Circumstances qualifying for a claim?

In dental surgery, mistakes can be made which are avoidable and result in pain and discomfort, loss of the ability to eat drink chew or even speak properly. Your appearance can be altered to the extent that you find it extremely embarrassing. Cosmetic dentistry is on the increase with many high street dentists increasingly claiming to be able to provide cosmetic dentistry or smile makeovers thereby increasing the scope for things to go wrong.

Some examples of the type of dental negligence claims with which we deal with are:

  • Failure to diagnose/treat periodontal disease (gum disease).
  • Failure to diagnose/treat dental decay (caries).
  • Extraction of the wrong tooth.
  • Injury to teeth mouth jaw or gums during surgery (for example cuts, lacerations and burns from equipment).
  • Failed or poorly performed implant surgery (crowns).
  • Inadequate or failed root canal therapy (for treatment of bacterial infection).
  • Nerve damage as a result of substandard treatment (resulting in loss of function and feeling).
  • Negligent smile makeover (veneers, crowns, etc.).
  • Unnecessary treatment (for example fitting of crowns where veneers would have sufficed).
