What are the signs that my tooth extraction has gone wrong?

While a dental extraction is a fairly simple procedure, there can be complications if it is carried out improperly by your dentist.

The consequences of negligent dental extraction can include the following:

  • Nerve damage, resulting in a loss of dental mobility or sensation. This damage may prevent the victim from experiencing proper function across their face, from the eyes to the mouth. Damage could also be permanent, with some patients unable to properly chew due to dental damage, along with periodic pain in the affected region
  • The development of an oroantral fistula when the upper teeth are operated on. This is a bridge between the dental surgery’s location and the sinus, which may require further surgery
  • Removal of the wrong tooth
  • Wrongful removal of too many teeth
  • “Dry socket” – a dull, aching sensation in the gum or jaw
  • Infected gum tissue
  • Excessive scarring
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Harmful bacteria entering the bloodstream, causing severe infection
  • Excessive discharge, swelling and redness from the infected area
  • An adverse reaction to the anaesthetic

If you are considering undergoing dental surgery of any kind, read our guide to finding a safe cosmetic dentist to help you make an informed decision.

How long do I have to make a negligent tooth extraction compensation claim?

Under laws in England and Wales, you have three years to make a claim for compensation for negligent tooth extraction, from the date of the procedure or the knowledge of negligence.

We would advise you to contact us as soon as possible once you are aware of negligence.

How much compensation could I get for a tooth extraction negligence claim?

The amount of compensation you could receive following a tooth extraction 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 may also be able to claim for the cost of a replacement tooth, which will most likely be in the form of an implant and crown or a bridge.

At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, our team of expert dental negligence solicitors are dedicated to ensuring that you are awarded the maximum amount of compensation for your case, to make sure you are able to get your life back on track, after what we know can be an extremely distressing experience.

How much does it cost to make a negligent tooth extraction compensation claim?

We always work on a no win, no fee basis. This means that even if your claim is not successful, you will not pay a penny of legal costs.

Can I make a claim against a retired dentist?

If your negligent tooth extraction procedure was performed by a dentist that has now retired, you are still able to make a claim against them, as long as you are within the legal time frame. This is normally three years from the date of the treatment, or three years from the date you became aware that the treatment you had was below the standard it should have been.

By law, all dentists must be registered with the General Dental Council (GDC), and must also ensure they have appropriate indemnity and insurance arrangements in place. This allows patients to seek any compensation they may be entitled to, following a case of negligent treatment.

Therefore, even after a dentist retires, they will still be responsible for the treatment which was carried out when they were practising before retirement.

How can we help with your tooth extraction compensation claim?

Our team of experienced, compassionate solicitors are here to help you claim the financial reward you deserve following a negligent tooth extraction procedure.

The compensation you receive can go some way to addressing any physical or emotional distress you have experienced, and it can also help to pay for any corrective procedures or psychological help that you may need. As well as this, a successful claim will help to prevent future patients from suffering in the same way you have, at the hands of the negligent clinic or practitioner.
