Dental negligence explained
Most dentists and dental hygienists are highly skilled and take great pride in their work. They try their best to keep you safe and healthy. However, in some cases, your treatment or diagnosis can lead to an accident or an illness, in both cases you may be able to claim compensation.
Most common causes and types of dental negligences
Most commonly, we help clients with the following accidents:
- Gum disease: where the gum disease has not been diagnosed and treated and has led to damage to your jaw and/or loss of teeth.
- Dental implants: where implats have been fitted incorrectly and extremely painful.
- Cosmetic treatments: damaging teeth when carrying out cosmetic treatments, such as veneers, crowns, bridges and teeth whitening.
- Root canals: where a dentist has not removed the entire root and has led to pain and infection.
- Teeth extraction: where teeth have not been extracted correctly and has led to nerve damage or a tooth has not been correctly taken out.
Whether your accident caused you tooth loss, tooth damage or other injuries, if it was due to someone else’s negligence, you can claim compensation.
