Baby teeth

Filed in Children

Question:

Hi
our daughter at 7 1/2, has only lost 2 baby teeth at the bottom of the mouth – is this normal?? There are no new teeth to look, at the top or behind her baby teeth and no rokketænder... Thought that you, as a 8 year old had most of his adult teeth?
She was late to get his baby teeth...
we need to do something or just wait?
Thank you in advance
christina

Answer:

Dear Christina

It is very normal that there is a difference in when children get their permanent teeth. It is typically only when you are 12 years that you have most of your adult teeth, but of course there is a difference in the children.

Hope you can use my answer.

the implant sits a little loosely

19. september 2011  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

For 3 weeks also I've got an implant in my gum. The gums
looks nice, but I'm starting to feel that it can move a little
if I push it with my tongue. It's not much, but I'm
concerned. Does it fall out?

Answer:

Dear Jurgita

It is not a good sign, if it is the implant moving. The implant is being screwed into your bone, which makes it not be able to move. I think you should go to your dentist as soon as possible.

Hope you can use my answer.

Removed visdomstand, but no stitches?

19. september 2011  
Filed in Treatment

Question:

Hello Dentist Letterbox
I got operated on a visdomstand out today, who lay almost horizontally in the jaw in the right side. I have not particularly hurt, I can chew and talk without problems, but is very sore up under the jaw, also when I turn the head. It is well, what you can expect after an intervention, but I have read others ' feature, and it seems as if they have all been stitched? I'm not – it bleeds part, if I sneeze or tensing my abdominal muscles and there is a huge black hole down the right side of my undermund. It is necessary to be stitched after such an operation is a little nervous with regard to the intake of, for example, cola, as I have a close relationship with (I'm familiar with acid injuries, so it is not a part of my question), but are there any types of food or drinks that do not come in the open crater?

Sincerely Cæcilia

Answer:

Dear Cæcilia

It is very common that you will be stitched after an operation. But your dentist has the well rated to the evs. was not necessary in your case. You should seek out the dentist again if you are uneasy. But you must like to drink Coke :)

Grants for a ceramic hanger

19. september 2011  
Filed in Grants and the Economy

Question:

Hello Dentist!

I am a young guy of 17 years who is going to get fixed my smile and my jaws. Right now I'm sitting with a sign palate with ganebøjle as expanding my upper jaw. Then I must have put rail, and fixed my teeth. Since I am still under 18, this is all paid for by the municipality.

Now I sit then on my second year of high school, and I would be much more happy a little more discreet underwire. My dentist offers shown enough of a “female” togskinne. Now is my question then; Is it something I can get, as 17. year at the municipality's expense? Or must one to pull the wallet out?

My cousin in the UNITED states also has the rail, but he has normal railway tracks at the bottom and at the top he has a togskinne made of ceramic. These ceramic rail is something you can get done in Denmark? And if you can, is it then again on the municipality or at its expense?

Thanks in advance

Sean

Answer:

Dear Sean

I think you need to consult your dentist. I can't say anything about what options they can offer you. The rail you speak of is called Invins Align.

child 5 years

Filed in Children

Question:

My grandson 5 years old has a few holes in the teeth, but may not like to get the mask on so he can get nitrous oxide. He sits nicely up in the chair but when the mask is approaching he becomes very upset. Why can't they give him something soothing before he must have the mask on ?? I have heard other dentists do. Dentists talk about hypnosis ??? What can you do so the boy no get total fear of dentists. ??

Answer:

Dear Susanne

There are many options to treat a child who is afraid. There are also several opportunities to give the child something calming before dental treatment. The cases are completely impossible to treat in the dentist's chair, can be referred to dental treatment in general anesthesia, but there is a lot to for this to happen. I think you should take a talk with the dentists who treat your grandchild to hear what options they have and why they possibly. do not make use of them.

Hope you can use my answer.

Dental crown and warranty

19. september 2011  
Filed in Complaints

At the Dental inspection on 24 august 2011, there was found inflammation of the tandroden and bone loss in the leg. The tooth was removed the 30. august ( price kr. 1000). The price for the installation of a bridge will be on the kr. 14000. It is the same clinic who performed the kronebehandlingen and extraction of the tooth. There is just the problem, that the clinic has changed ownership the 1. may 2011. Follows the warranty on the work performed with from owner to owner. Or you can just wash your hands and pass. How and who to complain to. Is there the possibility of damages.

With kind regards
Bente

Answer:

Dear Bente

I must be you answer guilty. But I don't mean to 14.000 dollars is unreasonable for a bridge. Try to talk but your new dentist if you have the opportunity to get any reduction in price due to the. the problems you have had in the same region.

Usually there is no warranty on dental treatment.

Your new dentist should be able to inform you of your rights, which you can also read more about it here: Patientombuddet

pain/inflammation after tooth extraction

19. september 2011  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

I hope you can help me to an explanation of the following:

I have a plastfyldning in the right undermund(molar) multiple times is built up because of the tooth was well worn and not much left.
but so it happens that breaks something again and goes enough with it for long, for I suddenly get pain in the tooth and the pulling up of the neck and the ear.
going to the dentist, where there is a røgten image that does not show inflammation, and the hole will be made again with the plastic,which is quite a big tooth.
after 2 days it is absolutely crazy with the pain..get penicillin a Tuesday and Friday I must again to the dentist... where it is either root canal treatment or tooth extraction...I choose the latter due to the worn tooth m.m
the dentist will get the tooth out the whole look so a hole in the middle of the tooth, which he says goes down to the nerve
there is then inflammation in the roots and the jaw ?? and would a root canal been better??or what will it say???

however, despite the extraction...do I still get some terrible pain and may soon not be in some places, eating a lot of pain every day.
is fat under the jaw and feel like the glands are swollen and the nasty pains running up along the halssiden to the ear and at the back of the head and the temple.
come again to the dentist and he looks after if there is koagler of the blood of the tooth, but it's not there...but talk about a ensym and the bones ...didn't understand this completely..is that the bone pieces to fix?? got put gauze with clove oil down...did not think it takes the pain enough??? and he spoke about maybe having to every day??
he explained that there would grow some of the bone before would the pain not keep up...
but can you explain me a little more about it last??? went so fast so I could not follow completely with this..
thought you just went to the dentist and got a tooth out, and then it was over ;-( never had such problems before??

is it because I have gone too long with the hole or the tooth's wear and tear?? (I am 55 years old)

forgot just the dentist said that approximately 1 out of 10 got those genes??

mvh Mia
looking forward to your reply �

Answer:

Dear Mia

You call it “dry alveole” or “alveolitis sicca dolorosa” which is it that gives you so many genes now. It very rarely happens. When pulling a tooth out, is there a blodkoagle where the tooth sat. Here grows with time, the blood vessels in and subsequently is completely filled up with bone and mucous membrane again. It rarely happens that it to this blodkoagel lost. When this happens, the bone bar, and this gives so many pain because to out through the bone sitting there a lot of nerve endings that are very sensitive. The dentist can remedy these pains by adding eugenol down in this empty alveole (here where the tooth has been). Forålet with this is to “burn” the nerve endings over, which relieves the symptoms slightly. It also helps to rinse well in the alveoli. Your symptoms should be subsiding and you can get the prescription of some stronger painkillers that your dentist.

Good recovery.

Transparent hanger

19. september 2011  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hi,
I am a girl of 18 years, must have a hanger on within the next month. It is not something I am looking forward to, but it is a part of a treatment that bl.a. also includes a jaw operation.
I have searched a bit online, I have seen that it is possible to get a hanger that is more “transparent”, and going more in the one with the teeth.
My whole treatment will be paid by the state, as it was set in the time when I was under 18, but they would wait with the treatment, they thought my lower jaw was fully developed.
Now is my question, then, is whether there could be chances of the state also will pay for the “transparent” hanger?
And if not, how much should I expect to pay for it?
Now if I decide me for the “transparent” hanger, when and how should the dentist know it?

Answer:

Dear Trine

I think you should ask the dental practitioner who should treat you. I can't say anything about what options they have.

Bridge 3 led

19. september 2011  
Filed in Teeth

Question:

I have made a 3 part bridge, rear molar + the 2 next in undermunden.

When I chew with the 3 part bridge, it seems not quite right – not quite the same bite. It is as if it is harder to chew in the side where the 3 part bridge.

Outside my teeth nice tightly closed, but when I feel with tongue, I can feel there is air between the teeth (at the 3 part bridge) on the “inner side”. In the other side, where my real teeth are the teeth without the air on the out and inner side.

There must be air between the teeth on the inside?, if not what is the symptoms and damage it can cause?

Answer:

Dear Flemming

I can't give my opinion on without having seen you in the mouth. I think you should seek out the dentist that you've got made your bridge.

All treatments will be given out from which is the best for the patient in the given situation. You can investigate why your tooth was not removed early, but I doubt that you can claim compensation.

Overweight

19. september 2011  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello

I have a question, it is now some years since I had been at the dentist.

I have and still been very overweight, but have been through a major weight loss, and has now come forward to the teeth again to have the attention.

My question is whether I can possibly be addressed in an alm. tandlægestol. At the time of writing weighs I 168 kg.

Mvh Søren

Answer:

Dear Søren

Immediately, I don't mean your weight will pose a problem for most behandlerstole. But it all depends on what behandlerstol the dentist has. Most behandlerstole have a maximum weight they can withstand, which your dentist can inform you about. So you will need to contact the dentist to get the information.

Hope you can use my answer.
