jaw. At Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, our team of specialists routinely treats impacted canines, wisdom teeth, and other types of tooth impaction to help patients receive the care they need for better oral health. Contact our Los Angeles, CA practice to learn more about how Dr. Husam Elias can treat impacted teeth.

Impacted teeth tend to be third molars (wisdom teeth) and eye teeth (canines). Some impacted teeth don't cause harm to the mouth and can be monitored by your dentist. However, if an impacted tooth is harming your oral health or causing pain, you should seek treatment at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts.

During your consultation, an x-ray will be taken to give our team a better look at the impacted tooth. Fully or partially impacted wisdom teeth or other problematic teeth might require extraction. Impacted canines are treated with a procedure that exposes the tooth's surface. An orthodontic appliance is then attached to guide the tooth to erupt correctly. Local anesthesia is typically used when treating impacted teeth. Additional sedation services are also available.

After receiving aftercare instructions, an adult must drive you home if certain types of sedation were used. Pain medications or cold compresses will ease swelling, discomfort, or other symptoms as you heal. You should avoid spitting, smoking, and using a straw following tooth extractions. Follow-up visits at our Los Angeles, CA office will be scheduled to ensure your mouth is healing correctly.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
