Do you think you might have been the victim of dental surgery negligence? Whether this was done privately or through the NHS, you may be able to make a claim for any harm caused to you.
For most people going to the dentist is not the most pleasant experience, it is even worse if something goes wrong. Although most appointments happen with no ill-effect, mistakes can happen which could lead to permanent damage, or loss of teeth.
We may be able to help you claim if you have suffered from:
- Failure to diagnose, or misdiagnosis of dental problems that have lead to a life changing injury, or loss of teeth.
- Failure to treat dental problems properly which led the wrong treatment, causing you unnecessary pain and in some cases costs.
- Poor standard of care can mean that even though your dentist has diagnosed and treated you correctly, the standard of treatment was poor and has left you with further pain and injury.
- Your dentist failed to spot and diagnose mouth or neck cancer
- You have suffered loss of feeling following a tooth extraction
- Failed cosmetic dentistry
Your mouth and oral health are really important, and injuries in the area can be debilitating and painful.
Root canal procedures, negligence in fillings, crowns and bridges, are all procedures where any injury may cause you extreme pain and discomfort if performed incorrectly.
How can we help?
Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.
Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.

Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. The treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
However, when someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
