The braces for orthodontics

27. november 2009  
Filed in Articles

In the past, orthodontics something that was reserved for children, and it was thought that it was too late to get fixed teeth when you were a little older. But it has the technological development and new types of braces made. Today you can get fixed teeth, regardless of age.

Treatment
The processing time depends on how much needs to be paid up on the teeth, and most can expect a processing time of approx. 12 to 18 months. In the period, one must regularly to the control at the dentist, where tandstillingen checked and your braces to be tightened up. One must reckon with a visit to the dentist each month.

After completion of treatment with hanger, one must count on having to make use of a shine to natbrug, in order to maintain the teeth in the new position. Some have also mounted a thin thread on the back of the front teeth.

Prices
The price for a treatment with real stålbøjle depends on how much work needs to be done and will typically be between 25,000 and 40,000 crowns of a practicing orthodontist in the orthodontics. For special cosmetic braces, one should expect an additional expense. A transparent ceramic braces will typically cost between 4,000 and 5,000 dollars extra per. jaw, and an interior hanger costs approximately. 20.000 dollars extra per. jaw.

Types of braces
The ordinary metal/steel braces, often called the “railway” in the vernacular, is still the most effective hangers. And thus one can expect to be døjes with the hoops in a shorter time, than if you choose one of the more cosmetically acceptable hangers. And it is also the cheapest treatment option.

There are both permanent types of braces, as stålbøjlen is a good example of that. And then there are also skinnere that is not being mounted fixed in the teeth. Most adults should expect that it will be necessary with a jammed hanger.

Metal-/Stålbøjlen

Metal/Stålbøjlen

Metal or steel braces
This is the traditional hanger, as most of us know of, which may not always specifically gender to look at. But it is still the most effective hanger. And with it will obtain you the quickest and typically also the cheapest treatment.

Guldbøjlen

Guldbøjlen

Guldbøjler
Guldbøjlen does not differ significantly from the common steel braces, in addition to the color, of course, is different. It is probably a matter of taste for the individual whether you will make use of a guldbøjle instead of a regular stålbøjle.

Damon og Damon 3

Damon hanger

Damon braces
Damon is the name of a manufacturer of the hangers, who have further developed the traditional stålbøjle, so that there can be performed several treatment options. One of the main benefits for the patient is that they have developed a locking mechanism, so the patient is not hampered as much of the rubber bands or steel wires, which must maintain the continuous wire in place.

The new Damon 3 bracket is partially transparent, and can be seen in the right side of the picture.

Gennemsigtig bøjle

Transparent hanger

Transparent ceramic braces
You can also get totally transparent ceramic braces which are not as visible as stålbøjlerne. There must, however, be expected a little longer processing time.

Indvendig bøjle

Inside hanger

Inside hanger
Another option is to place stålbøjlen on the back of the teeth. But it is an expensive and technically difficult solution.

Invisalign bøjlen

Invisalign your braces

Transparent shine
You can also get transparent plastskinnere, which bears on the teeth most of the day's 24 hours. These skinnere so must be replaced periodically. This is a very expensive option, and the price is likely to be around 50,000 dollars of a practicing orthodontist.

Two-year-old boy may not like to get brushed teeth

25. november 2009  
Filed in Children

Question:

Hi all of you
Our boy of 2 years has never really liked to get brushed teeth and now that he has become more independent it is almost completely impossible without that we feel that we are making attacks on him. We try to sing, read books, exchange ml alm toothbrush and electric but he cries and howls and squirms. Finally, I hold his head ml my legs and get it over with. But I would like to have it to be a good daily hyggestund and not a fight.

Kind regards Pernille

Answer:

Dear Pernille,

I think you approach it in the right way. It would be much worse if your son got holes in my teeth because Of not brushing them. He will eventually give up and accept to get brushed teeth. There are several parents in the same situation as you. It is very frustrating, but hold out because it pays off in the end.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Very sensitive tooth when I brush your teeth

25. november 2009  
Filed in Teeth

Question:

My 3. tooth from the middle of the overmund is very sensitive when I brush your teeth, take the cream or feel with your tongue but not when I chew. Go regularly to the dentist and have had several images, which all show a healthy tooth, so no treatment is offered. Any precedents?

v. h. Carsten

Answer:

Dear Carsten,

It suggests you have sensitive tooth necks. It happens when you use the wrong tandbørsteteknik and the root becomes exposed. The gentlest method is to use small circular movements with your toothbrush against the teeth. Your dentist may want. try to treat your tooth with Fluoride to see if it helps your symptoms.

Question 2:

Hi Joan
Thank you for your reply. Fluorbehandling I've got the former and it works.
Amazes me as to the symptoms only by one tooth.

What is general anesthesia?

25. november 2009  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

What is general anesthesia?

Allan

Answer:

Dear Allan,

The word anesthesia has its origin from the Greek word narkosis, which means stunning. The professional word for narcosis, Anesthesia, which is also derived from a Greek word, anaisthesia, which means “no sense”. Anesthesiology is the study of bedøvelsesmidlers use. And doctors who have undergone basic training and rotation, can then specialize in anesthesiology, which is a duration of 4½ years.

There are many kinds of stunning. You can stun the local, delbedøvelse, which is to say that the patient is in consciousness, and only a certain area of the body is numbed. This seeing most at the dentist, when the dentist only stun the part of the mouth.

Another option is so that you call for general anesthesia, or a helbedøvelse, which is to say that the patient is not conscious during the procedure. At a helbedøvelse get the patient injected sleeping pills into a vein, then the patient in the course of a very short time will fall asleep. A helbedøvelse can also be given through a mask for the face, where the patient is given a bedøvegas.

General anesthesia for dental treatment can be given to virtually all patients, excluded patients with some specific chronic ailments such as asthma, smokers lungs, bronchitis, metabolism disorders, heart disease as well as severe obesity.

There are often some risks and side effects of anesthesia and the most common side effects are nausea and vomiting. Therefore, the patient should always be fixed before the anesthesia. The substances you use today has, however, reduced the extent of nausea and vomiting considerably, so that this only happens in rare cases.

In rare cases, deaths associated with anaesthesia, but since the reason will most often be a combination of surgery, anesthesia and the patient's state of health. Statistically speaking, when one does not take into account the patient's health condition or procedure type, the total mortality up to six days after stunning approx. 1 out of 10,000. They do not have other diseases, and should not have made a major surgery, the risk is significantly smaller. The risks of an intervention by the dentist, for example, cannot be compared with the risks of an open heart surgery.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Big hole after removed visdomstand

25. november 2009  
Filed in Mouth

Question:

Hello
I've just been at the dental school in copenhagen where I had removed the lower visdomstand pga. inflammation. I got rid of my stitches in for 4 days ago and have not seen the scale before now where I was very shocked that there was a big hole. It is so deep that I would argue that ease be able to get the leftovers down in the hole. Is this normal? The hole is not just a depression but a great hole, as if the tooth is just removed.

Greetings Mia

Answer:

Dear Mia,

Yes it is completely normal. It will eventually completely disappear, and the gums and bone heals. But there has probably been a lack of communication from your behandlers side of the page, you are not better informed about the progress. But you are always welcome to apply again at dentistry, if there occurs some problems.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Dental care for homeless people and social vulnerable spreads

24. november 2009  
Filed in News

It is no longer only at Bisserne in Copenhagen, that homeless people can get their teeth. Aalborg, Randers, Odense and Aarhus, have now also been granted money to tandplejetilbud to the social vulnerable. At the same time the Copenhagen look forward to another clinic.

– It is absolutely amazing, that socially disadvantaged people in several places in the country can now get their teeth. Homelessness is not a special phenomenon in Copenhagen. On the contrary. There will be more and more homeless in other major Danish cities. And it is incredibly gratifying that dental care is so well represented in the appropriations for social vulnerable, says dentist Peter Østergaard, who is the chairman of the Bisserne, who operates a dental clinic in the Men's home in Copenhagen.

Even if the joy is also great in Randers, Aalborg and Odense, are the three cities at the same time disappointing that they have been denied on their applications for the operation of tandklinikkerne.

– It is scandalous that we haven't got the money for the operation of the clinic. It seems the foolish thing to give us money to establish a clinic and, at the same time ensure that we can actually operate the clinic, says the dentist Reiff new center established, which is one of the main responsible for the project in Odense. Dentist Majbritt Jensen from the project in the municipality of Aalborg, backs up about it.

The dedicated dentists are now working to ensure funds for the operation, so dental care for the homeless also can be a reality in Randers, Aalborg and Odense.

The anesthetic against dental phobia

21. november 2009  
Filed in Choice of dentist

Question:

I suffer from dental phobia
much would hear whether I could get general anesthesia.

Majbrit

Answer:

Dear Majbrit

It is the absolute last resort when you choose to put a patient in the general anesthesia. There are other forms of treatment of dental phobia, blah. hypnosis, acupuncture or premedication with a sedative before each treatment. There are certain dental clinics around the country that offer general anesthesia. Of course it would be best for you in the future to be treated by a private dentist without a general anesthesia, so try and talk with your dentist about what it is you're so afraid of.

A similar question is previously answered here in the letterbox, and there you can see a short list of some dentists who offer general anesthesia.

The dentist must know everything about your medication use

4. november 2009  
Filed in News

The dentist need to know if you are taking medication or suffer from something. Many patients forget to inform about their medication use, but it can prove to be crucial to the outcome of a dental treatment that the dentist is informed. Up against every tenth dane takes blood-thinning medication to prevent blood clots. But while blodpropperne be prevented, there may occur another problem – namely, increased tendency to bleeding. The bleeding can for example occur, when the patient must have a tooth pulled or made an in-depth cleaning.

It has been quite a common practice for patients on blood-thinning medication should keep a break in their medication use, before they should have made an intervention at the dentist. New studies now show that there is greater risk to stop treatment than the bleeding, which possibly. incurred by the crackdown, says overtandlæge and orthodontist at kæbekirurgisk afdeling at Glostrup Hospital Simon Storgård Jensen.

Dentists must take their own precautions when they are treating patients in antiplatelet treatment. There is essential and usually relatively simple to stop the bleeding before the patient leaves the clinic. Numerous drugs may also increase the blødningstendensen, and therefore it is important to know the message, so you can be extra careful, especially with the use of analgesics and antibiotics, highlighting the Simon Storgård Jensen.

A good advice is therefore: Tell your dentist everything. Even if you can not see that the medication you take has any relevance for your dental treatment.

The importance of good communication between dentist and patient become firmly established in the Tandlægeforeningens Symposium, where Simon Storgård Jensen is among the many presenters. Tandlægeforeningens Symposium will take place on the 6.-7. november in Aarhus, denmark at the Radisson SAS Scandinavia Hotel. A little over 1,600 dentists and 600 dental assistants participating in the event, that has the medically compromised patient, as well.
