14. august 2010  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia, Teeth

Question:

I have lost a crown, went to the dentist, who could tell me, that it could not be put in again when there was Karius in the tooth, also said that there was rodebehandlet,which I believe it is(it is a number of years ago). Pga. disease partly at the dentist and me, I have now gone with the “open” root in about a month, where it has been featured alm. dining, without I have felt any kind of discomfort/pain, my question is: can it be done with an untreated root?

Kind regards

Vibeke

Answer:

Dear Vibeke,

Yes, it can. The nerve in a tooth can go and die without you notice it or gets toothache. So if your tooth is not already rodbehandlet, then you have probably not be able to notice something because it is dead.

Hope you can use my answer.

Answer:

Dear Tommy,

There is no guarantee the treatment. If you think it is unfair or considers the treatment is not good enough, there is the opportunity to complain. In my opinion, is the offer you have received from your dentist is reasonable, as he is not obliged to give a reduction in price.

What do I claim on the ifm. with a bad bridge?

12. august 2010  
Filed in Complaints

Question:

For two and a half years ago I had replaced a 4-membered bridge in the middle of the mouth. Shortly after, it turned out that the outermost tooth to the left had a crack in the porcelain on the cross in the middle of the tooth. The dentist now has two times reparet the crack with a plastfyldning. I have asked if there is an insurance policy that covers something and he says yes, but there is not really anything in the matter, I am pleased with my dentist and he hasn't even made the bridge. I have also asked him whether he had turned to those who have made the bridge, but that he had forgotten.

I would now like to know, what have I really claim in this context, and how should I behave.

In addition to that it is annoying to have made repairs, then you can also see it, and there is no natural teeth that are chipped, cracked and repaired across.

I would also like to keep the bridge so far, but must see in the eyes, that you cannot get by grinding on a thin porcelænstand, each time it needs to be repaired, then the bridge holds so not as long as otherwise.

Help me please with a reply, so I know how I should behave, before I talk with my dentist again. I'm a little tired of his stalling the answer.

Helene

Answer:

Dear Helene,

It is impossible for me to say anything about the warranty terms of the supplier your dentist have used. I think you should urgently find a solution with your own dentist. It does not prove to be possible to find a solution with your dentist, you always have the option to complain about your dentist or the treatment you have received.

You can read more about how to complain about a dentist or treatment here

Pr. 1. January 2011 will enter a new complaints system will be established in the force. But it deals primarily with the public employees dentists and not private practice dentists, who will continue with the old complaints system.

Hope you can use my answer.

Can rodbetændelse be the cause of the palpitations.m.m.

11. august 2010  
Filed in Treatment

Question:

Can rodbetændelser (residues after already rodbehandlet teeth)cause bodily unrest, heart palpitations, mm, I can't find an external cause on the + to ledinflamation after sportskader will not all? On røgentbillederne is that ifl. my dentist is very little inflammation to see, so he does not believe it can have meaning, when I don't have major pain. I feel daily a murmur and a keg. I've got a feeling it may hang together, since I generally heal fine and are in fine fórm. I'm thinking that I must have pulled them out, which of course is a big decision on the sensations... It has been going on for at least half a year.

M. v. h.

Annelise

Answer:

Dear Annelise,

No I don't believe it. But it is not healthy to walk around with a chronic inflammation. But a half year is very short time to take such a drastic decision to get several teeth pulled out. I think you should work with your dentist to take a decision and evs. only observe these teeth for at least 1 year more.

Hope you can use my answer.

Is it skoletandplejen who has the responsibility?

10. august 2010  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello.
My daughter of 18 has just been at her new dentist (after skoletandplejen) and diagnosed with 8 holes, the 4 are serious. The gums are also problems with. The dentist said to her that he does not understand that skoletandplejen not have done or said something, when she was there last. WHAT CAN WE DO? HOW CAN WE DETERMINE WHETHER THERE REALLY ARE 8 HOLES?? IS it skoletandplejen not to have done its work well enough – or is it the other dentist, there are errors on the! WHAT DO WE DO??

looking forward to your reply.

Else

Answer:

Dear Else,

It is difficult to comment on your question without even having seen the photographs and journal by the school dentist, and now with the new dentist. 8 holes sounds very violently. Talk with the new dentist to get the requested medical record and x-rays of the skoletandplejen, then you can look at it together.

Hope you can use my answer.

I had a hole that had to be made. As I usually do, I got stunning. After about an hour I became dizzy and got nausea, it may be due to the anesthesia? Is it possible to get other anesthetics? I still have a lame area where the anesthesia was put in (it is 3 days ago) is this normal?

Question:

Dear Dentist

I have been successful membranoperationer on 2 teeth. I am very careful to keep my teeth clean, and paradentosen is also in abeyance, but unfortunately tandhalsene on the mentioned teeth has become really ugly. They look quite dark in the interval and I can feel that the dental neck is very rough. You can dress up a bit at the cosmetic with plastic or something else? I'm quite bothered by it, since it is visible when I smile very much.

kind regards Asta

Talk to your dentist about it. It is possible to build plastic on the tandhalsene so they do not look so dark

Correlation between craving for sweets and alcoholism

4. august 2010  
Filed in News

In the following a new u.s. study, there may very well be the link between alcoholism in a child's family, and the child's own perception of depression, and the baby's cravings for sweets and other sweets. It shows just published research in the journal Addiction.

The american researchers examined the sweetness of the preference in children with genetic predisposition for alcoholism, and came to alcohol and the sweet taste manages to activate many of the same “belønningskredsløb” in the brain. The study also included children with depressive symptoms, to see if they had the same “belønningskredsløb” with sweets.

In the study attended 300 children between 5 and 12 years and their mothers. The children were allowed to taste five concentrations of sucrose (sugar) in water, while the researchers, from a questionnaire, rated the children's evs. depressive states. It was also noted the concentration of sukkervand individual children like best. Mothers ' participation in the study was to answer the questions about alcoholism in the family.

The most intense sweetness, of the five different variants sukkervand, consisted of 24 % sucrose, which corresponds to approx. 14 teaspoon. sugar in a cup of water. The result showed that out of the 300 children who participated in the survey, there were 37 children that seemed best on the most intense sweetness. It turned out that these 37 children had both alcoholism in the family and their own symptoms of depression. The intensity of the cutest mix was one-third sweeter than the other children in the study preferred.

The researchers uderstreger, however, that a preference for sweet as a child does not necessarily mean an increased risk of alcoholism later in life, writes Tandlægebladet.

Rubs a rodspidsbetændelse?

4. august 2010  
Filed in Mouth

Question:

I have been going around in ca. 1 year with a sore rodbehandlet tooth (5+ left side overmund) with crown.

So since the 1. February 2010 had violent toothache in the 7+ (left side overmund) + jaw. Long rush (no keg), reaction to cold and touch of the tooth and also something smelly from the gums. The tooth has not filling.

At the same time starting 5+ to send something smelly from the gums in the mouth, when I put the tongue up and suck and at the same time.

I have been on the penicillin cure, got scanned my sinuses, but there is nothing to see – neither rodbetændelser.

The pain/the long-lasting rush is, however, slowed since the penicillin cure, but I can not chew with the 5+ and 7+, and it is sore. The gums are bothered and the smell is sour and fishy.

Must, as soon as have a rodresektion of 5+, even though nothing can be seen on x-ray, but my question is: Can the 1 years with a rodspidsbetændelse in the 5+, have spread to rodspidsen of 7+ via a jaw - or kæbehulebetændelse and as a result of rodspidsbetændelse in 5+?
