Compensation for a Failed Dental Procedure

Dental work in the UK is incredibly expensive, and for that reason it is one type of medical work that many of us try to avoid. When it comes to looking after our dental health a regular six month check-up can generally help to ensure that we maintain good dental health and that we don’t require any further treatment down the road, but in some situations despite the best laid plans, we may end up having to have dental work regardless.

If you do require dental work then it can be a costly and painful process and something that you will likely not want to go through many times, and in many situations dentists do a fantastic job of performing quick, safe dental procedures which get us back up and running in no time. Unfortunately however, dentists are only human and as such they can make mistakes, if you are the victim of a failed dental procedure then you could make a compensation claim for any injuries that you receive as a result. 

What are some common Failed Dental Procedures?

There are a number of failed dental procedures that you could claim for and these include:

  • Incorrect extraction – if your dentist removes the wrong tooth then you could make a compensation claim
  • Failed fillings – if your dentist doesn’t perform a filling correctly it could come loose and cause further damage to the tooth as a result
  • Cuts and lacerations – your dentists could cut your gums while performing a dental procedure and this could lead to an infection
  • Allergies – you could have an allergic reaction to any of the materials used during a dental procedure. 

What could I claim for?

When it comes to making a personal injury claim you could claim against a dentist if you feel that they have been negligent while providing you with a service. This could include negligence in your consultation or negligence during surgery which could leave you with a number of potential injuries. If this occurs you could make a claim for:

  • Medical expenses including any dental costs from existing or further treatment that you incur
  • Damages that you incur such as a loss of income that you receive as the result of being unable to work due to pain or inconvenience
  • Psychological trauma that you suffer or any consistent pain that will not go away.
