There is no warranty on the work performed?

Filed in Complaints

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.

You can read more about how to complain about a dental treatment here.

(See below). also other questions in the letterbox that deals with complaints.

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

The death of a tooth after affixed to the crown

27. september 2010  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia, Teeth

Question:

Hello
I've got the makings of a crown on a molar,but I can still not chewing with the tooth. It is now almost 1 year ago, and the two times I have been cut something of the hump, as she believed this could be the reason for that I can't chew.
This has not helped, and now consider my dentist to the nerve may be dying, and that this may be the reason why it still hurts when I chew, and that I therefore must rodbehandles???there are other options.
This is a forsikringsskade, but will the insurance cover this, so long after.

Kind regards, susanne

Answer:

Dear Susanne,

10% of the teeth that get the crown of the “door”, becomes necrotic as we call it in jargon. So it is very common. If you have pain and can't eat with the tooth, then the rodbehandles. The alternative is that it gets pulled out.

Whether the insurance covers is a little difficult for me to answer, but what you can find out of together with your dentist.

Hope you can use my answer.

Should I not be offered a crown?

8. June 2010  
Filed in Treatment

Question:

Hello
I've got a molar rodbehandlet in nov.2009, and this weekend, ie. 19. feb. 2010 is the tooth broken. I must see if I can get an emergency appointment with the same dentist in the morning, which has made rodbehandlingen. Here comes my question: Since the plastfyldningen in the tooth is quite big, should I then not be offered a crown on the tooth, it can I read that most one recommended? Could the tooth have been saved, for I foresee that it must now be pulled out.

Mvt. Anne P

Answer:

Dear Anne P,

It is difficult to answer specifically on your question. It is not certain that the tooth would survive longer with a crown on. It is always assessed individually for each tooth. After a root canal treatment will the dentist most often have a period of observation on the rodbehandlingen of approx. ½ Years before the crowning of the tooth. So I estimate that your dentist has acted correctly.

Hope you can use my answer.

Afraid to lose my teeth when the temporary crown must of

10. april 2010  
Filed in Cosmetic dentistry

Question:

Loved Ones Dentist.

I have 2 months ago got crowns on front teeth for cosmetic reasons. These are according to the dentist temporarily fixed, as I had to get used to them first. The one is lopsided and goes 3mm out over the other. This should now be made, and we have agreed to do both to fully ceramic crowns instead of the metalkeramiske as the dentist had first chosen. I am just so terribly nervous, that my own teeth become loose, when the crowns lirkes of. It seems like they sit very firm.I don't know which glue the dentist used. But my biggest nightmare is to suddenly lose my front teeth completely. Can you help with your experience in this area.

Kind regards, B

Answer:

Dear B,

There is surely no reason to be so nervous. Often the crowns sit very tightly when you have put them temporarily on. But there is no reason to your own teeth would go loose. If that were the case, then would your dentist hardly suggest this treatment.

Hope you can use my answer.

Can you remove a temporary crown?

Question:

dear Dentist

I have made crowns for my front teeth for cosmetic reasons. Since the one unfortunately is skewed and is 3 mm longer than the other, I must have made them. When I got them fitted for approx. 5 weeks ago, we agreed that they were cemented temporarily, so I could get used to them, and only correct if it was necessary.This proved to a be a good idea, as they now must change, but I'm somewhat concerned as to whether you possibly can remove them again without it going out over my own teeth sitting in it. The crown feels as though they are sitting very firmly, I feel. Maybe it's silly to worry about, but it plagues me however part. I have no idea what the dentist has used to cement with.Thank you in advance.

The nervous

Answer:

Dear nervous,

I do not think that you need to be nervous. It is impossible for me to know what your dentist has used as a temporary cement, but the crowns that are temporarily put on, is usually to get by without problems.

Hope you can use my answer.

Dear CP,

It looks not good when your tooth has gone loose now, get it checked at the dentist with the same. If it must be pulled out, it is, of course, painlessly, under local anesthetic. If there is to crown and pin is the price approx. 8000 kr., requires about. 2-3 visits to the dentist.

The dentist have sanded too much in a penny

21. October 2009  
Filed in Treatment, Complaints

Question:

Hello

I've got a new crown put on a tooth which she ladle! And when the new crown was put in and I was comfortable that was the little too big / tall!! she ladle it a little bit, and it came to fit. But when I then came home and kikket in the mirror I could see that she has sanded too much in the new crown of which is sanded down to something black!!! through the white!!!

( now I understand better that she did not gave me the mirror so I could see it down there!!)

It seemed too bad, what can I ask?
For I must pay much money for it, I believe they talked about 7,318,-
Can I ask for. A new tooth?
And it is not more fragile where she has sanded too much of?

Will be happy for your opinion / help

Sincerely, John

Answer:

Dear John,

From your description of events, I believe that you ought to be eligible for a new crown at the dentist's expense, or at least a discount in the price. But it is something you should talk with your dentist about. If you can't agree on an amicable solution for both parties, you have the opportunity to complain about dental treatment. It is often a long process, and you do not for the dentist's bill in the first place.

Read more about it a complaint about a dental treatment

The crown is not necessarily more fragile, where the dentist have sanded too much of that. So it is perhaps more a matter of how it looks. But of course it depends of how much she has sanded, which I of the reasons can not say anything about 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.

Treatment options in crack in molar

8. June 2009  
Filed in Treatment, Teeth

Question:

What treatment options are there ?
It consists of the following:
1 crack in a molar in the mouth.
The crack is horizontal around 1 of the 4-headed extremely at the tip just above the old dental fillings but the tooth. The tooth has an old sølvfyldning in the middle.
I'm not particularly crazy about having drugged and drilled, is the only option a new crown ?

Sincerely mrs Jakobsen

Answer:

Dear Mrs Jacobsen

It is a little difficult to answer your specific case, whether it is necessary with a crown. In some cases, if the filling is relatively small, you can just put a new filling in the plastic. Talk to your own dentist about the possibilities in just your case, also about that you are not so happy about the anaesthetic and treatment.

Hope you can use my answer.
