Dental negligence solicitors
Dental negligence claims are diverse and we treat every client as an individual and deliver a bespoke legal service which is sensitive to nuances of their case. Our aim is to deliver legal support and secure proportionate compensation for every circumstance to help with the distress caused.
Stephensons cover numerous areas of dental negligence including:
- An incorrect or inadequate filling
- An incorrect or inadequate root canal
- An extraction of the wrong tooth
- A delay in diagnosis
- Treating periodontal disease
- A failure to treat at all, or incorrect treatment
- Nerve damage
- Damage to another tooth during treatment
- Cosmetic dental negligence
In addition to the above cases, there may also be complications in cosmetic dentistry and dental implant procedures. Alarmingly, an increasing number of dental negligence claims involve cosmetic dentistry, such as bleaching, orthodontic work and porcelain veneers. In addition to this, occasionally dentists may use dermal fillers such as botox and these cases can also have complications which may lead to the dentist being liable to pay compensation.
Dental negligence compensation for cosmetic procedures
Dental implants such as porcelain veneers are now regularly used to replace missing teeth; more often in elderly people, but this procedure can apply to people of any age if they lose a tooth. Fitting dental implants such as veneers is not only a complex procedure, but also a specialised skill. Unfortunately, mistakes may be made whereby as a result, the implants are fitted incorrectly. The process or repairing problems with dental implants can be extremely painful and expensive. If a patient claims compensation for dental implant errors, this will not only help them with the cost of the repairs but also help to ensure that such mistakes do not reoccur.
