Question:

You know that stress can cause bad teeth. There exist studies that demonstrate the relationship the other way around – that one or more bad ( infected ) tooth/teeth can be the cause of stressymptomer in the form of dizziness, visual disturbances, and difficulty concentrating.

Gitte

Answer:

Dear Gitte,

Interesting question, know not, however, something to the studies you mention, or studies that would demonstrate the existence of a relationship the other way around. However, infections around the teeth can affect one's almenbefindende.

Hope you can use my answer.

Filed in Treatment, Complaints

Question:

My mother-in-law got about 3 years ago made the snap fasteners in its tandprotese of a dentist. in order to solve the problem with a loose prosthesis. The problem was that the gummen were disappearing(my mother-in-law is 82 years of age) the Work was made for a price of 30000 kr. She has since had the snap locks on the switch twice, which she had not been informed about. However, there are now done it to the prosthesis is broken between the two snap fasteners. It was reparetet two weeks ago(for the 900). and is now broken again. The question is whether a prosthesis such without further should be able to break and the treating dentist should be informed about the risk of it, and is there a warranty on the original work. My mother-in-law got to know that there was a lifetime warranty on the work performed to 30000. What can we do to help her?

Steen

Answer:

Dear Steen,

It suggests communication deficits in your case. As a starting point, there is no guarantee on dental work, but you always have the option to lodge a complaint.

Regarding prosthesis, it is too specific to comment on, since you have to see the patient and give a professional assessment from it.

Hope you can use my answer.

Should I opt for root canal treatment?

13. January 2010  
Filed in Treatment, Pain and Anaesthesia, Teeth

Question:

I am faced with, I think though, a big problem. Go out and travel a half-year on 5 January and since it is christmas ovs, I have not much time to see an. I got in november removed a temporary filling which I had and a half years. Got the temporary filling because I had a big hole where there was a piece of sølvfyldningen that was broken. Have no symptoms had in the half year I had the temporary filling. When I saw in november gets removed it and put plastic I begin to get symptoms. Already inside at the dentist's, I noticed as she polishes the tooth there is a small area that hurts when touched. This area has bothered me a little bit ago. My dentist thinks it is because the filling was too high and therefore sanded the tooth 2 times. After the grinding has it's place, however, been even more tenderly and responded to cold and when I scrunch with a fingernail. Especially when I'm out in the cold winter air I get many pain through the tooth. The days where I have been very out are the extra delicate and may react to hot. There may also be days where I don't think that the tooth is delicate ex the days where I am mainly at home. I think even the case of to the nerve is too close to the filling, and therefore are very delicate. My concern is that I don't know whether I should rodbehandle it? The best would probably be to let the time go, but it is a little difficult since I will soon travel to asia for half a year. Can live with my pain now, but I need to know that the pain does not become worse and that there is no risk of inflammation. Must finally be said that I am 25 years old, have never before been rodbehandlet. What should I do?

Sincerely, Laura

Answer:

Dear Laura,

It you must let your dentist assess for you whether the tooth should rodbehandles or not. It is a bad sign that the tooth reacts to heat and that you have pain in the. Evidence to suggest that it ends with a root canal. If your dentist determines that it is best to wait and see, it is probably true in your case.

Hope you can use my answer.
