Dental Implant Claim FAQs
What are the Signs That My Dental Implants Have Gone Wrong?
Some patients are incorrectly advised to receive dental implants, despite not being a good candidate for them because, for example, they have pre-existing gum disease or a lack of bone in the jaw to support the implant. This could lead to the implants ultimately failing and the patient experiencing physical pain and potentially psychological harm as a result.
Other common indications that the dental implant has gone wrong are:
- Screws breaking after being tightened excessively, leaving the jaw permanently damaged, the implant unsalvageable and the tooth missing
- Peri-implantitis, a condition where the gum tissue surrounding the operated area decays, causing severe pain and leaving the implant openly visible. This can lead to the loss of the implant
- The failure of the implant to integrate with the patient’s bone, resulting in bleeding, damage to the bone and potential failure of the implant

How Much Dental Implant Compensation Could I get?
The amount of compensation you could secure from making a dental implant claim is dependent on the specific circumstances of the claim. Factors taken into consideration when calculating dental implant compensation include:
- The level of pain and suffering you have experienced
- The cost of the losses you have incurred due to this negligence, such as taking time off work
- Any future losses that you may incur, such as further treatment to rectify the issue
As a rough guide, dental implant compensation can range from £5,000 all the way up to £150,000 in extreme cases. Once our solicitors have had an initial consultation with you, they will be able to give you a more accurate estimate of the compensation amount.
How Much Does it Cost to Make a Dental Implant claim?
The cost to make a dental implant claim will again depend on the circumstances of the claim. However, we work on a no win, no fee basis, so unless your claim is successful you will not incur a cost.
If your claim is successful then we charge a maximum fee of 30%, which includes a success fee and unrecovered costs.
How Long Do I Have to Make a Dental Implant claim?
You will have up to three years to make a dental implant claim. The time limit starts from the date when you had the dental implants fitted or from when you realised there was an issue with them, which has caused your suffering.
We would advise you to get in touch with us as soon as you feel that you have suffered due to dental implants gone wrong.
How Long Will it Take to Make a Dental Implant Claim?
The claims process for every dental negligence case will vary according to the individual circumstances of each client. As soon as you get in touch, your dedicated solicitor will assess your case and then be able to provide you with a detailed plan of how long the process will take, and what will be involved.
