Cosmetic dentistry is becoming much more accessible now and procedures such as tooth whitening and dental implants are on the rise. but so are the number of dentist negligence claims.

What Can Go Wrong?

There are many different procedures that dentists carry out and each of them presents a certain amount of risk.  Almost every procedure carries the risk of potential dentist negligence claims if it is not performed correctly.  Your dentist should talk to you about the risk involved in any work being done, before they complete the work. Some of the more common procedures which could bring about dental negligence claims are:

  • wrongful removal of a tooth or teeth
  • removing the wrong tooth
  • not completing sufficiently good fillings
  • not completing sufficiently good crowns
  • tooth whitening issues, such as sensitivity or permanent damage
  • damage to facial or oral nerves whilst carrying out dental work
  • not diagnosing or treating gum disease (periodontal disease)
  • failure to manage tooth cavities or decay
  • poor root canal treatment
  • failed implants
