Among the Norwegian government's election promises was that it would extend the subsidy to voksenbefolkningens dentistry.

It must partly be done by making the examinations free of charge for people over 75 years of age, and may impose a ceiling for an upper user fees on an annual dkk 3,000., after which the public provides completely or partially the grant for other expenses. The amount is dkk 3,000. provided that 80 % of the patients have an annual cost to the dental care of up to dkk 3,000.

In order to ensure a geographically better tandlægedækning considering the government to introduce a scheme, which means that the general practitioner dentists receive a fixed amount per. registered patient equivalent to what applies for the general practitioners.

Grants to voksentandpleje in Norway is today defined as særomsorg, as the grant does not include the entire population, but only being given to the dental treatment as a result of, among other things, rare medical disease, lip-jaw-palate - cleft and dental injuries in connection with the accident.

So far the plans only on the drawing board, but the government has as a general objective, that the state gradually assume greater responsibility for the population's oral health.

Kind regards Tina

Answer:

Dear Tina,

Your situation doesn't sound particularly nice. Dentists know well to Cluster headache, and it has on occasions given rise to tooth extraction, where it is misdiagnosed as a toothache. This is typically the teeth in overkæbens sideregion, the same side as the headache occurs. Some patients with the horton's, get the pure oxygen in the bottle to help the pain.

I think you need to consult your own dentist. Evs. even turn on one of the two ' dental schools in the country.

Dentistry in Aarhus, denmark
Dentistry in Copenhagen

Can a dentist here right up on it? Poland is excluded.

Mona

You will as a rule be always be welcomed by a Danish dentist, even if you have got the extensive treatment abroad. But Danish dentists, however, has the right to reject you, unless you have pain or other acute need for treatment. You can also expect that the Danish dentist will ensure the documentation for the evs. error and harm from treatment abroad.

No-shows increases the risk of caries in children

No-shows from tandlægeaftaler, dental phobia, as well as parents who are avoiding dental treatment, are risk factors for the development of caries in children, shows a new Swedish study. The survey includes more than 500 children and their parents.

The Swedish authors conclude that children, who have a history of no-shows, and who have parents who fail when it comes to complying with the children's tandlægeaftaler – they have an elevated risk of having developed dental caries as a five-year-old.
