A dry mouth provides poorer quality of life

16. april 2010

Pronounced dry mouth can lead to a significantly impaired quality of life. Dry mouth can occur after cancer treatment, as side effects to the medicine as well as by certain diseases. Patients with severe dry mouth often find that the natural teeth are attacked by an aggressive form of caries, which can cause the teeth to crumble away. For the individual, the situation is deteriorating further by the use of ordinary dentures is an impossibility due. very delicate mucous membranes. Three dentists, each with its specialty focus on dry mouth at Tandlægeforeningens year course 2010

Medicated patients, patients who have been in the chemo - or radiotherapy as well as patients with Sjøgrens syndrome often suffer from pronounced dry mouth. It can be argued that they suddenly develop dental caries in so fast a pace that it can be difficult for the dentist and for the patient to follow. For the patient, the result is often not only a substantial deterioration of his or her quality of life, but also great tandlægeregninger. It is extremely important that the patient and the surroundings is aware of the fact that both during and after the difficult time with chemo - or radiotherapy is needed for a particular prevention effort, says overtandlæge, ph.d. Ole Hovgaard.

He stresses the importance of the patient maintaining an optimal oral hygiene and are aware of the choice of diet. Several devices can be put to use. Bl.a. it is recommended to use a prescription toothpaste with extra fluoride content. Finally, is it a good idea to arrange more frequent checks at the dentist, because early treatment is crucial for a good result.

The demanding treatment can simultaneously be a financial burden for the patient, but in fact there is the possibility of grants for the Danish health act. It is, however, not everyone is aware of the possibility, says overtandlæge Ole Hovgaard, who daily manage the grant scheme in the Region of Midtjylland.

We see, unfortunately, many patients who only many years after their cancer treatment becomes aware that there exists a subsidy scheme, which both deals with the study, prevention and treatment. Late intervention impair the ability to prevent major damage. Here dentists a commitment to provide better advice and guidance, mean Ole Hovgaard.

He, along with professor Flemming Isidor and dentist Allan Bardow focus on the complications of dry mouth and the possibility of grants in the Tandlægeforeningens year course, which will be held in the Bella Center in Copenhagen on 15.-17. april 2010. Year course is Denmark's largest kursusarrangement in the field of dentistry and have for years gathered over 3000 dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and others with an interest in dental health.

Advertisements for toothpaste and mouthwash shoots well over the goal

14. april 2010  
Filed in News

A clean mouth for up to 12-24 hours. This is the sound it is often in commercials for toothpaste and mouth rinses, but the claims made in the advertisements is often untrue. Therefore, many consumers around with totally unrealistic notions of what type of products can accomplish. It says leading dentist Bo Danielsen, who focus on the problem at Tandlægeforeningens was studying 2010.

A tooth brushing can not be replaced by a fancy product that promises gold and green forests. You can't make a shortcut to a healthy oral hygiene. You have to make a own effort to remember to brush his teeth thoroughly. Moreover, the fluoride in the toothpaste is the most important thing in order to avoid getting cavities in the teeth, says leading dentist, MBA, MIL Bo Danielsen from ST. petersburg, Dentistry in Aarhus. Bo Danielsen is among the presenters at the Tandlægeforeningens year course, which takes place 15.-17. april 2010 in Bella Center in Copenhagen.

Toothpaste and mundskyllevæsker can be to make brushing a little more comfortable and give a sense of purity and freshness in the mouth. But if it really were the case that these products could in itself keep the mouth clean for up to 12-24 hours, so we would dentists enough be informed about it, " says Bo Danielsen.

My advice to consumers: “Drop the high-priced products, brush your teeth thoroughly with a toothpaste containing fluoride”, emphasizes Bo Danielsen.

He put together with the dentist, ph.d. Alan Richards focus on what advice the dentists and tandplejerne can provide their patients about the use of toothpaste and mundskyllevæsker on Tandlægeforeningens was studying 2010. Year course is Denmark's largest kursusarrangement in the field of dentistry and brings together this year over 3000 dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants and others with an interest in dental health.

Genes after tooth extraction

11. april 2010  
Filed in Mouth

Question:

Hello,

I got 3 weeks ago removed the forsidste molar in the ve. side of the upper jaw, unfortunately, smoke the very last also, as well as bone mass. Got a 10 day penicillin as well as instructions not to cough, sneeze, etc. because that could go a hole in the membranet to bihulen, pga. the lack of bone mass. Stitches removed, everything ok according to. the dentist, healing well. Now 3 weeks later it is still a mega hole, logically, the pga. there is no bone is back, but I think it still can do ‘evil’ by the pronunciation of certain words/klank. Dare not to sneeze, trimming nose or cough because I can feel the pressure that then comes in is uncomfortable. The dentist had good enough said you not had the above for approx. 7 days, but how do feel if there's a hole in the membranet, bleed it, pain or? Furthermore, I think that I have at least got talegener, I really have a big part of the day trouble to speak clearly, it may be because the hole is so large or because there m
might have damaged a nerve or the like. All in all I could just like me to get to know how far can the site actually be to ‘bother’? Thank you for an evs. response.

Annet

Answer:

Dear Annet,

It is hard to say how long it will bother you. Of course it will affect your speech, when you've got removed several teeth and smoked some bone with, on top of that. There has been no nervebeskadigelse, which will affect your speech, but in and there has been more space for your tongue, so will the pronunciation be different. If you still have pain when you pronounce certain sounds, you must go to your dentist to be examined, whether there still is a hole to your sinus. It does not necessarily lead to pain if there is a hole through from the bihulen to the mouth, but the recurrent infection in the bihulen and genes by pronunciation, can be some symptoms.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Afraid to lose my teeth when the temporary crown must of

10. april 2010  
Filed in Cosmetic dentistry

Question:

Loved Ones Dentist.

I have 2 months ago got crowns on front teeth for cosmetic reasons. These are according to the dentist temporarily fixed, as I had to get used to them first. The one is lopsided and goes 3mm out over the other. This should now be made, and we have agreed to do both to fully ceramic crowns instead of the metalkeramiske as the dentist had first chosen. I am just so terribly nervous, that my own teeth become loose, when the crowns lirkes of. It seems like they sit very firm.I don't know which glue the dentist used. But my biggest nightmare is to suddenly lose my front teeth completely. Can you help with your experience in this area.

Kind regards, B

Answer:

Dear B,

There is surely no reason to be so nervous. Often the crowns sit very tightly when you have put them temporarily on. But there is no reason to your own teeth would go loose. If that were the case, then would your dentist hardly suggest this treatment.

Hope you can use my answer.

”Sweet” cultural background affects children cariesrisiko

10. april 2010  
Filed in News

If the mother and father have a short education or non-western background, the risk of caries in children is significantly larger than that of the average. It shows a new Norwegian study, published in Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology.

In the survey received 523 children made tandundersøgelse, while the parents responding to questions about the socio-economic conditions and on own tandplejevaner. In the group of parents with non-western background and education had the children, respectively, nine and twelve times more at risk for incipient caries in the enamel and tandbenet. This is due to excessive sugar intake, and lacked regular brushing.

Non-western background and education
“In the group of parents with non-western background and education had the children, respectively, nine and 12 times as likely to have incipient caries in enamel and in dentin. However, the confidence intervals for these probabilities was quite large, ie. uncertain and one should also notice that it is about 24 children out of a total of 523”, says Dorthe Holst, professor of samfundsodontologi at Oslo University, and adds:

"There is much to indicate that there is a "sweet", and not too systematic tandbørstekultur behind the numbers. Småbørnskulturen in part non-western families is different than it, which gradually came to characterize most of the nordic. We also find high cariesaktivitet among Norwegian children, but it is rather a windows - than a kulturudfordring. Fortunately, studies of the same issue, among 14-16-year-old children and young people in Oslo, have shown that the differences are blurred. A good and respectful communication with current families at risk should be able to give good results”.

One of the most frequent complications in patients in hospital intensive care units are pneumonia. Lungeinfektion in connection with respiratory therapy affects not only older people, but weakened patients of all ages.

Dentists want greater fee for no-shows

10. april 2010  
Filed in News

Some of the dentist's rates are established in the so-called tandlægeoverenskomster, to be concluded between the Tandlægeforeningen and the Danish Regions. As the negotiations between Tandlægeforeningen and Danish Regions began in February 2010, it was bl.a. with a desire from the Tandlægeforeningens page to discuss a higher udeblivelseshonorar at the agreed major treatments.

Today is the fee for no-show set for 229 kr., regardless of the scope of the agreed treatment. It considers Tandlægeforeningens negotiator, Bear Haulrig, is not reasonable.

“Udeblivelseshonoraret is perhaps reasonable in relation to the fees charged for a study, but it stands in stark contrast to the cost of a lack of earnings, if h occurs in the context of a larger planned treatment such as a root canal or a larger pa-treatment,” says Bjørn Haulrig to Tandlægebladet and continues:

“Even worse, it seems, if there is planned a large operation, where there is reserved yet more time. In addition to this, the ambience sterile is wasted – a spot, that is both time-consuming and costly,” emphasizes Bear Haulrig.

How much the maximum cost for the patients by the absence of major planned treatments have Tandlægeforeningen not yet settled on, since the scheme could also be combined in other ways, than the current model, e.g. to be dependent on the reserved time.

Although the collective bargaining with Tandlægeforeningen and Danish Regions started in February, negotiations will in all probability continue for the rest of the year. And by then, there will certainly be no change in the fee for no-show on the agreed treatments.
