If your orthodontist has failed to provide you with an adequate standard of care, you may find you are able to make a claim against them. Orthodontic treatment is a specialist area of dental care and nine times out of ten they conduct their job down to a 't'. However, when things to go wrong with the care your orthodontist is providing you with you may find yourself in serious pain or with a serious aesthetic issue.
Orthodontist Negligence Claims
You may have experienced orthodontic negligence if you have experienced any of the following:
- Badly fitted braces
- Removal of incorrect teeth
- Removal of too many teeth
- Ill-interpreted or ill-performed x-rays
- Failure to provide treatment
- Failure to diagnose
- Unnecessary use of invasive techniques or serious surgery
If your orthodontist has engaged in the provision of any treatments which they were not properly trained/qualified to perform, you may be able to make a claim. Negligence arises when an orthodontist pursues a course of action deemed inappropriate by a reasonable body of medical professionals, fails to diagnose a problem accordingly when most others would have, or performs a procedure so negligently that is causes unnecessary pain and suffering to the patient.
How Do I Claim?
Making a dental negligence claim is simple. Firstly, it is important to contact a specialist solicitor as they will more often than not be able to inform you whether you have basis for a successful compensation claim.. Try to do this as soon as you feel healthy enough to. You have 3 years to enter a claim, but the sooner you being the process the better. This will give the chance to make the strongest case you can against the third party.

You can then decide if you wish to take any further action. In many cases, a no win no fee option will be available to you.
