Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry providing treatment to improve the positioning of teeth.
Unfortunately, there are a growing number of claims where patients have not received the best care in orthodontics, with negligence causing pain, suffering and injury.
Some common mistakes, which are likely to provide grounds to make a claim, are:
- A failure to properly assess a patient and carefully plan the treatment. In these circumstances, a patient may receive unsuitable treatment and injury may be caused, including the loss of teeth.
- With orthodontic treatment, teeth may need to be extracted to ease overcrowding or to expose adult teeth which are still within the gum. Unfortunately, negligence and poor planning can lead to the extraction of the wrong tooth or teeth.
