Question:

My mother-in-law got about 3 years ago made the snap fasteners in its tandprotese of a dentist. in order to solve the problem with a loose prosthesis. The problem was that the gummen were disappearing(my mother-in-law is 82 years of age) the Work was made for a price of 30000 kr. She has since had the snap locks on the switch twice, which she had not been informed about. However, there are now done it to the prosthesis is broken between the two snap fasteners. It was reparetet two weeks ago(for the 900). and is now broken again. The question is whether a prosthesis such without further should be able to break and the treating dentist should be informed about the risk of it, and is there a warranty on the original work. My mother-in-law got to know that there was a lifetime warranty on the work performed to 30000. What can we do to help her?

Steen

Answer:

Dear Steen,

It suggests communication deficits in your case. As a starting point, there is no guarantee on dental work, but you always have the option to lodge a complaint.

Read the evs. more about complaint about dental treatment or dentist

Regarding prosthesis, it is too specific to comment on, since you have to see the patient and give a professional assessment from it.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Should I opt for root canal treatment?

13. January 2010  
Filed in Treatment, Pain and Anaesthesia, Teeth

Question:

I am faced with, I think though, a big problem. Go out and travel a half-year on 5 January and since it is christmas ovs, I have not much time to see an. I got in november removed a temporary filling which I had and a half years. Got the temporary filling because I had a big hole where there was a piece of sølvfyldningen that was broken. Have no symptoms had in the half year I had the temporary filling. When I saw in november gets removed it and put plastic I begin to get symptoms. Already inside at the dentist's, I noticed as she polishes the tooth there is a small area that hurts when touched. This area has bothered me a little bit ago. My dentist thinks it is because the filling was too high and therefore sanded the tooth 2 times. After the grinding has it's place, however, been even more tenderly and responded to cold and when I scrunch with a fingernail. Especially when I'm out in the cold winter air I get many pain through the tooth. The days where I have been very out are the extra delicate and may react to hot. There may also be days where I don't think that the tooth is delicate ex the days where I am mainly at home. I think even the case of to the nerve is too close to the filling, and therefore are very delicate. My concern is that I don't know whether I should rodbehandle it? The best would probably be to let the time go, but it is a little difficult since I will soon travel to asia for half a year. Can live with my pain now, but I need to know that the pain does not become worse and that there is no risk of inflammation. Must finally be said that I am 25 years old, have never before been rodbehandlet. What should I do?

Sincerely, Laura

Answer:

Dear Laura,

It you must let your dentist assess for you whether the tooth should rodbehandles or not. It is a bad sign that the tooth reacts to heat and that you have pain in the. Evidence to suggest that it ends with a root canal. If your dentist determines that it is best to wait and see, it is probably true in your case.

Hope you can use my answer.

Should I be on painkillers for a month?

21. October 2009  
Filed in Treatment, Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

Dear dentist,

I now have over a longer period of time to live with dental pain and I fear that it will.
The summer of 2008 I switch dentist due. moving, here I get made a number of holes. Immediately after this is generated I of pain in the back upper molars on one side, and my dentist lubricates my tooth necks and gives me a softer toothbrush. The teeth continue to be sore and when I thought that my problems arose in connection with the new dentist, I choose to switch.
A day hit I sharp pain in my whole one hovedhalvdel, it comes in ”bursts” of a few minutes with regular intervals. I go first to the doctor in attendance, as I think it is the sinuses, then to the vagttandlægen, that gives me painkillers and proposes a root canal at my own dentist. I get started on a root canal a day before I travel away to a 5 month stay in Spain with the message that I need to follow up on it down there. Down there lays a dentist something cleansing (camphor-like) and it can according to him be allowed to sit the next 5 months. In the period I am virtually painless. July 2009 I followed up on rodbehandlingen, it will be cleaned and washed over several times (it hurts in between each time) so she dare not close it. When the pain is reduced, it closes and then I have no problems until about august when it starts to hurt a little sometime in between – now it is taken to and I take ibuprofen f
stores times daily to be able to keep it off. I was at the dentist yesterday and she took a picture and could not see anything. She took my visdomstand (at the side of the rodbehandlede tooth) and gave me a penicillin-cure, which I'm on now and a message to come back in a month. It seems I'm a long time having to be on pain medication.
I would really just like to hear you whether it is normal procedure, and whether you see. what I have written does my dentist take care of it, as she should. I have no chances even to assess.
The pain I can best describe as a kind of ”clamp”, as if there is excess pressure in the tooth (and it pains also in the teeth by the side of, and little in them at the bottom of the same page)
Thank you in advance for answers,

Mvt. Mette

Answer:

Dear Mette,

It is a very boring situation you've ended up in. It is always difficult to assess something, when there have been more dentists involved, since you do not have in-depth knowledge of the entire course of the disease. And it is also hard for me to comment on someone so specifically.

I think your current dentist is doing is right, from the nature of the problem she is facing at the present time. It is not uncommon that patients get told to take painkillers in a period of time in order to see if the pain subsides or disappears altogether. My recommendation is that you follow your dentist's instructions, also mht. to the pain medication. But if you even think that the pain did not subside or is to hold out, should you seek out your dentist again.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Hello

I've got a new crown put on a tooth which she ladle! And when the new crown was put in and I was comfortable that was the little too big / tall!! she ladle it a little bit, and it came to fit. But when I then came home and kikket in the mirror I could see that she has sanded too much in the new crown of which is sanded down to something black!!! through the white!!!

( now I understand better that she did not gave me the mirror so I could see it down there!!)

It seemed too bad, what can I ask?
For I must pay much money for it, I believe they talked about 7,318,-
Can I ask for. A new tooth?
And it is not more fragile where she has sanded too much of?

Will be happy for your opinion / help

Sincerely, John

Answer:

Dear John,

From your description of events, I believe that you ought to be eligible for a new crown at the dentist's expense, or at least a discount in the price. But it is something you should talk with your dentist about. If you can't agree on an amicable solution for both parties, you have the opportunity to complain about dental treatment. It is often a long process, and you do not for the dentist's bill in the first place.

Read more about it a complaint about a dental treatment

The crown is not necessarily more fragile, where the dentist have sanded too much of that. So it is perhaps more a matter of how it looks. But of course it depends of how much she has sanded, which I of the reasons can not say anything about it.

Hope you can use my answer.

Treatment options in crack in molar

8. June 2009  
Filed in Treatment, Teeth

Question:

What treatment options are there ?
It consists of the following:
1 crack in a molar in the mouth.
The crack is horizontal around 1 of the 4-headed extremely at the tip just above the old dental fillings but the tooth. The tooth has an old sølvfyldning in the middle.
I'm not particularly crazy about having drugged and drilled, is the only option a new crown ?

Sincerely mrs Jakobsen

Answer:

Dear Mrs Jacobsen

It is a little difficult to answer your specific case, whether it is necessary with a crown. In some cases, if the filling is relatively small, you can just put a new filling in the plastic. Talk to your own dentist about the possibilities in just your case, also about that you are not so happy about the anaesthetic and treatment.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Damage teeth whitening the enamel and what is the cost of a teeth whitening?

Question:

Is it possible to get done the teeth a few shades whiter without damaging the enamel?
And is it a treatment offered by dentists, and what is the cost of such a treatment?

With kind regards, Marie

Answer:

Dear Marie

You can whiten your teeth a few times without damage to the enamel. However, it is best to get whitened teeth in a dentist, for the best possible to avoid damage by the bleaching.

There are a few things you should take into account before one can give a definite price on bleaching, and it also varies from dentist to dentist. But you must reckon with approx. 2.500-3.000 dkk. for the actual whitening. If you have old plastic fillings in front teeth need to these evs. be changed in the field, as they do not whiten along with the teeth. So is the treatment the more expensive.

With kind regards
