Many of us dislike going to the dentist at the best of times, so when you are injured as a result of dental negligence it can be both painful and upsetting.
Dentists, just like doctors and other health professionals, have to provide treatment to a reasonable standard of care. If your dentist or hygienist fails to do this and you suffer an injury to your mouth, gums or teeth as a result, you might be entitled to compensation.
Common examples of dental injuries are:
- Unnecessary removal of teeth
- Failed tooth implants
- Additional treatment to rectify incorrect dental work
Our medical negligence lawyers are experienced in bringing claims against dentists. You can read more on our case studies page.
