Dental Extraction Claims (Wrong Tooth Pulled)
Having a Tooth Removed Can Cause Clinical Negligence
Dental extraction, having a tooth removed, is a particularly common dental treatment. It is performed for a variety of reasons, from incorrectly aligned wisdom teeth to unfixable dental damage. The surgery is performed under local anaesthetic but is a standard dental practice and not a particularly complicated procedure.
Despite its lack of complication however increasingly, negligent dental extraction cases are becoming more common. Substantial compensation can be awarded if an error has been made by your dentist. A UK firm of dental negligence solicitors can make a dental extraction claim for you to provide some much needed financial respite from your pain.
A Bad Visit to the Dentist
Nobody enjoys visiting the dentist but it is an essential task. If regular dental checkups are performed by a competent dentist then the amount of dental work required can normally be kept to a minimum. If regular dental checkups are not maintained however, a person may have to undergo more serious dental surgery and this can involve fillings, extractions and even root canals if the situation has progressed poorly.
Although in most cases dental procedures including dental extraction are increasingly safe and effective, human errors can still be made and an example of this is when the wrong tooth is extracted. The patient is then left with a physical and emotional burden when their dental procedure goes wrong.

What Can Go wrong with Dental Extractions?
While dental extraction is a fairly simple procedure, there can be possible complications if the dental procedure is incompetently done by your dentist. As fully trained professionals, dentists have a clear responsibility to perform the best possible dental surgery. If they are negligent in any way and remove the wrong tooth for example then you could make a claim against them for any costs and pain that you incur.
If the dental extraction goes wrong the results can be very hard for the patient. 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 head, from the eyes to the mouth, and may 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
These symptoms indicate that you have suffered negligent dental extraction and that a dental negligence claim should be made.
