We've got your failed dental procedure claim covered
Failed dental procedure compensation
A trip to the dentist for a regular check-up should be a relatively straightforward and pain free procedure. You should be safe in the knowledge the dental practitioner is qualified and experienced in their job, however when the trips twice a year are left for longer than that, problems can arise and require more attention as a consequence.
It is completely understandable that when you visit the dentist, you expect the highest level of care and a fully professional service. If you feel that this is not the case and you feel that you have suffered or still have ongoing oral health problems, you could consider making a dental negligence claim.
The person who you would normally claim against in this instance would be the performing dentist, as they were the ones who were responsible for the procedure. Dental care can prove costly, so if you feel that they have been negligent towards you either before, during or after treatment, it is worth finding out if there is anything we can pursue for you.
Possible claim types may include:
• A filling that has been carried out incorrectly
• Any damages to teeth during operations
• Any change in the sensitivity of your teeth
• Any issues with root canals
• Incorrect or wrongful procedure
• Wrong tooth being extracted/extraction of tooth when not necessary
This list is not exhaustive and there may be other issues that you have encountered with your dentist which are not covered here.

Damaged teeth from an operation
Dentists are medical professionals, and as such, are expected to carry out dental procedures in a safe and hygienic way. If you have suffered damaged teeth from an operation due to negligent treatment, then you are entitled to pursue a compensation claim.
If your teeth are visibly damaged, or if the damage is more than just cosmetic; such as increased pain, sensitivity, new pain in the teeth or nerves or a change in sensitivity, then our medical negligence specialists will be able to advise you on how to make a claim against your dentist.
Root canal complication claims
When you visit your dentist, you expect to leave with your teeth and mouth in good condition. Further complication as a result of your dental procedure should never happen. However, if your dentist has acted in a negligent way and your root canal procedure does not go as expected, this is likely to be a stressful and painful experience for you that could have been avoided. In these circumstances, you have the right to assess your legal options.
The compensation from your root canal complication claim could help cover the cost of any further or additional treatment. Furthermore, the compensation could finally bring an end to your suffering by paying for corrective surgery.
To claim for negligent root canal treatment, or any of the points highlighted above, we recommend keeping a record of your failed dental procedure experiences close to hand, so that we can build a clear understanding of your experience.
Good dental hygiene is incredibly important and here at Patient Claim Line we realise that making a claim against a dentist can feel as daunting as going to the dentist in the first place. Any problems in this area can have a lasting effect on your life and confidence, so our medical negligence solicitors will help you in every way we can to get your life back on track and get you smiling again.

"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.
