Dental Negligence Claims
No one enjoys visiting the dentist, but when the treatment you receive is negligent the experience will be even more harrowing. The dental negligence may arise from treatment through the NHS or through a private treatment provider. It may have been medical or cosmetic - it makes no difference. If the treatment or intervention was either unnecessary or not provided to the standard expected by the dental profession, then you may be entitled to make a dental negligence claim.
There are many different circumstances under which dental negligence occurs. These include:
- teeth being incorrectly or unnecessarily removed
- infections - caused due by lack of care taken during treatment or surgery
- failure to diagnose certain dental conditions which subsequently leads to complications and/or infections
- the wrong tooth being removed - leaving the patient requiring further dental treatment
- anaesthetic being applied incorrectly or not applied at all
- negligence by an orthodontist
- failing to check whether the patient has any allergies related to the dental equipment being used
- negligence relating to a cosmetic dental prodecure
- complications being caused by untrained or under-qualifed staff carrying out dental procedures
These examples of dental negligence can all lead to trauma for the patient concerned. Negligence can cause complications and infections which require the patient to undergo further treatment and/or surgery which would not have been necessary if dental negligence had not occurred. The patient may also suffer unduly with pain and discomfort and take a longer time to recover from the treatment they have received if there has been some element of dental negligence.
