Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello....
I started a root canal of a molar. By 1. Dentist visit I had great pain and much inflammation in the tooth, got cleaned and had in addition to antibiotics. There was much a temporary filling and the agreed new time after about 3 weeks. There was a little cracking the temporary filling.
2. Dentist visit showed that there was still a little inflammation back, was once again cleaned up and put new filling. Since we are so close to christmas – we agreed the first new tandlægetime 11. January. Today, there is so again come up any cracks in the filling and this worries me. There may be something about that there are cracks in the filling? Can a tooth crack? Should I contact my dentist immediately???
Thank you in advance for the help:)
Greetings Mette

Answer:

Dear Mette,

You can be quite calm. The temporary fillings dentists use, is not as strong as the permanent fillings. Typically, it can also break off small pieces of the outside that it means something.

Hope you can use my answer.

Sting after the removal of the visdomstand

2. may 2012  
Filed in Mouth

Question:

Hello

I have 14 days time ago been up and have removed my visdomstand in undermunden. Here said my tandlaege that the stitches would disappear by itself. I have least in other places, that it is normal to have them removed within a week, since traaden else can get to grow together with the meat.
Now I'm starting to become a bit concerned, since my stitches have not yet disappeared and there is formed white splotches on. It is completely normal, should I have them removed as soon as possible, or should I just wait for the stitches to disappear?

Answer:

Dear Tine,

You need to consult the dentist. There are otherwise several kind of thread you use to sew with, some of them can indeed disappear by themselves, where others require that the dentist remove them.

Hope you can use my answer.

Answer:

Dear Torstein,

It is very common to plastic fillings symptoms. In some cases there may be symptoms for up to several months and in some cases disappear the symptoms never. I think you should go to your dentist to see if your sammenbid is in order. If a filling or more is too high, they can cause similar symptoms.

Hope you can use my answer.

Hole after removed visdomstand

1. may 2012  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello.
It is now 9 days since I've had surgery a lower visdomstand out, and got rid of the stitches, as planned, for a couple of days ago. But have now looked at the wound in there and have noticed that there is a gap in there, where the tooth has been, it is not supposed that it should have been covered, so dirt can't collect down in the wound? Or everything seems to be as it should?
Mvt. Karina

Answer:

Dear Karina,

The hole will eventually disappear, it takes some months before it again is filled up with tissues. So you need not worry. Make sure only to not put out food and div. check in the hole. If you get some symptoms of inflammation, so look right past your dentist to get it checked.

Hope you can use my answer.

Swollen gums

1. may 2012  
Filed in Treatment

Question:

Hello
I have a boy of 13 years where his gums are swollen.
He has no evil in it but synsmæssigt it doesn't look pretty.
He has had it for many years and we have always been told of dentistry, that it will disappear if we push the (forsigttigt) on it. But nothing has helped.
What can we do to remedy it

Answer:

Dear Jan,

If the gums are raised in general, it is typically a sign of gingivitis. This is due to a lack of oral hygiene. I suspect that the dentist has recommended to you is that you should brush your teeth better and incl. the gums.

If your son improves his oral hygiene, should the problem disappear by itself.

Hope you can use my answer.

If your daughter has so big problems and have much to be directed at. Is she in a completely different situation than her classmates.

There is a difference when you go in and fix teeth. If she has big deviations, it is a major treatment and require that it involves her growth. But I think you should ask her dentist if you are in doubt.

Pain again, again

1. may 2012  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

My 5’is in the left-hand sides undermund hurts. I have had problems with dental pain in the for several years. It is rodbehandlet, but still pain. Drilled out again. Still feel pain. Penicillin, Primcillin several times and Metronidasol 1X. Last roddehandl.for almost 3 years ago, where I was given penicillin several times. The dentist said that if the inflammation was not completely gone, it would spread to the weakest tooth.It came 2 weeks later, where visdomstanden the same side was violently inflamed and had to be removed.Since the pain has come and gone, often quite violent, so it feels up in the above tooth and almost spreads in the cheek.The tooth is brushed in the dental neck, as it at the same time is very sensitive to cold.The tooth is of course x-rayed several times, without my dentist can see anything. The hygienist has talked about a fistula, which komemr and go, but even at a rodspidsoperation believe she does not, you can be sure, the pain subsides.
18 years ago I was out for an accident, and it turned out somewhere along the way, that was on fine cracks in several molars, which are either rodbehandlede or removed.I get 10 mg.Amitriptyline dgl.for nerve pain, as I feel around in the head after hjerneraumet.

Sincerely, Swiften

Answer:

Dear Swiften,

If there is something with a fistula that comes and goes, it should be treated regardless of whether there is doubt as to whether the pain subsides or not. Me aware can the inflammation from the one tooth not attack some other weak teeth. So your 5er and visdomstand are two different things.

Hope you can use my answer.

Answer:

Dear Lone,

It may have been the patient complaints board, you have heard about on the radio. The patient complaints board acts as one single entrance for patients who want to complain about the professional treatment in the entire Danish health care system. Patientombuddets website you will find here

But Danish Tandlægeforening has also created a website, which should make it easier for patients to complain about the dentist, seek compensation m.v.
Tandlægeforeningens website Tandklage.dk you can read more about here
