A client of the Dental Law Partnership receives £32,750 in Compensation following negligent dental treatment
The Dental Law Partnership helps South East woman to claim more than £32,000 in dental compensation after dentist installs shoddy bridges.
The specialist dental solicitors at The Dental Law Partnership have another client that has been awarded compensation, after a South East woman won £32,750 in an out of court settlement for the inadequate bridgework she received from her dentist.
The woman, aged 55, received faulty bridges which caused pain and difficulty in eating.
The client originally visited her dentist in 2007 with concerns about the size of the gaps between some of her bottom teeth, and from here she was referred to an orthodontist for advice. Whilst the client visited the orthodontist, she still wanted to get another opinion before committing to extensive dental treatment, and for this reason attended another dental practice in the area.
After first visiting the new practice in early 2008 a treatment plan was drawn up, but the dentist who had created the plan left the practice and was replaced by another. The replacement dentist fitted two bridges in her lower jaw. Both bridges would replace one tooth and be four teeth long.
But shortly after the bridges were fitted the patient began to suffer considerable pain and difficulty in eating. This trouble caused her to revisit her original dentist and explained about the pain. Here she discovered that the bridges did not fit properly. The original dentist advised the patient that the bridges fitted by the last dentist would have to be removed. A root canal specialist also agreed that the bridges would have to be removed, since the left bridge in particular was loose and painful. In 2010, a further specialist suggested that the bridge work was unsatisfactory and an implant supported bridge would be required.
Because of one dentist’s inadequate bridgework, the client had suffered prolonged pain and in order to correct the shoddy work, the teeth supporting the bridges had to be removed entirely.
The client received £32,750 in dental negligence compensation in an out of court settlement. While the dentist accepted responsibility, the client was nonetheless pleased with the support and advice provided by the dental experts at the Dental Law Partnership.
Speaking after the decision she said: “I am grateful to the Dental Law Partnership for the assistance they provided throughout my ordeal, and I intend to use the damages I received to replace the teeth I lost with dental implants”.
