Answer:

Dear user

It is very common that the teeth can be sore after a new plastfyldning. Some of the symptoms up to 6 months and the other will never be symptom-free. If this has great genes, the tooth probably rodbehandles. It is always a good idea to seek out a dentist if you are in doubt or in pain. I don't know how many fillings it is in your case, but maybe tyggefladen be adjusted, if you chew too hard on the teeth, it can also cause symptoms.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring

Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring covers, according to the rules of complaint and erstatningsloven, damages in connection with the examination and treatment by dentists.

Here you can read about how the system works for you as a patient. This guide can only be seen as a simplified introduction into the rules, since it would be too extensive to have all the details. You should consult with your own dentist if you want further information.

You will also find the whole scheme described on Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikrings website.

The insurance covers
Injuries occurring in the period after the 1. January 2004 are covered, if it is made in connection with treatment by a private practice dentist or in connection with the treatment of Regionstandplejen (ex. Amtstandplejen), in the municipal tandplejeordninger or at one of the universities ' dental schools.

Is the injury happened before 1. January 2004, is only covered if it is made in connection with treatment by a private dentist.

When you get the replacement
Although the compensation scheme only covers the damages done in connection with the examination and treatment by a dentist. You have however the possibility to obtain compensation, even though the damage is not due to the fault from the dentist's side.

If you suffered an injury in connection with a dental treatment, compensation may be awarded if it is deemed that the damage is a strong likelihood that is caused in one of the following ways:

  • If the damage could have been avoided by a different treatment, which in the given situation would have been the best possible.
  • If the damage is due to fault or failure in the technical equipment and tools.
  • If the damage could have been avoided by using another equally effective treatment, technique or method.
  • If the damage is very rare, and serious in relation to the illness being treated, and thus goes beyond what you should reasonably tolerate.

Time period
In order to be entitled to damages, should the damage be notified no later than five years after you have got acquainted with it. There must not be more than ten years have passed since the injury was sustained.

In case of accident
You will come to harm during an accident at a dentist's office, which is not a part of the professional treatment, for example. by falling on a slippery floor, can only be compensated, if there is a fault from the clinic's side.

What compensation is available for
Compensation is paid according to the rules of Erstatningsansvarsloven.

  • Compensation is paid for the cost of repairing the damage, ie. the extra costs that are a result of the damage.
  • In addition, there may be compensation for other expenses that are a result of the injury, as the costs of medicine.
  • There can be compensation for loss of earnings and loss of earning capacity. In addition, there may be granted compensation for pain and suffering and for permanent injury.
  • There is normally provided only for compensation, if the compensation is greater than 1,000 kr. For any damages in connection with the treatment of regionstandplejen, the municipal tandplejeordninger or on the universities ' dental schools will only be provided compensation, if the amount is over $ 10,000.

What is not eligible for compensation
There will be no compensation for the cost of the treatment you came for to get made. These costs are always for own account. The same applies, if the treatment will have to be done, because of one reason or another, failed.

You also can not obtain compensation for the consequences of the accident or illness you have received treatment for, or if the treatment has not led to the expected result.

If you for some reason believe that the treatment has been inadequate, you can possibly. require the fee paid back. This requirement will then not be covered by the insurance, but must be made in connection with a complaint to tandlægenævnet in your region.
Tandlægenævnet will then take a decision as to whether you should get the money again for the treatment you have received and wish to complain.

Read more about how you complaints to the regional tandlægenævn.

How to seek compensation
If you believe that you have the right to compensation, you or together with your dentist fill out a skadesanmeldelsesblanket and send it to:

Tandlægeforeningens Patientskadeforsikring
Svanemøllevej 85
DK-2900 Hellerup

The processing time will normally be between eight and twelve weeks – in complex cases there must be expected a somewhat longer processing time.

Remove visdomstand close to bihulen

1. July 2009  
Filed in Teeth

Question:

Hello.
I am going to the dentist on Thursday, and ha (fol.a.)removed the last visdomstand. It is filled with holes. My dentist says it sits close to the bihulen... I suffer from dental phobia and have already hurt in the stomach. It sounds really creepy!!
Is there some ricici – as my dentist will not/have told me...??? Evs. in order not to make me more afraid???

mvh Marianne

Answer:

Dear Marianne

No there is not some particular risks of removing a tooth which is close to the bihulen. It is important that the dentist takes precautions regardless of how the tooth is. In some cases, he get a hole in the lining of the bihulen, if the tooth is so close. But it is not something that is dangerous. And when you get among other things some precautions you should follow after tandudtrækningen, and then grow it well together again. It is certainly not something you should be afraid of.

Hope that my answer reassures you a little.

With kind regards
