Answer:

Dear Torstein,

It is very common to plastic fillings symptoms. In some cases there may be symptoms for up to several months and in some cases disappear the symptoms never. I think you should go to your dentist to see if your sammenbid is in order. If a filling or more is too high, they can cause similar symptoms.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

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 the anesthesia does not eliminate the pain?

25. march 2010  
Filed in Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

Hi..

I've been at the dentist to get drilled two holes for the first time today. I have never been drilled before, and therefore it was also the first time I was stunned.
I don't feel the anesthesia worked because I could feel pretty much everything, and it did really really hurts, got the chills and shook very much – was simply the worst I have ever tried. My question is whether you think the anesthesia worked? Is it not supposed not to be able to feel anything?

I was pretty swollen afterwards, and found it difficult to talk, at the same time I was also quite shocked, so were just home – had I not talked with my dentist about it. But think it is a little hard to pay $ 500. for stunning, when you don't feel it has worked..

Mvt. Anne Camilla.

Answer:

Dear Anne, Camilla,

If you had pain during treatment, your stunning not worked as it should. Of course, it is supposed to be a painless experience to come to the dentist. I think you should take a chat with your dentist. Sometimes nervousness have an impact on the anesthesia.

Hope you can use my answer.

Should I be on painkillers for a month?

21. October 2009  
Filed in Treatment, Pain and Anaesthesia

Question:

Dear dentist,

I now have over a longer period of time to live with dental pain and I fear that it will.
The summer of 2008 I switch dentist due. moving, here I get made a number of holes. Immediately after this is generated I of pain in the back upper molars on one side, and my dentist lubricates my tooth necks and gives me a softer toothbrush. The teeth continue to be sore and when I thought that my problems arose in connection with the new dentist, I choose to switch.
A day hit I sharp pain in my whole one hovedhalvdel, it comes in ”bursts” of a few minutes with regular intervals. I go first to the doctor in attendance, as I think it is the sinuses, then to the vagttandlægen, that gives me painkillers and proposes a root canal at my own dentist. I get started on a root canal a day before I travel away to a 5 month stay in Spain with the message that I need to follow up on it down there. Down there lays a dentist something cleansing (camphor-like) and it can according to him be allowed to sit the next 5 months. In the period I am virtually painless. July 2009 I followed up on rodbehandlingen, it will be cleaned and washed over several times (it hurts in between each time) so she dare not close it. When the pain is reduced, it closes and then I have no problems until about august when it starts to hurt a little sometime in between – now it is taken to and I take ibuprofen f
stores times daily to be able to keep it off. I was at the dentist yesterday and she took a picture and could not see anything. She took my visdomstand (at the side of the rodbehandlede tooth) and gave me a penicillin-cure, which I'm on now and a message to come back in a month. It seems I'm a long time having to be on pain medication.
I would really just like to hear you whether it is normal procedure, and whether you see. what I have written does my dentist take care of it, as she should. I have no chances even to assess.
The pain I can best describe as a kind of ”clamp”, as if there is excess pressure in the tooth (and it pains also in the teeth by the side of, and little in them at the bottom of the same page)
Thank you in advance for answers,

Mvt. Mette

Answer:

Dear Mette,

It is a very boring situation you've ended up in. It is always difficult to assess something, when there have been more dentists involved, since you do not have in-depth knowledge of the entire course of the disease. And it is also hard for me to comment on someone so specifically.

I think your current dentist is doing is right, from the nature of the problem she is facing at the present time. It is not uncommon that patients get told to take painkillers in a period of time in order to see if the pain subsides or disappears altogether. My recommendation is that you follow your dentist's instructions, also mht. to the pain medication. But if you even think that the pain did not subside or is to hold out, should you seek out your dentist again.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

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.

With kind regards
