Dental biopsy in Oslo

Biopsy is performed to examine unusual tissues or lesions in the oral cavity. This may be necessary to detect cancer, inflammation or other serious conditions. At Clinica Smile, biopsies are performed by our experienced dentists with the latest technology and equipment.


What is biopsy?

Biopsy is a simple and painless procedure where the dentist takes a sample of the unusual tissue or lesion in the oral cavity using a biopsy needle. The sample is then examined by a pathologist to determine if it is cancer, an infection, or something else. If necessary, our dentists will refer you to a specialist for further treatment.

Why is biopsy important?

Biopsy is important because it can contribute to early diagnosis and treatment of serious conditions such as cancer or inflammation in the oral cavity. The earlier a condition is detected, the greater the chance of complete recovery. Biopsy can also help to confirm a diagnosis and plan the right treatment.

How to prepare for a biopsy?

Before the biopsy, our dentists will perform a complete examination of your mouth and take the necessary X-rays. They will also give you specific instructions on how to prepare for the procedure. This may include fasting for a few hours before the procedure or stopping certain medications. Be sure to follow your dentist's instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results.

What can you expect during the biopsy procedure?

Biopsy is usually a quick and painless procedure. Before the procedure, the dentist will give you a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Next, they will take a small sample of the unusual tissue or lesion using a biopsy needle. The procedure usually takes a few minutes to complete.

Dental Health Tips:

  • Brush your teeth properly: Brush your teeth thoroughly twice a day for at least two minutes each time. Use a fluoride toothpaste to strengthen tooth enamel.
  • Clean between the teeth: Use dental floss or interdental brushes daily to remove plaque and food debris that the brush cannot reach.
  • Visit the dentist regularly: Go to the dentist at least twice a year for routine check-ups and professional teeth cleaning.
  • Eat a healthy diet: Reduce your intake of sugary foods and drinks that can lead to tooth decay. Eat more fruits, vegetables and calcium-rich foods to maintain strong teeth.
  • Avoid tobacco products: Smoking and sniffing can cause dental problems and gum disease. Try to stop or reduce the use of these products for better dental health.
  • Protect your teeth during activities: Use a mouth guard during sports activities or when you perform activities with a risk of tooth damage.
  • Care for dentures: If you have dentures, be sure to clean them regularly and store them safely to avoid damage and infection.
