Wisdom tooth

Removal of Visdomstann in Oslo

Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are often problematic because they often do not have enough space to grow into the mouth properly. This can lead to pain, infections and other problems. At Clinica Smile, we offer wisdom tooth surgery to help you get rid of the pain and protect the health of your teeth.

What is a Wisdom Tooth?

Wisdom teeth, the last molars to erupt, usually between the ages of 18 and 22. Although they are not necessary for the chewing function, their location far back in the mouth can create challenges for good oral hygiene. They are known for their unpredictability and can create challenges such as infections and lack of space.

Problems with wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth can cause complications due to limited space and misalignment of the jaw. This can lead to pain, inflammation and damage to neighboring teeth. When partially erupted, wisdom teeth can be exposed to bacterial attack and cause pain and swelling.

Symptoms of wisdom tooth problems

Common symptoms include tooth pain or tenderness, bad breath, swelling and redness of the gums, and an unpleasant taste when chewing. Other less common symptoms may be swollen lymph glands and difficulty opening the mouth.

When Should Wisdom Teeth Be Removed?

Wisdom teeth are recommended to be removed if they cause or are likely to cause problems. An examination and panoramic X-ray can help assess the need for removal. Early removal can prevent complications and contribute to an easier procedure.

Surgical Removal of Wisdom Teeth

Some wisdom teeth require surgical removal. This process involves lifting the gum for better access, possibly removing some bone, and splitting the tooth for easier removal. The treatment is painless, but can be more time-consuming than simple pulling.

Anesthesia and Posttreatment

Local anesthesia is used during the removal of wisdom teeth. For those with a fear of the dentist, we offer sedation or anesthesia. After the procedure, it may be normal to have some swelling and discomfort, which can be alleviated with painkillers.

Prices and Reimbursement for Wisdom Teeth Removal

The price for wisdom teeth removal varies based on the complexity of the procedure. Helfo can offer reimbursement for surgical removal. We offer a pre-treatment cost estimate to help you plan.

Advice after Wisdom Teeth Extraction

After the removal of a wisdom tooth, avoid touching the wound and maintain good oral hygiene. Avoid strenuous physical activity and smoking to promote healing. In case of severe pain or persistent symptoms, contact the dentist for further treatment.

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.
