Many thousands of root canal treatments are performed in the UK each year. Most of these are successful. However, dentists sometimes make mistakes when performing a root canal treatment. This can lead to a patient continuing to suffer with pain, the treatment may have to be repeated or the tooth may need extracting.

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

  • The dentist under-fills the root canal so the root filling does not reach the bottom of the tooth. In these cases, a patient may be advised that the root filling is “short”.
  • The dentist drills straight through the root canal and out of the bottom or side of the tooth. Similar damage can be caused if the dentist pushes dental instruments too far into the tooth. Usually these perforations cannot be repaired and the tooth has to be extracted.
  • The dentist spills the chemical used in the procedure or it escapes from the tooth causing injury to the patient.
  • The dentist fails to clean the root canal properly by not removing all of the infected tissue or uses an inadequate chemical to flush out the root canal.
  • The dentist overfills the root canal.
  • The dentist fails to inform the patient that part of a dental instrument has been left behind in the tooth after the procedure.
