    Dental Implant Negligence

    Dental implants are a surgical procedure and should be carefully planned and only carried out by a dental professional who has the necessary skills and expertise to carry out a dental implant procedure.

    Some common mistakes, which are likely to provide grounds to make a claim, are:

    • The dentist fails to properly assess a patient to ensure that they are suitable to receive a dental implant. If a patient is not suitable for an implant, there is a high chance of the treatment failing, causing damage and injury.
    • The implant is placed when a patient has insufficient bone in the gum or active gum disease.
    • The crown or bridge is fitted to the dental implant before it has fully integrated into the gum.
    • The implant is positioned too close to other teeth or dental implants or it is placed on to a nerve.
    • The implant is placed at the wrong angle meaning that it looks wrong, it causes the patient pain and it may be very difficult to clean leading to infection.

    Bridges and Crowns

    Bridges are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth and link to adjacent teeth.

    Some common mistakes with bridges, which may provide grounds to make a claim, are:

    • The teeth supporting the bridge are inadequately assessed, leading to complications, and sometimes the loss of these teeth.
    • The bite is inadequately assessed, leading to discomfort and jaw pain.

    Crowns encircle (or cap) a tooth or are attached to a dental implant.

    Some common mistakes with crowns, which may provide the grounds to make a claim, are:

    • The crown is of poor design or fit, making it difficult to clean. This can lead to decay, infection and the loss of teeth.
    • Too much of the tooth is removed during the fitting of the crown which leads to increased sensitivity or the death of the nerve in the tooth.
