Dental Negligence Claims
Dental Negligence Compensation Claims
Trips to the dentist are rarely pleasant, but treatment is usally essential to fix toothaches, infections or other dental problems. However, things can go wrong and if you suspect your dentist’s work is below standard, it’s important that you take advice and understand your rights.
People are increasingly seeking out cosmetic dentistry, such as the fitting of veneers, implants, bridges and tooth whitening, and with this increase in demand we are also starting to see a growing number of cases in this area of dentistry where things have gone wrong.
The after effects of negligent dental treatment can include you struggling to eat, difficulty sleeping and having to take time off work.
Before beginning treatment your dentist should discuss with you what your options are and ensure that you understand and seek your consent to treatment before then undergoing dental surgery.
Furthermore, your dentist and/or hygienist should ensure that the correct level of anaesthetic is applied to ensure that you do not suffer any form of anaesthetic awareness during the course of the dental treatment.
