Claiming compensation against an orthodontist

Whether we are consuming food, smiling or even just trying to hold a conversation, our teeth are a major contributor to the way in which we can do this effectively. The alignment of your teeth and even your jaw to a certain point can have a major impact on the way that you are able to perform these tasks and if there are any problems then you may need to undertake a form of orthodontal work.

If you feel that you have been the victim of an error made during orthodontal work, then you could have been left with serious on-going health problems as a result and these could have a direct impact on your daily life. If you do find yourself in this situation then you may consider a compensation claim. 

What is an orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a person who is directly responsible for many elements of your dental care. In general, orthodontic work is commonly associated with braces, plates and other devices which are designed to change the structure of your teeth, cure an overbite or provide something other form of sophisticated dental treatment that you wouldn’t be able to receive from a regular dentist.

Orthodontists are more geared towards the cosmetic side of dentistry and often perform more complex procedures than a traditional dentist, in many ways this can mean that the tasks they undertake also carry with them a far greater risk and as such you do have the potential to be injured.

What are some typical injuries that could be sustained while visiting an orthodontist?

Some of the common injuries that you could sustain while visiting the orthodontist include:

  • Errors and mistakes made during surgery
  • Errors during anaesthetic
  • Administering the wrong treatment
  • Failure to use appropriate equipment during surgery
  • Failure to adequately diagnose an illness which requires treatment.
