Cosmetic treatments for your teeth often tend to be elective. However, cosmetic dental treatments can often overlap with traditional dentistry, as you may require essential work in addition to cosmetic dental surgery.
It may be a case where you had to have a tooth extracted due to damage and the best option for the permanent tooth replacement is to use a dental implant to create a pleasing aesthetic result.
Dental procedures such as these are highly complex and require an experienced surgeon to avoid any undesirable complications and outcomes. Even then, mistakes can and do happen and a person is harmed due to the medical negligence of the dental practitioners involved. Even the mouth can be damaged in a way that has far-reaching consequences.
We assist with a variety of dental negligence claims, ranging from nhs dental negligence to issues following private dental surgery.
We have helped clients left in physical and emotional pain when veneers have gone wrong, or they have had recurring dental implant problems due to sub-standard work.
To successfully claim dental negligence, you must establish three things:
- There must have been a breach of duty (breach of duty)
- The breach of duty must have been the cause of the loss (causation)
- THere must be an injury or damage to you (loss)
Some dental negligence complications you may experience include:
- Incorrect tooth removal
- Damage of healthy teeth
- Loss of expensive implants/crown
- Negligence associated with dental implant procedures
- Performing unnecessary treatment
- Providing treatment without consent
