You can complain about a teeth whitening?

30. march 2010  
Filed in Complaints, Cosmetic dentistry

Question:

I have been to the dentist and have made a “teeth whitening”. Since the dentist had done it all ready and had put the light on he said that I just needed to say to if it started to hurt. After approx. 5 min with the lights on it starts to do really hurt my teeth and it freezes. Since the dentist was just slipped to the other patients and had closed the door, I could lie and cry as much as I would without the help. (as much as one can be with such a thing in the mouth). Then when there finally comes a they find out that the plastic thing that they had put in my mouth was not connected properly so gelén had come out of my lips which did rather hurt. They were going to have to remove everything and stop the bleaching. Now my teeth clearly spotted and I still have pain (aching) and I'm very sorry. I do not think that I have received a fair treatment – in addition, my teeth terrible.

What should I do – can I make a complaint?

Lower sugar levies provide lower teeth

25. march 2010  
Filed in News

It is a bomb, in particular the children's and young people's dental health, sugar levies has fallen every year since 2001. It says Tandlægeforeningens president Susanne Andersen in a comment to the new information from the ministry of finance.

– We can see that the portions have become larger over the last ten years, and it is hardly unlikely that it has anything to do with the gradual tax reductions. Slikposerne have been greater, and the same is sodavandsflaskerne. While the biggest soda bottles for ten years ago called the 1½ litre, we are now up to 2 litres. And it is a big problem for the teeth. The large bottles of deadlines, especially children and young people to have a soda standing and taking a sip of it periodically. In this way, the teeth in a constant acid bath in, and the acid in the soda can in the worst case corrode the tooth enamel away, " says Susanne Andersen.

Studies have shown that every 7. teen, to a greater or lesser extent, have acid injuries of the tooth enamel.

In addition to syreskaderne is the sugar in soft drinks and sweets are one of the major culprits when it comes to holes in the teeth. The trend has for many years been, that the danes have fewer and fewer holes in the teeth, but Susanne Andersen is afraid that the positive development will stop, if the intake of sugar continues to increase.

Should the dentist grinding on a healthy tooth?

25. march 2010  
Filed in Treatment, Teeth

Question:

I have been diagnosed with syreskade on a molar in the undermunden. That was put lacquer on as well as a plastfyldning on top of the old, because there was a hammock, ie. a large recess in the filling. When the dentist had to grind the filling, was the filling to be too high. When the opposite tooth in the mouth not filling and the dentist said that there was much enamel on the tooth, sleb she the healthy tooth to make room for the filling. Is it the correct way to do it? I think it seems wrong to grinding on a healthy tooth without a filling.
Therefore, I ask whether it is the correct approach.

Ulla

Answer:

Dear Ulla,

It must be an individual assessment, your dentist has done, it is a little difficult to answer concretely. But I would like to avoid grinding of healthy tooth to make room for a filling.

Give the lemon acid injuries to the teeth?

25. march 2010  
Filed in Teeth

Question:

Hello
Read just article about acid injuries. I drink approx. 1 liter of tea a day. Half of the aisles pushing I lemon in. It can also in the long run give the acid injuries?
I eat an orange every morning – it would be better for my teeth if I ate the melon or the like? I am 55 years old and has beautiful teeth.
Thank you in advance.

Susanne

Answer:

Dear Susanne,

The in itself does not provide acid injuries as it has a neutral PH value. When you put lemon juice in your tea, lowers you PH, which can lead to acid injuries to the teeth. However, the use of this once in a while does not give damage to the teeth. If you eat orange every morning, I would limit it and complement with a neutral fruit, as you yourself are inside, for example. melon. Furthermore, to brush your teeth after you have eaten or drunk something acidic. Ask your dentist if you have acid injuries in your teeth if you are worried.

Hope you can use my answer.

Can you remove a temporary crown?

Question:

dear Dentist

I have made crowns for my front teeth for cosmetic reasons. Since the one unfortunately is skewed and is 3 mm longer than the other, I must have made them. When I got them fitted for approx. 5 weeks ago, we agreed that they were cemented temporarily, so I could get used to them, and only correct if it was necessary.This proved to a be a good idea, as they now must change, but I'm somewhat concerned as to whether you possibly can remove them again without it going out over my own teeth sitting in it. The crown feels as though they are sitting very firmly, I feel. Maybe it's silly to worry about, but it plagues me however part. I have no idea what the dentist has used to cement with.Thank you in advance.

The nervous

Answer:

Dear nervous,

I do not think that you need to be nervous. It is impossible for me to know what your dentist has used as a temporary cement, but the crowns that are temporarily put on, is usually to get by without problems.

Hope you can use my answer.

Question:

I have had an inflammation of a tooth. It was gradually better, and now there are no symptoms. It can go by itself?

Anni

Answer:

Dear Anni,

If you've got inflammation of a tooth, can it not go into itself again. The inflammation can flare up into an acute toothache. So look to get to the dentist before it happens.

Should the anesthesia does not eliminate the pain?

25. march 2010  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

Hi..

I've been at the dentist to get drilled two holes for the first time today. I have never been drilled before, and therefore it was also the first time I was stunned.
I don't feel the anesthesia worked because I could feel pretty much everything, and it did really really hurts, got the chills and shook very much – was simply the worst I have ever tried. My question is whether you think the anesthesia worked? Is it not supposed not to be able to feel anything?

I was pretty swollen afterwards, and found it difficult to talk, at the same time I was also quite shocked, so were just home – had I not talked with my dentist about it. But think it is a little hard to pay $ 500. for stunning, when you don't feel it has worked..

Mvt. Anne Camilla.

Answer:

Dear Anne, Camilla,

If you had pain during treatment, your stunning not worked as it should. Of course, it is supposed to be a painless experience to come to the dentist. I think you should take a chat with your dentist. Sometimes nervousness have an impact on the anesthesia.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Catfish

Answer:

Dear Catfish,

You are absolutely right in what you say. Milk can provide holes in the teeth, because it contains milk sugar. No matter what type of milk we are talking about. So hold fast to your son should only have water to drink before bedtime.
