With tooth extractions a dentist should properly assess the tooth to be removed, carefully plan the procedure and then exercise care when performing the extraction. A failure to do so may lead to a mistake and cause injury to the patient.

Some common mistakes, which are likely to provide grounds to make a claim, are:
- The wrong tooth is extracted.
- A serious fracture of the jaw bone is caused by the dentist using excessive force.
- Damage is caused to a nerve where the dentist failed to exercise proper care.
- Damage to other teeth, bridges or crowns.
