Errors by dentists
Most dental care is of a good standard. However, dentists can make mistakes, causing unnecessary pain and suffering and leading to increased expense for patients. Typical dental errors include:
• Inadequate root canal therapy
• Failed implants
• Extracting the wrong tooth
• Failing to manage and treat decay
• Inadequate fillings
• Inadequate crowns
• Failing to manage gum disease (periodontal disease).
An increasing amount of dentistry involves cosmetic procedures. These include bleaching, porcelain veneers, crown and bridgework and orthodontic work. Some dentists use dermal fillers, Botox or hyaluronic acid. Dentists who do this type of work should be specially trained, although even then dental errors sometimes occur.
Implants are increasingly used to replace missing teeth. This involves inserting a titanium plate into the jaw and fitting a crown to it. If there is not enough bone in the jaw, bone can be grafted. Fitting implants is a skill, and our dental error team will make sure you get compensation if your implant is not done correctly.
