About Wisdom Teeth Removal
An individual's last two teeth, which commonly show up in the early adult years, are referred to as wisdom teeth. Situated in the rear areas of both arches, wisdom teeth, which are additionally known as third molars, commonly lack adequate room to completely emerge, are difficult to keep clean, and can 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 Pasadena, 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 The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery to learn about your personalized options.
Am I A Candidate For Wisdom Teeth Removal?
Usually, wisdom teeth extractions are recommended for patients who are 17 – 25 years old. Not all patients' molars will always necessitate removal; however, leaving impacted wisdom teeth in the mouth can result in unnecessary oral issues in the long run. Dr. Elias will generally propose wisdom teeth extraction for those with:
- Completely or partially impacted wisdom teeth within the gums or bone
- Insufficient room to allow problem-free third molar eruption
- Overcrowded teeth
- The development of a lump in the neck
- Gum inflammation (pericoronitis), facial swelling, or TMJ discomfort
- Cavities in the wisdom teeth
- Difficulty ensuring that wisdom teeth are clean

Pacific Coast Center Reviews
Dr. Elias is the best! I went in for a Wisdom Tooth extraction and had the best experience. They have a wonderful team that is kind, patient and walks you through the process. I am on day 2 of recovery and am doing great. I found Dr. Elias through the Delta Dental PPO and I feel so grateful. Thank you Dr. Elias and your amazing team.
Dr. Elias has done two extractions for my elderly mother and done an excellent job both times.
Highly professional front office and back office staff. Doctor and surgical team on my extractions were as good as I had hoped. Overall the most pleasant unpleasant experience I have ever had... i.e. the staff was great... getting the teeth yanked was not!
Went in for a tooth extraction and sinus lift to prepare for a dental implant. Excellent service all around. They were able to calm my nerves and made the process so much easier than I thought. Highly recommend.

What Happens During Wisdom Teeth Removal?
The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery carries out third molar removals while the individual is under local anesthesia, but this surgery may also be paired with oral-conscious or IV sedation techniques to improve comfort. Most cases of wisdom teeth removal call for an excision approach, most notably if the teeth are impacted, have arched roots, or are firmly attached to the bone. When Dr. Elias makes an opening in the gum tissues to get to the tooth, he may section it into parts, which allows for more effective removal. Depending on your personal needs, each of the wisdom teeth could be removed during the same session. Stitches could be placed to close off the extraction sites and promote the recovery period. Our incredibly experienced team will supply you with post-treatment instructions to adhere to during the next several days.
Patients who require further types of sedation to stay comfortable during their session will need to bring a responsible friend to take them home. During the initial several days after the procedure, it's crucial to restrict spitting, sipping using a straw, choosing hot or cold foods and drinks, and to stop smoking and vaping. These activities will likely pull out the blood clot at the removal location and cause an issue called "dry socket." It is expected to notice jaw swelling and pain following third molar extractions, which can be lessened with prescription or drugstore pain relievers and cold compresses held to the face. Our dental professionals will provide you with instructions to allow you to take care of your gums while you heal and arrange a follow-up visit to monitor your surgical sites as they heal.
