Regardless of the type of dental negligence claim that you may have, our Dental Negligence Solicitors know that mistakes by dentists can have negative consequences; such as pain and suffering, time off work and emotional stress.

Most dental care is of a good standard. However, dentists and dental technicians can make mistakes, causing unnecessary pain, suffering and expense.

Common Things that can result in Dental Negligence Claims:

  • Failing to manage/treat decay or gum disease
  • Failing to recognise the symptoms of oral cancers
  • Inadequate crowns, fillings or root canal therapy
  • Nerve damage
  • Taking out the wrong tooth
  • Unnecessary work

Cosmetic Dentistry Compensation Claims

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 hydronic acid.

Dental Implant Compensation Claims

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.
