The elderly do not know to hjemmetandpleje scheme

18. december 2009  
Filed in News

Hjemmetandplejen is on offer to older people and difficult people with limited mobility, who find it difficult even to give dentistry a visit. However, several hundred elderly in the municipality of Aalborg, miss out on the offer of dental care in the home, because they do not know to the scheme, writes tv2/nord.

Equipped with a small tandlægekuffert can dentist resolve most tasks in the home, which protects the elderly and severely disabled patients for a troublesome trip out of the home. But according to Aalborg Municipality's dentistry, there are a few that make use of the possibility to get the dentist to give your teeth a check out in their own home.

“We suspect that we could have almost twice as many users in the system, if any, as is justified, took the offer,” says dentist Birgit Krabsen from dental care in Aalborg municipality.

Care centers can also avail of the scheme, so that staff at the plejecentrene can concentrate on providing care and support, instead of having to set aside time to accompany the residents one by one to the dentist.

Question:

I have just been rodspidsamputeret a molar. I have been very irritated from næserodene and go to the wound. Slightly raised and thumps in the næsefløj. I then started to raise around the tooth, and there was found inflammation. My gums from the tooth and up into the roof of the mouth is very irritated. After finishing pondocillin and metronidazole treatment is both the nose and palate, still very annoyed. It makes so little evil in the tooth when I chew and it will be taken out. There is a crack in the tooth. So it had to get out. Is now six hours, very irritated in the gums from the now-missing tooth and up into the palate and nose dunking much, right down to the mandible. The teeth under the wound has been irritated/sore for a while all of this Is because of the bad tooth el is there something else wrong also up at the nose? It started after the operation – that is, amputationen.

Answer:

Dear Jeanne,

It suggests it is because of. the tooth and the operation. You must go to the dentist again if it continues to bother you.

You are not allowed to drink coffee in 4 days after the operation?

Question:

Is it really that you are not allowed to drink coffee and black tea in 4 days after visdomstand was removed?

ira

Answer:

Dear Ira,

It is not something I know. Only in two days after surgery, one must keep themselves from all that is hot, both food and drink. The heat causes the your blood vessels to expand, which provides increased risk that the wound starts to bleed again. Also one must keep calm after an operation, not to start a bleeding.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Patientforsikring convicted for speech about drug

4. december 2009  
Filed in News

Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring has today been ordered to pay CMS Dental € 2.5 million. kr. in damages.

Judgment in a case concerning an article in the Tandlægebladet from 2005. In the article advised the president of the Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring dentists to be careful when they used the 4 % articaïne for anesthesia in the lower jaw.

The judgment clarifies, not whether there is greater risk by using the articaïne than by using other anesthetics for anaesthesia in the mandible.

Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring take the judgment into account.

The president of the Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring, dentist Jahn Legarth, said:

– When I was invited to write the article to Tandlægebladet, there were previously been written in the magazine about the articaïne. Lægemiddelforsikringen was oriented and thus there was also passed information to the Danish medicines agency, which has responsibility for the safety of medicines. I don't know what I would have done, if I in advance had known that the article would lead to a lawsuit, which has had high personal costs for me.

Tandlægeforeningens president Susanne Andersen says:

The judgment contains some scary prospects. It will be important for us, for the medical associations and other health organizations. We are concerned that the high court's judgment will be perceived as a restriction of freedom of expression in the medical debate on the possible adverse effects of medicines. The judgment does not change that it is the individual dentist's duty to advise his patients in the best way possible and to report side effects to the Danish medicines agency.

Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring has not yet taken a position on whether the judgment should be appealed.

Tandlægeforeningen and Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring have no further comments on the judgment.
