Wisdom Teeth

Third Molars

What are wisdom teeth?

Third molars are commonly referred to as wisdom teeth. They are usually the last teeth to develop and are located in the back of your mouth, behind your second molars. Their development is usually completed between the middle teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom.

The staff at the Guilford office are so kind and patient. We never even had to wait more than a few minutes for our appointments. Their communication throughout the process was great too! They went above and beyond to make us and our intellectually disabled son feel comfortable and relaxed during a very stressful time. Dr. Heifitz-Li was exceptional throughout the whole process and we feel very lucky he was the one to remove our son's wisdom teeth and front tooth. He clearly loves his profession and puts his heart into his work!

I had such a great experience with Coastal Connecticut Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Office and I would definitely recommend getting your surgery done with their team. Their whole office provides such a friendly atmosphere that you don't want to miss out on because great service is what makes me stay. I am so appreciative on their staff's kindness and respect when I had my consultation and surgery here. My surgery went well and all the information was clearly emailed to me regarding pre surgery and post surgery. They have great communication and is always there to answer patient's questions right away during their office hours.

Dr. Salomon and staff were amazing! Had all 4 wisdom teeth taken out, 2 of which were high risk along the nerve. Executed the surgery perfectly. Highly recommend! Came all the way from New York City for the procedure!

I cannot speak highly enough about the Guilford office. The ladies at the desk were so helpful and spoke to me with a smile, even when complications arose with some paperwork. Doctor Salomon and the surgical assistants eased all of my nerves going into my extraction and even had me laughing before it started. Doctor Salomon is very clear with instructions and answered all of my questions at my consultation and follow-up. The surgery was very quick and had no complications. I had very little discomfort after extraction and almost no swelling. Again, I very highly recommend Doctor Salomon and his staff in guilford.

My wisdom teeth removal went as smooth as could be. The front desk staff was diligent & knowledgable and the wait time was slim to none. Kathy, the surgical assistant, was incredibly nice, professional, and reassuring. Dr. Salomon is an absolute pro. My teeth were out in less than 20 minutes and I had minimal pain afterwards. Even when I was loopy from the anesthesia directly after the procedure, the staff was nothing but fun & professional. I would recommend Hamden-Shoreline to anyone.

I'm glad we decided to choose Hamden Shoreline for our child's wisdom teeth removal. The office staff was wonderful. Nancy in the Guilford office spent a lot of time on the phone with me due to my son's hectic filming schedule and reassured me that he was in good hands. She went out of her way to make sure to get us an appointment. The two Ally's that assistant Dr. Salomon were wonderful. My son was very scared and they went above and beyond to help him through this process. The office staff was very efficient and helpful with the appointments. I would recommend Dr Salomon to all my friends.
