Bad breath is often constipation

Recent Danish research shows that the explanation of bad breath, often to be found further down than in the oral cavity. The culprit may be constipation, which is the case in up to every fourth patient complaining of bad breath. The solution is usually a healthier lifestyle.

Senior physician at the Surgical Department at Hillerød Hospital Tarmlaboratorium in Elsinore, dr.with. Dennis Raahave estimates that 5-10 % of all danes suffer from chronic constipation, while approx. 20 % of them also have bad breath due to the accumulation of digested food. He experiences most often it is the patients ' spouses, who must go to confession and tell the patient that he or she has bad breath. But it comes often as a surprise to both parties, there is a connection between intestinal problems and bad breath, as most people associate the symptoms with the oral cavity or the stomach.

Western lifestyle will get the blame
When many danes suffer from constipation, this is because according to Dennis Raahave very much our western lifestyle, with sedentary work, wrong eating habits and our perverse relationship to the restroom. If the patients with hidden or chronic constipation needs to be the bad breath rid, it requires that they get a well-functioning bowel. In the quest for good breath helps exercise, high fiber and low fat diet, and intake of fluid each hour.

Tarmspecialist instead of the Dentist
Dentists who can't find the explanation for the bad breath in the oral cavity of their patients, are advised to ask whether the patient has digestive problems, stomach ache or feel bloated, uncomfortable, tired and lethargic. If the patient can recognize some of these symptoms, should he or she be examined by a tarmspecialist.

Funding rules by moving from municipal to private dentist

Question:

I have long considered moving our children (11+13 years) to a private dentist, because I think that goes too long between visits (over 1 year) and if a problem occurs, it is almost impossible to get a time :-(
Now skoletandplejen made a new structure, so that the children are only going to study every 15-16 months. I think it is very important that the teeth be examined, especially now where they are almost only brushes even.

How is the funding rules by moving to a private dentist ?

Mvt.A concerned mother

Answer:

Dear concerned mother

For children and young people under 16 have a free choice to private dentist with a self-payment of 35 %, it will say that the municipality provides subsidies of 65 %. For children and young people of 16 and 17 years old have a free choice of dental care without any co-payment and reimbursement. There must always be an agreement with the municipality within the switch. Contact the municipal dental care in your municipality.

Complications after root canal treatment. Who pays?

7. september 2009  
Filed in Complaints

Question:

I have made a root canal in my tooth, and when this began to crumble, I made a crown instead (in the month of February 2009). Now I have got an infection in the same tooth, which has developed into a large tooth abscess. It has been incredibly painful and has been on the pencilinkur and pain. I have today (d. 7/9-09) has been at the dentist and get told that it is a gum disease. I have now examined Netdoktor, what this is because and that is that the cause of gum disease is to continue hiding dead tissue and thus the bacteria in the rodkanalens nooks. It will then say that the dentist in the dawn of time has not made my root canal well enough. Can it be right that I should pay for a tandrodsbehandling, or closer to the operation??? It is when those who have not done their crafts well enough, which caused my problem today. There must be a form of guarantee. Hope you can answer my question. With friendly greetings f
ra a frustrated Sisse...

Answer:

Dear Sisse,

There is usually no warranty on dental treatment. Your dentist has probably made his job properly, but there are limits to where we can reach with our instruments. There is one more main canals in the roots according to the tandtype we are talking about. And there are also these small bikanaler where we can't reach with rodfilen. Some times it is so unfortunate that there will be infection in them. The only way to reach them is via this small rodoperation.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Answer:

Dear Else,

If you f.ex. grinds his teeth at night, tooth is loaded and feels sore to chew on. That does not suggest inflammation if it does not display anything on x-ray and the nerve is in order. It is not necessary to complement the study with the scanning.

Parents do not take responsibility for the children's dental health

1. september 2009  
Filed in News

Two out of five parents defying Tandlægeforeningens recommendations, and does not help their children to brush their teeth, shows a new study carried out by Codan forsikring. In the following the study has almost every fourth child under 11 years of age in day one or more holes in the teeth. While 44 percent of all children eat candy, two to three times a week.

Parents do not help with the brushing
“Our customers are generally very good at reporting their children's dental injuries and are actually worried about something happening with their children's teeth, which is very positive. Therefore, it can be wonder that many parents have lost interest in brushing their children at a time, where children have the greatest need for it,” says Codans press officer, Jens Nüchel, and refers to, that children get permanent teeth from 6 years of age.

A child's baby teeth will be replaced when the child is between six and twelve years. And the child's fine motor skills are not developed enough, so that it can deal with brushing until the child is about 10 years. Therefore, the recommendation is for all parents that they must help the child with brushing until the child is at least 10 years. In the 12-14 years of age comes the child's tolvårstænder, which sits behind the seksårstænderne. And until the child can hold the teeth properly clean, the parents should assist with brushing at least once a day.

In Tandlægeforeningen you are aware of the problem and one that the parents in the so-called “zero-gaps-generation, has put the responsibility for their children's dental health, when the whole 40 percent of the parents does not help children to keep the teeth clean.

“The so-called ‘zero-gaps-the generation that has grown up with a flour-rinses in the school, has been adult. In the generation, there is a tendency to put the responsibility for their children's teeth on to the dentist; the dentist, who makes sure that the kids don't get holes. A portion parents in this generation do not look brushing as something they must perform for their children, because so few of them even have experienced to have gaps in the teeth. Dental care is still often placed in schools or going to schools, but the intervals between the children's visits to the dentist in recent years has increased. It is therefore all the more important that the parents assume their responsibility to help the children with brushing until children are 10 or 12 years,” says odontologisk consultant in Tandlægeforeningen Birthe Cortsen.

The parents do not know what it is that threatens their children's teeth
“Over 60 percent of the parents cares about the kids falls and strikes the teeth, while the real risk of tandskade lies in the fact that the parents actually fill their children with candy. There is an exaggerated fear of children fall and hurt himself,” says press officer Jens Nüchel, Codan.

The kids eat sugary cases several times a week
Codan Insurance is started with a general survey on child health, which among other things has a focus on the problems with rising obesity and poor dental health. One of the reasons seems to be that the children will be fed with candy from they are quite tender.

In the following study get three percent of all children between 0 and 2 years of candy daily. While 32 percent of this age group being fed with sweets, cakes or other sugary cases, two to three times a week.

1 out of 10 children between 10 and 12 years eat sweets daily. And for the 13 to 15 year old children, the figure is 11 percent, while 12 percent of the 16 to 17 year-olds eating sweets every day. Overall, eat 44 percent of all children sweets two to three times a week.

The survey is conducted in the period 16. – 18. June 2009. And the 1018 respondents participated in the study.
