Extracted wrong tooth compensation

The removal of a bad tooth can be an incredibly painful experience at the best of times. However, if you have gone through a procedure involving an incorrect tooth extraction, it is likely that your recovery will be impacted.

If a dentist does pull or fill the wrong tooth, there will likely be additional procedures required to put this right and you may suffer additional pain and treatment costs that could have been avoided.

As well as the physical trauma and pain of this experience, there’s the added anxiety of hoping this doesn’t happen to you, or anyone else ever again.

If your dentist has extracted the wrong tooth, our medical negligence team are ready to take your call. When seeking compensation, it is important to work with a specialist dental negligence solicitor, capable of guiding you through the claims process.

Wrongful administration of anaesthetic

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.

When your dentist extracts the wrong tooth, you are exposed to an administration of anaesthetic that could have been avoided. There may be 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 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.

When it comes to medical negligence claims, Patient Claim Line are one of the UK’s leading firms. We are here to help you every step of the way and will not give up until we feel we have done everything in our capacity to help you with your claim.

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.

What are my rights if my tooth extraction has gone wrong?

If your tooth extraction goes wrong, it isn’t right that you should suffer from something you are not at fault for.

Although mistakes can be made, we do not want anyone to feel alone, upset or even helpless because of the actions of a dental practitioner.

Therefore, our dental claims solicitors will work diligently to help you not only understand your tooth extraction rights, but also have a chance of receiving compensation for your trauma and injury.

Case Study

Vincent's Story

"He's always there for us"

At the age of 2 we noticed our son Vincent had trouble with his hearing. We had this testing over a number of years and were repeatedly told there was nothing wrong.

Initially we thought this was a speech and language problem, this wasn't the case. It took 4 to 5 years of assessments, with the constant response that there was nothing wrong with his hearing. A different test was them carried on Vincent overnight where it was found he was profoundly deaf.

After years of frustration we were finally able to provide Vincent with the support he required and received an implant. This has enable Vincent to be able to hear. The support from our solicitors has enabled to to gain access to specialist which have supported Vincent in closing the gap in his speech he lost out on to his peers.
