    Question:

    Hi,
    I have a question regarding a broken tooth due. a root canal treatment. Now I can see in one of your replies that there is no guarantee for root canal treatment??
    I got in the month of march made a root canal, and it looked fine, said the dentist, but now there broken a piece of the tooth and the treatment is also broken, as I can shake with the other side of the tooth. This must be bad craft, and must be able to be covered by a warranty??
    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Answer:

    Dear Henry Wadsworth,

    First I will say that your tooth is not necessarily broken just because it has been rodbehandlet. There are several reasons why a tooth gets rodbehandlet, and often there is not much left of a tooth when there is rodbehandlet. It sounds as if your tooth is broken, and it is something that can happen. When the dentist looks at the quality of a root canal, he will look at the rodfyldningen, ie. he replaces tandnerven with, it's close. And that is what he mean by that it looks fine. To the tooth ruptures has not necessarily something with poor craft to make, but is a quite common complication, which in some cases can happen.

    You are not covered by any form of warranty at the dentist. But think that has been a model of a Danish dentist, have the opportunity to complain about the treatment. You can read more about how to complain about a dentist here.

    You can also apply for compensation from the Tandlægeforeningens Patientforsikring. You can read more about compensation for malpractice here.

    Hope you can use my answer.

    With kind regards

      To Joan Olsen

      have read the above and are a bit confused about your answer. The answer is that dentists are largely exempt from liability.

      In all other purchase and services here in Denmark, you are ensured according. buy-reklamationsloven. Why are you, as a customer of dentists are at a disadvantage with regard to the claim for an item that is paid, but do not hold in the short/longer term.

      I craft and in my profession, made to the responsibilities of his craft.

      • Dear Thomas H. Nielsen,

        You must have read wrong in my response to henry wadsworth. I don't have the answer to dentists largely exempt from liability. On the contrary, declared I about the options patients have to complain about a treatment or a dentist, if the patient, for example, believe that the dentist has made a bad piece of craftsmanship.

        Mht. to claim I do not think that you can compare any craftsman's profession with a dental practitioner. We are talking here about a health area, and bl.a. therefore, should any dispute be assessed individually by the experts in the field. For your information I can inform you that there currently working on a new complaints system will be established which will make it simpler and easier for patients to complain.

        With kind regards

      Hi,
      I had made a plastfyldning in the left molar 3-4 months ago. Fell 2 large pieces of filling for a couple of days ago, I've had severe toothache since. Should the dentist does not take it on themselves, when the filling has held such a short time ? Vh Daniel
