Compensation for a Wrong Tooth Extraction

When it comes to dental work, in general it is an area of medical treatment that we try to avoid. But from time to time some teeth cannot be saved and as a result an extraction is necessary. In recent decades the extraction process has become a great deal simpler and cleaner than it used to be, in fact extractions are becoming increasingly common and now require very little time and rehabilitation period and you can  be back up and running within a few hours.

Although dentists do a great job of maintaining our dental health, from time to time they make mistakes and this can result in an error and the removal of perfectly healthy teeth. If this happens and you are left at a disadvantage or in pain as a result, then you could be looking at making a compensation claim.  

Who could I make a claim against?

When it comes to making a claim you will commonly claim against the operating dental surgeon. Your dentist has a responsibility to give you a correct and accurate assessment of your dental health and if you feel that they have been negligent towards you, or that they have performed unnecessary dental work on you, then you could be eligible to make a claim. 

What could I make a claim for?

When it comes to making a claim for a wrongful tooth extraction there are a number of things that you could claim for. Dental costs in the UK are incredibly expensive and you shouldn’t be left out of pocket as a result of dental negligence. You could make a claim for:

  • Costs – the cost of any dental work that has been undertaken
  • Future costs – the costs of any future dental work that you may need to undertake as a result
  • Psychological costs – any damages that you have suffered on a mental level as the result of a wrongful tooth extraction
  • Additional damages – any damages that you have suffered as the result of the extraction, such as not being able to perform certain activities or any additional pain that you suffer
  • Loss of income – any income that you have lost as the result of not being able to work due to an incorrect extraction.
