Failed dental implants
The failure of a dental implant does not always indicate that there has been sub-standard or negligent treatment. Implants can fail for a variety of reasons, so the first step in assessing any dental implant claim is to ascertain the reason for the implant failing, and ruling out causes that are unrelated to the standard of dental care, such as smoking and poor oral hygiene.
Not all patients are suited to receiving dental implants, so your suitability should be carefully assessed by the dentist before the procedure is carried out. Failure to properly assess a patient could result in a claim being made.
Issues can arise where screws break because they have been excessively tightened, causing damage to the jaw. Dental implants can also result in gum tissue decaying and making the implant unstable.
In addition, we can assist with peri-implantitis claims.
What is a dental implant claim worth?
The level of compensation awarded is individually assessed on a case by case basis. Various factors are taken into account such as the severity of your injuries, the impact on your life, the need for additional dental treatment, any permanent damage suffered, the extent of your financial losses and expenses, and any detrimental impact it has had on your mental health.
