What Kind Of Complications Do Patients Face When Tooth Extraction Has Gone Wrong?


When a tooth extraction goes wrong, you can be left in a great deal of avoidable pain. The pain may also be long-term, especially if the tooth is fractured during the procedure, or you feel nerve damage.

There’s also the psychological impact that a bad or negligent tooth extraction can leave. Horrible dental experiences may leave you fearful of going to the dentist again. It may also mean you’re afraid of seeking additional support.

If you are afraid then our specialist dental negligence solicitors are here to support you.


Wrongful Administration Of Anaesthetic.

If the wrong tooth is extracted, you will also be exposed to an administration of anaesthetic that could have been avoided. This could also lead to wider impacts of this exposure; such as additional pain, discomfort and the anxiety of having to experience the procedure a second time. And when this is the case, all these impacts are fully considered when processing your extracted wrong tooth claim.

To put your mind at ease, should your dental claim provide evidence that there was a negligent or wrong amount of anaesthetic used, we will work tirelessly to deliver you the compensation you deserve.

If you have received the incorrect administration of anaesthetic which has had a detrimental impact on you, Patient Claim Line can assist you in your claim

Frequently asked questions about Extracted Wrong Tooth Claims

Our expert legal team answer your questions about making an Extracted Wrong Tooth Claim

The amount of compensation you will receive when you make an extracted wrong tooth claim, depends on the circumstances of your case. Every negligence claim is unique, and every patient affected by negligence is also affected differently. This means that the final pay-out will be based on the severity of the injury you experienced. There are a series of other factors which are considered too, including the long-term impact on your health, medical expenses, and any loss of earnings.

If you are making an extracted wrong tooth negligence claim, it is important to gather evidence to prove that your dentist was negligent during your treatment, or that the current suffering has been caused by negligence. The more evidence that can be collected will help us to present a strong case on your behalf and increase your chances of success. Some common types of evidence collected to support extracted wrong tooth claims include your dental records, your statements about how the negligent treatment has affected you, witness statements and any correspondence there may be if you made a formal complaint about the error.

When making an extracted wrong tooth negligence claim, you should be mindful that a claim should be made within three years. The three-year time limit begins from when you or your loved one received negligent care, or from when you became aware that negligent treatment occurred. It is important to seek legal advice within the three-year window, as you may miss out on compensation you are entitled to. If the case involves anyone under 18, the legal case must be pursued within three years from the date of their 18th birthday.

    Sarah's Story

    "Now we have peace of mind"

    My husband, Nick, went back and forth to the doctors for a long time and tried everything the doctor recommended. But his illness got worse, to the point that he was in agony.

    In the end we got so desperate that we asked for a referral. The doctor was reluctant, so we had to consult a private hospital. That’s when we found out there was a tumour. It took years from the onset of his illness to finally start cancer treatment.

    He used to be a man with a lot to live for, but in the end he was in so much pain that he withdrew from the family. He became angry that nobody had helped him sooner, and the legal team were able to give him the validation that he was desperately seeking. The NHS confirmed if they had done more, Nick would still be alive today.
