Tooth extractions may sound unpleasant, but with today’s advanced dental procedures, Stavanger Dental can perform wisdom teeth removal and extractions for teeth that are decayed with minimal pain and disturbance. We never suggest extracting teeth unless doing so would benefit your oral and overall health. The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to chewing, problems with your jaw joint and shifting of teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
If it is important to perform an extraction – for instance, in the case of decayed or turned wisdom teeth that won’t grow in properly – our dentists will communicate with you clearly about why the procedure is important and what, exactly, the oral surgery involves. In most cases, wisdom teeth begin to erupt from the gum between the ages of 17 and 24, causing major oral issues if not corrected. Our friendly and dedicated team offers you advice and support at every stage of your dental treatment.
Problems that can be caused by poorly positioned wisdom teeth include:
1. Tooth decay
2. Gum disease
3. Recurring mouth infections
Wisdom Teeth Extraction Process
Our dedicated team at Stavanger Dental will discuss what happens before, during and after the removal of your wisdom teeth and help you decide if local or general anaesthetic is best for you.

Wisdom Tooth Removal: Is It Necessary?
Many times, wisdom teeth do not have enough room to grow properly. This is one of the main reasons why dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth. The wisdom tooth can grow at various angles in the jaw, and sometimes even horizontally. If it does not have enough space to emerge, it can become trapped within the jaw and can result in infection.
