Tooth “pulled” out

Question:

Hello

I have had a hole in the inner tooth in the mouth for a while. I chose to book an appointment at a new dentist than my usual, when my “old” dentist was too expensive.
I have taken an x-ray of the tooth before the dentist begins to drill into it.
It ends with, that the hole is so deep, that it goes to the root of the tooth and bleed.
And I get to know that now the tooth rodbehandles – sour fun!
After coming home determines the I me to get pulled the tooth out, since I can not afford at present to get a root canal.
When I 2 days later comes to the dentist, even an x-ray before the tooth should be pulled out, and when tandrykningen begins, she finds out that it must be, as it is for the close up of the tooth in front and thus can not be vrikkes proper loose – break along the way.

What actually was a simple hole has been much more complicated. It must be said, that my new dentist is far from seemed competent and had to repeatedly ask for the assistance of the clinic's proprietor, who also ended up having to yank the tooth out completely.

My question is, what is reasonable that I should pay for such a place. I believe that she should have a presumption that the hole was so deep that it could reach the root.
The situation I have tried that before with a dentist, and thus taken the position before that was done.
The first day of work is wasted, and subsequently, I am thinking that a tooth, where the half was drilled away, is weak, and therefore easily breaks off, what which the made the process much more complicated and more expensive.

With kind regards

Answer:

Dear Gitte

I should probably have talked the possibilities through before the choice of treatment.

The price you must speak with the dentist about. Maybe you can get a discount in the future.

Hope you can use my answer.

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.
