What is Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Wisdom teeth are a person's last two teeth, which usually appear in the early adult years. Located in the rear areas of both arches, wisdom teeth, or third molars, commonly lack adequate room to completely emerge and are difficult to keep clean. They typically require extraction to maintain overall oral wellness. Wisdom teeth might be impacted (stuck beneath the gum tissues or bone), poorly aligned, or not able to develop as they should, resulting in many dental disorders. Dr. Husam Elias provides third molar removals for Los Angeles, CA patients to enhance oral health and defend against jaw pain and deterioration. If you or a member of your family have painful or ingrown wisdom teeth, schedule an appointment at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts to learn about your treatment options.
What Happens During Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Extractions are typically performed in one of our modern surgical suites under a combination of local anesthesia and sedation dentistry services. During your surgery consultation, we can discuss the sedation methods available and help you choose the best method. In a simple extraction, our skilled oral surgeon will loosen the wisdom tooth with a device known as an elevator and then gently remove it from the socket. A surgical extraction involves making incisions into your gums to allow Dr. Elias better access to the tooth. The tooth may be sectioned into smaller pieces to minimize the impact on your jaw during removal. Once the tooth has been extracted, the affected gum tissues may be sutured, and care instructions will be provided to you or the adult driving you home. As you heal, avoiding spitting, using a straw, and stopping smoking or vaping are essential. These activities can create a "dry socket" when the blood clot at the removal location is pulled out.

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.
