Wisdom Teeth Westfield NJ

By the age of 18 the average adult has 32 teeth: 16 teeth on top and 16 teeth on bottom. Each tooth in the mouth has a specific name and function. The teeth in the front of the mouth (incisors, canine, and bicuspid teeth) are ideal for grasping and biting food into smaller pieces. The back teeth (molar teeth) are used to grind food into a consistency suitable for swallowing.

For more information or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Gold, call our office in Westfield, NJ at Ronen Gold, DDS Phone Number 908-232-5551, or Request an Appointment Online.

The average mouth is made to hold only 28 teeth. It can be painful when 32 teeth try to fit in a mouth that is meant to hold only 28 teeth. These four other teeth are your third molars, also known as “wisdom teeth”.

Why Should I Have My Wisdom Teeth Removed?

Wisdom teeth are the last teeth to erupt within the mouth. When they align properly and gum tissue is healthy, wisdom teeth do not have to be removed. Unfortunately, this is not what generally happens. The extraction of wisdom teeth is necessary when they are prevented from properly erupting within the mouth. They may grow sideways, only partially emerge from the gum, or can even remain trapped beneath the gum and bone. Impacted teeth can take many positions in the bone as they attempt to find a pathway that will allow them to successfully erupt. An impacted tooth simply means that it is “stuck”.

These poorly positioned impacted teeth can cause many problems. When they are partially erupted, the opening around the teeth allows bacteria to grow and will eventually cause an infection. The result: swelling, stiffness, pain, and illness. The pressure from the erupting wisdom teeth may move other teeth and disrupt the orthodontic or natural alignment of teeth. The most serious problem occurs when tumors or cysts form around the impacted wisdom teeth, resulting in the destruction of the jawbone and healthy teeth. Removal of the impacted teeth usually resolves these problems. Early removal is recommended to avoid complications.

Wisdom Teeth Presentation

To provide you with a better understanding of wisdom teeth, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to wisdom teeth are discussed.

Wisdom Teeth Presentation

Oral Examination

With an oral examination and x-rays of the mouth, Dr. Gold can evaluate the position of the wisdom teeth and predict if there are present or future potential problems. Studies have shown that early evaluation and treatment result in a superior outcome for the patient. Patients are generally first evaluated in the mid-teenage years by their dentist, orthodontist, or by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

All outpatient surgery is performed under appropriate anesthesia to maximize patient comfort. Dr. Gold is trained, licensed, and highly experienced in providing various types of anesthesia for patients.

Removal

In most cases, the removal of wisdom teeth is performed under local anesthesia, laughing gas (nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia), or general anesthesia. These options, as well as the surgical risks (i.e., sensory nerve damage, sinus complications), will be discussed with you before the procedure is performed. Once the teeth are removed, the gum is sutured. To help control bleeding bite down on the gauze placed in your mouth. You will rest under our supervision in the office until you are ready to be taken home. Upon discharge your postoperative kit will include postoperative instructions, a prescription for pain medication, antibiotics, and a follow-up appointment in one week. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call us at Ronen Gold, DDS Phone Number 908-232-5551.

Patient Review By Rachel B

Super friendly and nice staff. Got my wisdom teeth out and they talked to me the entire time to distract me from the surgery. Felt very comfortable in the room with Dr.Gold. They also walked me out to my car with my designated driver.

Patient Review By Karissa M

Jessica was the nicest office staff members I Have ever encountered at a dentist office. Just super helpful, patient and kind. Dr. Gold was straight forward and answered my questions before I even had to ask. Most doctors seem rude and don’t really talk you through what they would be doing during procedure and just impatient. But I didn’t get that vibe from him. First impression so far so good. I’m getting 2 wisdom teeth pulled so Hopefully that all goes well. Also, I appreciate the office following all guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Office is sooooo clean. That’s the cleanest and neatest doctors office I ever been too. I wish they did regular dental services there I would switch dentists in a heartbeat. Cleanliness and great customer service is what I look for and I received just that.

Patient Review By Loren a

This was my second wisdom tooth extraction. I went the first time with a lot of pain and discomfort for a second option in how to remove my wisdom tooth. He was very confident in his approach which was different from the first opinion I got. I was happy to hear his treatment plan and even happier after the procedure. Both times it was extremely quick and flawless. Dr. Ronan gold and his staff are highly recommended. You will not be disappointed, you are in extremely good hands with his practice. Thank you for making my experience excellent!

Patient Review By Jesika S

All staff was very friendly from beginning to end. The office is immaculate with a wonderful aroma that resembles fresh cut mahogany (no doctor office smell). Dr Gold is very thorough with all before and after care instructions and always asked if I had any questions as was his assistant. The procedure was also quick and painless and I'm already recovering quickly as well. I would confidently recommend Dr. Gold and his practice to anyone in need of oral surgery.

Patient Review By Kate V

I had been referred to a different oral surgeon in town w left me feeling really concerned about the process and seemed to look at me as just a number. I came to Dr Gold for a 2nd opinion and was impressed from the get go. He explains everything patiently, has a great sense of humor and v calm and immediately put me at ease. I felt v confident I was in good hands and day of the surgery I was not wrong. Excellent doctor and even called me the evening of the surgery to make sure all was ok and no issues. Highly recommend and while I hope to require no more oral surgery I would 100% return to him without any question. Thank you to the whole team for such care and service.

Entire experience was great, including front office, assistant, and Dr. Gold. Personable, professional, and caring service. Took my request for tooth extraction at a moment's notice on a terrible day of snow and slush. Dr. Gold followed up in early evening via phone to see how I was going - fantastic. This is a "Best in Class" office.

It’s day two after having four wisdom teeth extracted, and i only have mild discomfortI was scared and not only was the staff very friendly and knowledgeable (especially with sorting out insurance), but the doctor took time to explain and mitigate risks, and the surgery was fast and smooth. The instructions after were thorough, and the doctor even called to check in.
