Dental Claims in Manchester, Blackburn and Lancashire

A visit to the dentist can be an unnerving experience for many people. Whether treatment is provided on the NHS or a private paying basis, and regardless of whether it is a routine check-up or a complicated procedure, each dentist owes a duty of care to every patient to ensure that the care provided is not substandard. You may be able to claim compensation if something has gone wrong with the treatment that you have received because of dental negligence.

Dental treatment in England is provided by dentists, dental burses, dental hygienists, dental therapists, orthodontic therapists, dental technicians and clinical dental technicians. Treatment ranges from routing check-ups, cleaning, fillings and root canals, to more extensive cosmetic or restorative procedures. The most common types of dental injury include:

  • Delayed or incorrect diagnosis
  • Inadequate cosmetic dentistry - veneers, bridges, crowns, teeth whitening
  • Restorative dentistry errors
  • Failure to diagnose and treat periodontal (gum) disease
  • Wrong tooth extraction
  • Nerve injury
  • Gum injury
  • Failed orthodontic treatment
  • Failed root canal treatment

Our specialist dental negligence solicitors will work with you to secure compensation for your dental negligence claim. Dental mistakes can cause extreme pain and suffering. Damage to teeth can have a psychological as well as a physical impact upon the patient. More often than not, one of the key elements of dental cases is the need for specialist restorative treatment, so when negligence does occur it is important that specialist legal advice is also sought.
