Most dental care is of a good standard. However, dentists and dental technicians can make mistakes, causing unnecessary pain, suffering and expense.
Typical dental error cases 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 dental negligence claims for compensation involve cosmetic dentistry. These cases include accidents during bleaching, porcelain veneers, crown and bridgework and orthodontic work. Some dentists use dermal fillers, Botox or hyaluronic acid, and these claims can also be dealt with on a No Win No Fee basis.
Implants are now commonly used to replace missing teeth. Fitting dental implants is a specialised skill, and sadly dental errors occur causing implants to be fitted incorrectly. Resolving problems with implants is often painful and expensive, and claiming compensation can provide both the funds to correct the errors, and help to ensure that the same mistake doesn't happen to someone else.
