Violent pain

2. may 2012  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

I started a week ago to get the indescribable violent pain in my tooth, where it after some days felt as if all the teeth in the same side did hurt very much. I was at the dentist's today and was diagnosed with a hole, which had gone down to the nerve, which was causing the extreme pain. I have now got it made, but now the pain after the anesthesia come back again, now they are just twice as bad. It must be said that I have pain around the clock and I am not sleeping at night, because the pain is so extreme. I've got some Ibumetin(400mg) and alm. notebook which tilsydladende only works a very small percentage. I have held myself to these all week, but now my limit is gone. It may not fit, I have to go and be so sore all the time. So my few questions are:

After what I have come to find through google.dk, so can a hole down to the nerve cause inflammation, which is causing the extreme pain. So I am thinking.. If this is the case, then I should surely be able to get prescription on something which is a lot more effective than these, as I now get?

And can I do something to prevent than later root canal treatment?

I hope to get a response otherwise
thank you in advance.

Sincerely, Anne

Answer:

Your tooth must rodbehandles if you have so many pains in so long. It will help in the pain to get the rodbehandlet. It is not necessary with penicillin if you have inflammation in a tooth.

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.

Pain again, again

1. may 2012  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

My 5’is in the left-hand sides undermund hurts. I have had problems with dental pain in the for several years. It is rodbehandlet, but still pain. Drilled out again. Still feel pain. Penicillin, Primcillin several times and Metronidasol 1X. Last roddehandl.for almost 3 years ago, where I was given penicillin several times. The dentist said that if the inflammation was not completely gone, it would spread to the weakest tooth.It came 2 weeks later, where visdomstanden the same side was violently inflamed and had to be removed.Since the pain has come and gone, often quite violent, so it feels up in the above tooth and almost spreads in the cheek.The tooth is brushed in the dental neck, as it at the same time is very sensitive to cold.The tooth is of course x-rayed several times, without my dentist can see anything. The hygienist has talked about a fistula, which komemr and go, but even at a rodspidsoperation believe she does not, you can be sure, the pain subsides.
18 years ago I was out for an accident, and it turned out somewhere along the way, that was on fine cracks in several molars, which are either rodbehandlede or removed.I get 10 mg.Amitriptyline dgl.for nerve pain, as I feel around in the head after hjerneraumet.

Sincerely, Swiften

Answer:

Dear Swiften,

If there is something with a fistula that comes and goes, it should be treated regardless of whether there is doubt as to whether the pain subsides or not. Me aware can the inflammation from the one tooth not attack some other weak teeth. So your 5er and visdomstand are two different things.

Hope you can use my answer.

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.

No it can not if the damage is already done and your nerve has been damaged. But the conversion of the diet is a good idea to avoid holes in the teeth.

Pay for two root canals

25. september 2010  
Filed in Complaints

Question:

Hi I have 5 years ago, got a tooth rodbehandlet. I should have it crowned. The dentist finds that the tooth is not “completely dead”. So it must rodbehnadles again. They charge 1200 dkk once!! Is it true that you can get and have to pay 2 times for the same tooth rodbehandlet 2 times??? I have not paid the last bill yet.

SINCERELY Thie

Answer:

Dear Thie,

It is difficult to answer specifically. But sometimes there are more canals in a tooth, and often they are difficult to find. Perhaps that is what has happened in your case. In such a case, it is reasonable that you pay for it, because rodbehandlingen would otherwise just be more expensive the first time.

Hope you can use my answer.

Is my tooth rodbehandlet?

14. august 2010  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia, Teeth

Question:

I have lost a crown, went to the dentist, who could tell me, that it could not be put in again when there was Karius in the tooth, also said that there was rodebehandlet,which I believe it is(it is a number of years ago). Pga. disease partly at the dentist and me, I have now gone with the “open” root in about a month, where it has been featured alm. dining, without I have felt any kind of discomfort/pain, my question is: can it be done with an untreated root?

Kind regards

Vibeke

Answer:

Dear Vibeke,

Yes, it can. The nerve in a tooth can go and die without you notice it or gets toothache. So if your tooth is not already rodbehandlet, then you have probably not be able to notice something because it is dead.

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.

Should I opt for root canal treatment?

13. January 2010  
Filed in Treatment, Pain and Anaesthesia, Teeth

Question:

I am faced with, I think though, a big problem. Go out and travel a half-year on 5 January and since it is christmas ovs, I have not much time to see an. I got in november removed a temporary filling which I had and a half years. Got the temporary filling because I had a big hole where there was a piece of sølvfyldningen that was broken. Have no symptoms had in the half year I had the temporary filling. When I saw in november gets removed it and put plastic I begin to get symptoms. Already inside at the dentist's, I noticed as she polishes the tooth there is a small area that hurts when touched. This area has bothered me a little bit ago. My dentist thinks it is because the filling was too high and therefore sanded the tooth 2 times. After the grinding has it's place, however, been even more tenderly and responded to cold and when I scrunch with a fingernail. Especially when I'm out in the cold winter air I get many pain through the tooth. The days where I have been very out are the extra delicate and may react to hot. There may also be days where I don't think that the tooth is delicate ex the days where I am mainly at home. I think even the case of to the nerve is too close to the filling, and therefore are very delicate. My concern is that I don't know whether I should rodbehandle it? The best would probably be to let the time go, but it is a little difficult since I will soon travel to asia for half a year. Can live with my pain now, but I need to know that the pain does not become worse and that there is no risk of inflammation. Must finally be said that I am 25 years old, have never before been rodbehandlet. What should I do?

Sincerely, Laura

Answer:

Dear Laura,

It you must let your dentist assess for you whether the tooth should rodbehandles or not. It is a bad sign that the tooth reacts to heat and that you have pain in the. Evidence to suggest that it ends with a root canal. If your dentist determines that it is best to wait and see, it is probably true in your case.

Hope you can use my answer.
