Dental Negligence Claims Compensation
Dental treatment is often something that we do not look forward to but usually treatment is without any lasting trauma. However, mistakes can happen and this can lead to ongoing pain and trauma, which should not be acceptable from any health professional. At MJW Law we’re here to help you get the compensation you deserve.
What are the most common cases of dental negligence?
We deal with a wide range of dental negligence claims, but the most common cases are:
Periodontitis (gum disease), where a dentist has failed to diagnose and treat the disease.
Cosmetic procedure issues or complications. An example of this is fitting of veneers, crowns, bridges, or teeth whitening, which has been problematic.
Wrongly fitted implants, where the dentist has made a mistake in fitting the implant.
Tooth extractions, where nerves and gums are damaged, or the wrong tooth is removed.
