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

Hope you can use my answer.

There is no warranty on the work performed?

Question:

I have lost a gold crown put on a broken tooth. Thus, it has only been cast on the rest of the tooth that was left. It is about a year ago, I got it made.
Is the dentist be liable ift. to repair the damage, so put the crown on again without payment, or is there no guarantee on work performed?
I have the crown, so it should be that low again, without the vast processing; images, etc.

Thank you in advance!

Mike

Answer:

Dear Mike,

There is no warranty for the dental treatment. If you believe that you have been a model, you have the opportunity to complain about a dentist or treatment.

It is also not unusual that one puts a penny on anything resttand. I don't know what you have agreed. But if you have the crown, and not broken any more of the tooth, so I think that you need to seek out your dentist and have it put on again. The dentist is not obligated to repair the damage without compensation.

Answer:

Dear Tommy,

There is no guarantee the treatment. If you think it is unfair or considers the treatment is not good enough, there is the opportunity to complain. In my opinion, is the offer you have received from your dentist is reasonable, as he is not obliged to give a reduction in price.

What do I claim on the ifm. with a bad bridge?

12. august 2010  
Filed in Complaints

Question:

For two and a half years ago I had replaced a 4-membered bridge in the middle of the mouth. Shortly after, it turned out that the outermost tooth to the left had a crack in the porcelain on the cross in the middle of the tooth. The dentist now has two times reparet the crack with a plastfyldning. I have asked if there is an insurance policy that covers something and he says yes, but there is not really anything in the matter, I am pleased with my dentist and he hasn't even made the bridge. I have also asked him whether he had turned to those who have made the bridge, but that he had forgotten.

I would now like to know, what have I really claim in this context, and how should I behave.

In addition to that it is annoying to have made repairs, then you can also see it, and there is no natural teeth that are chipped, cracked and repaired across.

I would also like to keep the bridge so far, but must see in the eyes, that you cannot get by grinding on a thin porcelænstand, each time it needs to be repaired, then the bridge holds so not as long as otherwise.

Help me please with a reply, so I know how I should behave, before I talk with my dentist again. I'm a little tired of his stalling the answer.

Helene

Answer:

Dear Helene,

It is impossible for me to say anything about the warranty terms of the supplier your dentist have used. I think you should urgently find a solution with your own dentist. It does not prove to be possible to find a solution with your dentist, you always have the option to complain about your dentist or the treatment you have received.

Pr. 1. January 2011 will enter a new complaints system will be established in the force. But it deals primarily with the public employees dentists and not private practice dentists, who will continue with the old complaints system.

Question:

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.

Complications after root canal treatment. Who pays?

7. september 2009  
Filed in Complaints

Question:

I have made a root canal in my tooth, and when this began to crumble, I made a crown instead (in the month of February 2009). Now I have got an infection in the same tooth, which has developed into a large tooth abscess. It has been incredibly painful and has been on the pencilinkur and pain. I have today (d. 7/9-09) has been at the dentist and get told that it is a gum disease. I have now examined Netdoktor, what this is because and that is that the cause of gum disease is to continue hiding dead tissue and thus the bacteria in the rodkanalens nooks. It will then say that the dentist in the dawn of time has not made my root canal well enough. Can it be right that I should pay for a tandrodsbehandling, or closer to the operation??? It is when those who have not done their crafts well enough, which caused my problem today. There must be a form of guarantee. Hope you can answer my question. With friendly greetings f
ra a frustrated Sisse...

Answer:

Dear Sisse,

There is usually no warranty on dental treatment. Your dentist has probably made his job properly, but there are limits to where we can reach with our instruments. There is one more main canals in the roots according to the tandtype we are talking about. And there are also these small bikanaler where we can't reach with rodfilen. Some times it is so unfortunate that there will be infection in them. The only way to reach them is via this small rodoperation.

Hope you can use my answer.
