Dentist Malpractice

There are many things which can be classed as dentist malpractice and lead to long lasting problems for the patient. You may be able to make a claim if you’ve experienced any of these examples:

  • Delays in Diagnosis – This can lead to the problem getting worse as there will be a delay in treatment.
  • Incorrect Treatment – Such as the wrong tooth being extracted.
  • Wrong Diagnosis – This can lead to unnecessary treatment and further complications.
  • Poor Treatment Standards – If treatment has been carried out poorly by your dentist, this can cause more pain and issues.

Experiencing any of these things can cause pain and stress as well as having an effect on your daily life. Some people can be left with infections, damage to their nerves or even a lack of feeling in the jaw or mouth. There is also help available for other types of personal injury - if you are suffering with this. We can offer assistance to anyone who has suffered as a result of dentist malpractice in Carrickfergus so just get in touch today.

Possible Injuries Caused by Dentists

A number of different injuries could be caused by your dentist or another healthcare professional such as a hygienist, orthodontist or nurse. Here are some complications which could be caused by malpractice or negligence in these situations:

  • Poor Root Canal Treatment – A root canal is usually carried out to treat infection, tooth decay or a damaged filling. If not done correctly, it can lead to issues such as teeth fractures, residue from dental instruments and leftover bacteria not being removed.
  • Oral Surgery Mistakes – You should be made aware of any risks before an oral surgery takes place so you can choose whether or not to go ahead with it. If your dentist makes a mistake or you end up with an injury and you were not warned about the risks, you may be able to make a claim.
  • Incorrectly Fitted Bridges or Crowns – Many people will have a crown fitted to cover and protect a damaged tooth, and bridges are fitted to fill gaps left from missing teeth. If these are not fitted properly due to negligence they can break or cause discomfort for the patient.

If you’ve experienced any of these problems, you could be eligible to get compensation. Each person’s situation will vary and this can also affect the amount you may be entitled to, but a specialist solicitor will be able to help and give advice on what will be available. We can also offer help with holiday sickness - if you have suffered an illness while on holiday.

Dental Implants Gone Wrong

Many people have dental implants fitted to improve the appearance of their teeth and repair years of damage. These involve fitting a screw into the gum which an artificial tooth will be placed onto. This can be done for one or more teeth depending on the needs of the patient.

However in some cases people see their dental implants gone wrong if they have been poorly fitted or result in an infection. You could even end up with nerve damage which might occur during the placement of the implants which will require them to be completely removed. We can help if you’re unsure about making a claim in Carrickfergus for problems with dental implant treatment.
