What are the signs that my root canal has gone wrong?

Most root canal treatments work well for dental patients but complications can occur during or after root canal treatment. Common complications include:

  • Root fracture
  • Instrument fracture inside the root canal
  • Perforation of the tooth by the instrument
  • Failure to clean, shape or fill the canals appropriately
  • Poor quality fillings/crowns

When can I make a root canal compensation claim?

You may be eligible to make a root canal claim if your dentist:

  • Fractured an instrument inside the root canal and failed to inform you
  • Failed to remove the nerve completely
  • Perforated an instrument through the side of the root
  • Failed to clean, shape or fill the canals properly, which resulted in infection
  • Did not gain informed consent
  • Did not advise you of alternative, less costly treatments
  • Made errors during the dental procedure, resulting in pain or infection

When a root canal procedure has failed, immediate action is required to prevent the infection from worsening. Possible next steps include:

  • A second root canal treatment
  • Surgery to remove the infected root tip (apicectomy)
  • Extraction

How much compensation could I get for a root canal dental negligence claim?

The amount of compensation you could receive following a root canal compensation claim will vary depending on the circumstances of your case. You may be able to claim compensation for loss of earnings, as well as for needless pain and any corrective procedures you may need to undertake. You might also be able to make a claim for the replacement of lost teeth with an implant retained crown, and any future replacement implant crowns, as well as general future dental expenses.

At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, our team of experienced dental negligence solicitors are dedicated to ensuring that you are awarded the maximum amount of compensation for your case, to ensure you are able to build your life back up after what we know can be an extremely distressing experience.
