Dental Negligence

Dental Negligence at a Glance

Dental Negligence claims can be complex and at Pryers we have many years of experience in dealing with these claims. We should be able to trust our dentist at all times and expect the best possible treatment, however sometimes mistakes can happen which can have long-term consequences.

Contact us today to speak with one of our dental negligence specialists.

When visiting the dentist you should expect to receive the best possible care and treatment. However, mistakes can occur with treatment, incorrect advice can be provided and diseases and decay can be missed. If you’ve been the victim of a mistake, you might need a dental negligence solicitor.

Dental negligence can cause pain and suffering, the need to undergo further treatment and, in some cases, the loss of teeth. Victims of dental negligence can also suffer other losses, such as a loss of earnings and travel expenses incurred by making frequent trips to dental appointments.

Neglect or mistakes by dentists and dental technicians

We appreciate that the majority of dental care is of a high standard, however there are times when dentists and their technicians make mistakes, or miss the opportunity to act on early symptoms, thereby causing unnecessary pain and suffering. This can also lead to expensive remedial dentistry that may not have initially been necessary.

Typical dental errors or mistakes can include:

Claims due to errors in cosmetic dentistry

There are an increasing number of claims being made which involve accidents and errors during cosmetic dentistry. Mistakes and errors by dentists and dental technicians can occur during bleaching, the fitting of cosmetic veneers, crowns, bridges and in other types of orthodontics. These claims can all be pursued on a No Win No Fee basis.

Dental Implant Compensation

One of the main solutions to replace a missing tooth is by using a dental implant. This is a specialist area of treatment, and sometimes dental implants can be fitted incorrectly, which leads to painful and expensive remedial treatment. Claiming compensation is a way to seek recompense for this treatment, and the experienced dental team at Pryers can help advise and guide you through your claim.
