For approx. 14. days ago I got the prosthesis no. 2.
The first one I have had for a few years. This is gold-plated. When I got the prosthesis no. 2 was made of glossy metal. In advance, I have a greater molar which is also gold-plated.

Thank you in advance.

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.

Temporary filling in a root canal

2. may 2012  
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.

Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello.

I never got assigned me a new dentist, when I turned 18. Is it still possible to get my medical records transferred or “throw” the kommunaletandpleje it out?
It should just be said that it is 3 years since I turned 18. And, unfortunately, has not been at the dentist since, due to private reasons.

kind regards
karina

Answer:

Dear Karina,

In most cases, it is not necessary to request journal, so you can without any hurdle seek out a new dentist. So can you possibly. ask them to request your medical records from børnetandplejen.

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.

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.

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.

You can read more on hangers here

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.

How is it when you put the crown on?

28. september 2010  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello. I've just been at my dentist and had a tooth in the undermunden 2 times because plastfyldningen fell of and I have now been told that if it ruptures again, there is a crown on. My question is how is it when you put the crown on, and how long does it take and what does the dentist before to make the tooth ready?

mvt. sisse.

Answer:

Dear Sisse,

When one can not make a filling in a tooth, the pga. there is so much left of the tooth, you have to put a crown on. The first time you visit the dentist he/she will drill (work on ie. prepare the tooth for a crown) all the way around the tooth and then take an impression. The image will then be sent to one of the techniques that manufactures the crown, so it fits perfectly to your tooth. It takes approx. 2 weeks from your first visit to the crown is ready to be put on your tooth. While you are waiting for the crown, will the dentist put a aluminiumskrone or a plastkrone on the tooth, so that you can eat with it, and to keep the space until the real crown gets put on

Hope you can use my answer.

Is it skoletandplejen who has the responsibility?

10. august 2010  
Filed in Other questions

Question:

Hello.
My daughter of 18 has just been at her new dentist (after skoletandplejen) and diagnosed with 8 holes, the 4 are serious. The gums are also problems with. The dentist said to her that he does not understand that skoletandplejen not have done or said something, when she was there last. WHAT CAN WE DO? HOW CAN WE DETERMINE WHETHER THERE REALLY ARE 8 HOLES?? IS it skoletandplejen not to have done its work well enough – or is it the other dentist, there are errors on the! WHAT DO WE DO??

looking forward to your reply.

Else

Answer:

Dear Else,

It is difficult to comment on your question without even having seen the photographs and journal by the school dentist, and now with the new dentist. 8 holes sounds very violently. Talk with the new dentist to get the requested medical record and x-rays of the skoletandplejen, then you can look at it together.

Hope you can use my answer.
