Dental Law Partnership Client Wins £24,000 for Dentistís Negligence in Missing Tooth Decay and Damaged Sinus

Released on: July 29, 2013, 11:22 am

Industry: Law
July 29, 2013, 11:22 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- A Dental Law Partnership client has received £24,000 in dental compensation after inadequate care resulted in untreated decay, lost teeth and sinus damage.

The client, a 39 year old woman from the South of England, won the sum in an out of court settlement after losing 3 teeth and suffering a damaged sinus following substandard treatment from her dentist. She was also forced to endure repeated dental treatment.

Between 2002 and 2008, she visited the dentist regularly, with routine checkups, scale and polishes or fillings, carried out every six months. But after fitting a crown to one of the womanís upper teeth, she suffered a lot of pain which was so bad it kept her up at night. It was so bad, in fact, that just one month later the adjacent tooth had to be removed.

During this extraction procedure, the dentist damaged the crowned tooth and the crown came off. But that wasnít all, because whilst removing the roots from the tooth socket, a fragment of the tooth root became lodged in the patientís sinus.

This caused such excruciating pain that after a few days, the woman was forced to attend her local A&E. She was also worried that her nose was running constantly. An X-Ray proved that the tooth root lodged in her nose was causing constant discharge. The hospital referred her to a specialist to have the misplaced root extracted.

But whilst attending this procedure she was informed of the untreated tooth decay of 3 of her teeth. At this point she decided to change dentist and began an extensive treatment plan to fix the problem.

The original dentistís failure to provide adequate care to the decaying teeth meant that the patient lost two teeth and was certain to lose another in the future. All will require painful implant treatment in the future. Further decay on other teeth had to be treated with fillings. She discovered that her original dentist had failed to properly assess the extracted tooth prior to carrying out the procedure. If he had carried this assessment out she would have avoided the treatment of the tooth fragment within her sinus.

While her dentist refused to admit or deny liability, the Dental Law Partnership were able to claim £24,000 for their client in an out of court settlement. Speaking after the decision she said: ďI am very pleased with the outcome, I never thought I would have to sue my dentist but at least I have redress for the dental problems I sufferedĒ.
