Filed in Education

Question:

My boy would like to read dentist but has a very low average in his grades up to 6 . He has the ability to read the tandplej and later were admitted at the dental studio either along the way or after he is finished as a tandplej. He just want to only read the dentist :-)
Hope for a good advice. If he gets tandplej , how much tjner the as basic salary from the start ?

Answer:

Dear User,

With so low grades can only be talking about recording via quota 2, since admission to dental education via quota 1 places very high demands on one's grade point average. Quota 2 you can read more about here: Quota 2

You can also read more about both the dentist and the dental hygienist education, job opportunities m.m. on www.ug.dk

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Com bill not too fast?

16. June 2012  
Filed in Grants and the Economy

Question:

hi dentists, I have been tasked by my parents to find out a long time from the bill comes to paying, the episode was following my papfar had to be to the dentist, and the used 3000,- with a treatment that was not completely finished, so you could say it was a mellembetaling, for the first part.
here the other day we saw the bill at the letter, and that we had then 3 days to pay so quickly we could not obtain 3000,- so wondered we if you do not have 14 days to pay in, from the time we receive the letter for it to be paid??? or what does the law say???

Answer:

Dear Lasse,

It seems that I have been made a kind of payment schedule with your dentist, and the agreement has In so of course have a duty to comply with.

As a general rule, you have to pay for a service when you receive this. You do not have any right to get something done on credit, and the dentist may even require advance payment or a bank guarantee, for the services you purchase from the dentist.

Has entered into an agreement with your dentist, where In ex. get bill home, or sent to, has the right to a reasonable deadline, so that you can reach in the bank or at the post office before the deadline. So the 3 days can be enough to be considered a reasonable period of time.

Most dentists have electronic medical record and bookkeeping systems, and in these systems indicates typically some standard values for payment m.m. So I wonder if your dentist would be willing to wait a few weeks on the payment, if In calling the dentist and honestly explains the situation. It would, I think, was worth a try. Personally, I have never said no to an honest inquiry of some weeks of further credit.

You can also read more about your rights.m.m. in the consumer ombudsman's website: Bills and payment deadlines

Hope you can use my answer.

Should I go through a second kæbeoperation?

2. may 2012  
Filed in Jaws and Joints

Question:

Dear doctor
I am a girl of almost 19 years, and has been under treatment in ca. 3 years now with specialtandlægerne in tooth-,mouth-and the department at Rigshospitalet in copenhagen. Before I was sent to the university hospital, I had an undershot mouth that I inherited from my father, and my teeth were very crooked. My upper was also very narrow. I was told by dentists that my teeth can only be corrected with an operation, and later with the braces. The operation should help to get more space for the teeth at the top. I made the operation and is now really happy with the result. I've got straight teeth, both the top and bottom, and I no longer undershot. But another problem has cropped up, and that is that my upper is a little bit skewed(almost can not be seen), ie. it's been a little over towards the right side. So it can be corrected with another surgery, but I said no to make the operation, because what's important was for me to get the straight teeth and not on my jaws is exactly right on top of each other. The dentist then said that if I had made the second operation, I will with the days might get undershot again, because the teeth at the top has nothing to hold onto(hope this is understandable).Is this true, will I really get the undershot again? I really need tandlægernes help here, because I do not want to go through another operation. Hope you will answer me, and thank you in advance.

Answer:

Dear Sara,

I think you should follow specialist advice. It is them who has you under consideration.

Hope you can use my answer.

Violent pain

2. may 2012  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

I started a week ago to get the indescribable violent pain in my tooth, where it after some days felt as if all the teeth in the same side did hurt very much. I was at the dentist's today and was diagnosed with a hole, which had gone down to the nerve, which was causing the extreme pain. I have now got it made, but now the pain after the anesthesia come back again, now they are just twice as bad. It must be said that I have pain around the clock and I am not sleeping at night, because the pain is so extreme. I've got some Ibumetin(400mg) and alm. notebook which tilsydladende only works a very small percentage. I have held myself to these all week, but now my limit is gone. It may not fit, I have to go and be so sore all the time. So my few questions are:

After what I have come to find through google.dk, so can a hole down to the nerve cause inflammation, which is causing the extreme pain. So I am thinking.. If this is the case, then I should surely be able to get prescription on something which is a lot more effective than these, as I now get?

And can I do something to prevent than later root canal treatment?

I hope to get a response otherwise
thank you in advance.

Sincerely, Anne

Answer:

Your tooth must rodbehandles if you have so many pains in so long. It will help in the pain to get the rodbehandlet. It is not necessary with penicillin if you have inflammation in a tooth.

Overbid

2. may 2012  
Filed in Cosmetic dentistry

Question:

Hello! I am a girl of 30 years who have overbid. I got nakketræk when I was in primary school, but was not good to use it and therefore stopped the treatment which I regret today. I would like to have fixed my front teeth. They stick too much out. But unfortunately I'm not interested in getting the railway tracks, but would very much like to have nakketræk so I can be treated on the night. This is an option once you become an adult? Or are there other options?

Answer:

Dear Camilla,

You need to consult a ortodontist who can guide you.

Large incisors

2. may 2012  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello.

I have a long time been really upset about my front teeth which stick out and are large in relation to the rest of the teeth in my mouth.
I could well imagine what a recommended treatment will be. Have read about implantanter and/or porcelain crowns.

Which one of the two would be the best option for me and there are even dentists who will pull the 2 healthy teeth and put in implants when it comes to one's well being?

Thank you in advance.

Answer:

Dear user,

It is impossible to advise you without having seen you in the mouth. No I don't think there are dentists who will pull healthy teeth out to put the implants in. You must seek out your own dentist to learn your options to treat your problem.

Hope you can use my answer.

2 year old, and the hole in the teeth??

2. may 2012  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello.....
Sitting here with the worst feeling ever... the Feeling of, to be the worst mother!!!
My daughter, 2 years old, has had “teething problems” with regards to teeth brushing... It was with the “abuse” that I had brushed her teeth. But the last few years there is progress, as long as she is a part of it, and looking in the mirror... And ends ALWAYS with yourself, to brush her teeth... But for a small månedes ago, I saw that she had something black between her bottom teeth... Thought it was something the spice of a kind, which was stuck... But after repeated attempts, to get it away, it will not go away... I have tried dental floss, toothpick, but it will be there.... Unfortunately.... Is it mon holes my daughter has? And how are gaps in young children.... Is really destroyed over that I may have to postpone my little girl for such a place, just because her mother is an ass..... Hope you will reply my mail....
Hugs from Marlene

Answer:

Dear Marlene,

I can well understand your frustration. I think you should get a børnetandlæge or dental hygienist to look at your daughter's teeth if you are so worried. It do not necessarily have to be a hole in the tooth even if there is no black on the tooth. It may be any discoloration or arrested caries.

Hope you can use my answer.

It is not the dentist's responsibility?

2. may 2012  
Filed in Teeth

Question:

Got the 5/10 -2011 put a crown on a broken molar in the mouth, without rodbh. Now 2 months after I have hurt and can't chew, eat or drink cold/hot.
Been at the dentist that has taken the rgt, nothing to see, nor inflammation, but was a precaution set in vipicombin bh 600mg. This has not helped. My question is now, should the dentist does not have rodbh from the start??
It is not the dentist's responsibility to get the tooth rodbh, without more cost to the undersigned???

Answer:

Dear Irene,

It is impossible to predict how your tooth will respond to kronebehandling. Usually they say that every 10 tooth that gets a crown on must rodbehandles subsequent. So it is not normal practice to rodbehandle teeth before you put the crown on. It is something else if you have had symptoms within kronebehandlingen to you possibly. do it within.

Hope you can use my answer.

Problem with the 6 year tooth

2. may 2012  
Filed in Teeth

Question:

I've just been to the dentist and he found, unfortunately, yet again, the hole in a 6 year tooth. This is the fourth time there is a hole in this tooth, so eventually the right destroyed. It's only been 2 years since I last got the drill out and made a big plastfyldning in, but now there is a hole by the side of this. I had, unfortunately, also a few other things that had to be done today, so I didn't made this tooth. Therefore, I am now and contemplating what to do with the tooth. The dentist mentioned root canal and a crown, but I think already I have sacrificed a lot of money on the tooth and am considering to get pulled the tooth out instead. You can well do without the tooth, or it will be a great loss? I already have all my teeth so it would be only the one tooth I am going to be missing. Can you give me an advice?

Answer:

Dear Flemming,

I would under no circumstances pull a healthy tooth out. If it can be preserved, so I would definitely do it.

Hope you can use my answer.

Concern ang. treatment of gingivitis

2. may 2012  
Filed in Treatment

Question:

Hi,

I am a girl of 17 (soon 18) years of age living in Aalborg.
Recently told my dentist to me that I have gingivitis. Therefore, I've got a soft brush, flossing and the order to rinse the mouth 2 times daily in khlorhexidin in 14 days. I do all the above things, and have made it in 5 days. But my problem is that I think my gums look very irritated, it bleeds and a sore. In some places, particularly around the hjørnetønderne, it seems to be particularly bad. It is as if the gums in some places seems to have been “torn up” almost like an abrasion. It looks “raw”. I think it looks like my gums in some places have pulled back more, so more of the tooth is exposed. It is not particularly sore, besides when I brushes it, and it bleeds not so much as it has done.
But I'm pretty concerned about whether I am doing something wrong. I'm not trying to brush, neither too hard or too soft. My concern is maybe a little bit unfounded, but I think a lot of it, and hope, therefore, that there is someone who can help me.

– Lin

Answer:

Dear Lin,

It sounds like your dentist is proven about your problems. If you are in doubt, then get him/her to look at you again.

Hope you can use my answer.
