Orthodontist Negligence

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.
