Dental/Orthodontic Errors

As with any other treatment, occasionally mistakes can occur following dental treatment. This can cause extra pain and suffering and possibly cosmetic and psychological embarrassment.

In cosmetic dentistry, it is very important that the full implications (pros and cons) of each option for treatment is discussed with you before it is undertaken, so you can give informed consent to the treatment.  For instance, a dentist may suggest crowns (which involves filing down teeth and inserting implants in preparation for crowns) when other less invasive treatment may be satisfactory (such as veneers).

Common Dental Claims

Dental or orthodontic treatment may involve treatment that is necessary for one’s good health or for cosmetic reasons.  It is often a complex and difficult treatment, during which things can go wrong which are avoidable such as: –

  • Extraction – incorrect (wrong tooth removed) or incomplete (failing to remove all of the tooth and leaving part in the gum/jaw)
  • Poor or inadequate root canal treatment
  • Crowns (poor result or even unnecessary treatment)
  • Fillings (failed or inadequate)
  • Failed treatment (tooth decay/gum disease)
  • Cosmetic treatments (bleaching, veneers, orthodontic) which is substandard
