Answer:

Dear Tina,

Your situation doesn't sound particularly nice. Dentists know well to Cluster headache, and it has on occasions given rise to tooth extraction, where it is misdiagnosed as a toothache. This is typically the teeth in overkæbens sideregion, the same side as the headache occurs. Some patients with the horton's, get the pure oxygen in the bottle to help the pain.

I think you need to consult your own dentist. Evs. even turn on one of the two ' dental schools in the country.

Dentistry in Aarhus, denmark
Dentistry in Copenhagen

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Aarhus shedding 70 percent of the skoletandklinikkerne

28. august 2009  
Filed in News

The great shortage of dentists, and the children's improved dental health, get now Aarhus municipality to change the current structure of the tandplejeområdet. Skoletandklinikkerne be reduced by approx. 70 percent and dentists must be in a storklinikker.

The city council of Aarhus municipality decided Wednesday evening to gather skoletandlægerne on 10-16 storklinikker, instead of the current 43 less skoleklinikker distributed on the city's 49 public schools, writes jyllands-posten. At the schools which in the future will be without a dentist, there will instead be clinics with dental hygienists and dental assistants to provide preventive dental care.

The new structure of the tandplejeområdet will be implemented over the next 10 years, and the reason is, besides the fact that it is difficult to get dentists to the municipality, to the children in Aarhus have fewer and fewer holes.

The previous structure dating back to the 1970s, where a dentist only treated 400 children and young people, where they today must take care of around 1,500 children and young people. In the 1970’s got children and young people in Aarhus in the average drilled in the five teeth per year. Today the average is small with 0.7 wells per year. The expectation is that in the future only will need 30 dentists in municipal dental care in Aarhus.

The new development on the tandplejeområdet in the municipality of Aarhus is also a consequence of the increasing tandlægemangel. And that trend goes towards fewer and larger clinics where there are more dentists working in teams. Many young dentists prefer the community they find at a clinic with several dentists.

The social democrats and the SF are skeptical about structural change
“We are in favour of the setting, but we will have a security that you place a part of the future of the dental clinics, where there is a need. They must not be added after a spredekam, but where the need is greatest,” said Steen B. Andersen (S), to the Danish newspaper jyllands-posten. Steen was so worried for the new model, that he also wanted an evaluation after the first year.

One of the greatest challenges facing the new model on the tandplejeområdet is the so-called socially disadvantaged groups, who typically get more tooth decay than their peers. They must have a positive discrimination in relation to where the future storklinikker must be placed in the municipality.

Claus Thomasbjerg (SF), said to jyllands-posten that he is concerned that the children in the future need to spend time on transport to get to the dentist.

“Many parents have to take time off at work to get their children to the dentist. It can mean that they pull tandlægebehandlingen out, until it fits with their work”, argued Claus Thomasbjerg on.

SF suggested that the soft change up, so that the larger units should be supplemented by four mobile tandlægeenheder, which can run around to the clinics.

Gert Bjerregaard from the liberal party (venstre pointed out, like For Steen B. Andersen, that the clinics should be in areas where there is the greatest need, and that there also needs to be easy access to public transport in the areas.

“So we avoid that children spend too much time on transport, and it takes time from the teaching,” said Gert Bjerregaard to jyllands-posten, and highlighted that the main objective of the new structure is that dentists need to work in larger units in order to learn from each other and gain experience.

The location and cost of the big clinics
There is yet to name the schools that will house the new storklinikker. But in Aarhus municipality's report on the new structure are the following schools are referred to as commandments in the schools, which in future will house the large clinics, Møllevangskolen, Vejlby School, Moscow School, Tovshøjskolen, Kragelundskolen and Vestergårdskolen.

The major dental clinics must have three to five tandlægehold, and the cost of establishment of a single storklinik is expected to be around 8.5 million. kr. The total cost for the new tandlægestruktur is expected to reach 100 million. kr. as well as an unknown amount in transportation costs of vulnerable children.

The Danish dental phobia stress dentists

12. June 2009  
Filed in News

It is estimated that 10-20 percent of danes are so afraid of the dentist that they completely dropped the regular visits to the dentist. And to ca. 4 out of 10 adult danes suffer from dental phobia to one degree or another.

In addition to having major consequences for the individual, they have high rates of dental phobia also major societal consequences. It costs the society dearly in sickness and in subsidies for expensive treatments, which may be necessary after many years of neglect and lack of inspection at the dentist.

Fear of dentists affects all groups in society, and not just people with limited resources and profits. “There is a slight over-representation of unemployed people, but all groups are affected, also the bosses and bank managers,” says Rod Moore, a researcher at the university of Aarhus, Viborg Folkeblad.

The lack of correlation between the level of education and frequency of dental phobia can be linked to the reason for the tandlægeskrækken to be found in childhood.

Now Dentists of terror
A group of aarhus dentists and psychologists have been awarded the 190.000 Danish kroner from the central denmark Region to a project to cure dental phobia. One of the aims of the project is to get a larger part of the population to regularly go to the dentist. And it is for practicing dentists who must be better to help patients with tandlægeskrækken.

“It's about meeting the patient on a human level. It is important that the dentist sits down for a chat with the patient about this fear and listening to the experiences the patient had with the dentists. Experiences, as often is the fault of the tandlægeskrækken. And so it is very important that the conversation does not take place in the tandlægestol, as the patient to fear so much, it's about creating confidence,” says Rod Moore, who is a project manager at the Research and treatment center for dental phobia of Dentistry in Aarhus.

“70 percent of all with dental phobia have had a traumatic experience at a dentist before the age of 12 years, and it creates problems for them to this day. But I hope that the project will be able to help a part of them,” says Rod Moore on.

Dentists are affected also by the tandlægeskrækken
In the description of the project also states that dentists can get the stress of having to relate to the resistance they encounter from the patient when they must deal with anxious patients. It can be both mentally and physically exhausting and mean risk for worse treatment of the patient or the symptoms of burnout in dentists.


Dentist, ph.d., dr. odont. Rod Moore has, among others, in 2006 defended a doctoral thesis on dental phobia and pain at the University of Aarhus with the title “Psychosocial aspects of dental anxiety and clinical pain phenomena“. He has also been affiliated with Aarhus Tandlægeskole for over 20 years, been a private dentist for 20 years and been employed at two universities in the UNITED states, among other things, at the Ohio State University, where he also acquired his master's degree. Rod Moore has numerous publications and has lectured at several universities in both Europe and the UNITED states.
