We've got your negligent orthodontic treatment claim covered
Orthodontic treatment is treatment used to straighten the position of the teeth. When visiting an orthodontist, you expect a professional experience, and to receive a good standard of care. In most cases, orthodontic and dental professionals treat their patients with the utmost care and attention, but unfortunately mistakes are sometimes made.
If you experience negligent orthodontic treatment, either via the NHS or privately, it could cause you unnecessary pain or suffering. As specialists in dental negligence, we can help you make a claim for compensation.
Types of orthodontic claims we help with
When it comes to negligent orthodontic treatment, there are a number of things you could claim for, including:
• Failure to implement an appropriate treatment plan
• Removal of the wrong tooth
• Wrong number of teeth removed
• Incorrectly aligned braces or retainers
• Braces or retainers used for the wrong length of time
• Poorly constructed or unsuitable braces or retainers
How might you be affected by orthodontic malpractice?
If you’ve experienced orthodontic malpractice, you could require further treatment, which can be costly, time-consuming and uncomfortable. You might experience unnecessary pain and suffering as a result of errors made in your treatment. You may also be left with poorly aligned teeth, which could affect your confidence.
Am I eligible to make an orthodontic negligence claim?
Dentists and orthodontists, whether working for the NHS or privately, have a duty to provide you with a certain standard of care. And if you’ve received negligent orthodontic treatment, you have the right to bring a claim for compensation against those responsible.
If you think you have received negligent orthodontic treatment, you may be able to make a claim. For example, if you had braces fitted to straighten teeth, but they were left on for too long and damaged the teeth, you could be able to make a claim.
