Types of Cosmetic Dental Surgeries
Common Dentistry Negligence Compensation Claims
Many people fear going to the dentist and certainly few look forward to a spell in the dentist’s chair. When you put aside that anxiety though and you do go regularly to minimise the risk of bigger dental problems taking root, you have a right to expect professional and competent dental care.
If however your dentist or dental clinician doesn’t uphold the standards of care you should expect from your visit to the dentist’s office, you may suffer dental negligence. When your dental surgery has gone wrong, you may be able to make a claim for dental negligence compensation.
If you’re unsure what to do about a potential claim, you can speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors. Call our dental negligence solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back to start your dental surgery negligence claim.
Smile Widely for Cosmetic Dental Surgery
The American dream of a dazzling white smile and perfect looking teeth has become more popular here in the UK in recent years and cosmetic dentistry has benefited from this increased popularity. Many cosmetic dentists now offer smile makeovers with treatments including teeth whitening, veneers and dental implants and crowns to restore or replace broken teeth.
But what are the major types of dental surgeries that we deal with at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors?
Teeth Whitening for Cosmetic Dental Improvement
Teeth whitening is perhaps the most popular type of cosmetic dentistry currently available in the UK today as non-white teeth are becoming less and less acceptable socially. While teeth naturally become darker as people age, that process is accelerated when people drink a lot of tea, coffee or red wine or they smoke.
The most common type of dental teeth whitening is external bleaching where dental whitening gel is applied on the outer surfaces of the patient’s teeth. Laser or power bleaching may also be used for this type of teeth bleaching.
For patients who’ve had root canal treatment, internal bleaching is performed by the dentists drilling a hole in the tooth and putting the teeth whitener inside the tooth. This application is then removed about a week later and the hole is filled in with a tooth-coloured filling.
However if your teeth whitening didn’t go as you would have liked and you’re suffering from common symptoms of dental teeth whitening negligence such as extreme teeth sensitivity, severe chemical burns or an extremely bright whitening indicating over-bleaching, then you should call a dental teeth whitening solicitor.
Talk to our expert dental teeth whitening solicitors on 0800 634 0285 to tell us how your dental teeth whitening has gone wrong so you can start the dental teeth whitening compensation claims process now.
Having a Tooth out can be Extra Painful
Having a tooth removed is also a very common dental procedure performed regularly in the UK and is not a particularly complicated procedure. Patients have their teeth removed for many reasons from unfixable dental damage to incorrectly aligned wisdom teeth and in most cases the dental extraction is performed without incident.
When dental extraction goes wrong, however, the damage may be severe. Dental extraction negligence can include damaging the ability of a dental patient to chew properly due to the scale of dental damage caused by the dentist’s negligence. There may also be periodic pain in the affected region while, in some cases, the wrong tooth has been removed or sometimes even too many teeth.
If you’re suffering from any of these symptoms of a dental extraction gone wrong, then call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 to discuss how you can start the dental extraction compensation claims process now.
Cosmetic Dental Implant Surgery
When you one of your teeth falls out or is damaged, dental implants can be a popular way to replace the tooth. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth, bridges or dentures and can be inserted for single tooth replacement or complete mouth restorations and reconstructions, often known as dental facelifts.
The dental implant procedure involves the removal of the tooth’s root and the implantation of small metal dental implant screws into the jawbone to create a permanent new root. A natural tooth coloured crown is then placed over the dental implant and attached to it.
When the operation to insert a dental implant doesn’t go as you would have liked, you may have suffered from dental implant negligence indicated by symptoms like the breaking of the dental implant screws leading to permanent jaw damage or peri-implantitis where the gum tissue surrounding the dental implant decays and causes severe pain and disfigurement.
If your dental surgery has gone wrong when undergoing a dental implants procedure then you should contact Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 to start a negligence claim for dental implants compensation.
Root Canal Cosmetic Dentistry
Root canal therapy is performed to repair painful and infected teeth by removing the infected root, internally cleaning the tooth and ending the patient’s toothache. In root canal dental treatment the cosmetic dentist drills a hole in the tooth’s centre to create an entry point to the patient’s root canal system. All the root canals are then cleaned and shaped before being filled to prevent bacteria from re-entering the root canal system. A dental crown may also be required to improve the tooth’s long-term strength.
If your root canal dental treatment has gone wrong, complications indicating a negligent root canal can include a root fracture, perforation of the tooth by the dentist’s instrument, the provision of poor quality crowns. Talk to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 if you think you should start the dental surgery negligence process to make a claim today.
Periodontitis or Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease results from gingivitis or minor gum disease being left untreated for too long and can progress to the loss of teeth when the tissue becomes too damaged to hold them in place.
Fortunately gum disease can be treated effectively if it is caught early by a competent dentist. With cosmetic dentistry, a professional clean and polish may be sufficient to deal with the gum disease problem. A more extensive dental treatment like root planning may be required if the gum disease is more ingrained to remove plaque and tartar from the patient’s periodontal pockets. If the root planning does not completely clear up the gum disease, however, dental surgery may then be required to help build the patient’s gum tissue back up.
Untreated periodontal disease can lead to unnecessary tooth loss, teeth ulcers and permanent holes in your gums so if you’ve been affected by any of these issues, call us today on 0800 634 0285 to discuss how you can start the dental surgery compensation process for gum disease negligence.
Filling in for Dental Restoration Treatment
Dental restoration of plain dental filling is probably the dental operation most familiar to UK patients. The dentist drills the damaged or decaying piece of the tooth to remove it and repairs it with a substance designed to prevent any further decay and protect the remainder of the tooth. The material used for dental fillings ranges from amalgams of metallic material to gold depending on the taste and budget of the patient.
While this is normally a straightforward dental procedure, dental filling negligence may have happened when some of the following indications of dental restoration gone wrong occur: persistent extremely sensitive teeth after the dental operation, dental fillings placed in the wrong teeth by your dentist, failure to clean the dental cavity adequately resulting in infection.
If any of those problems have happened to you, then we can help with your dental filling negligence when you call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 to find out how our dental surgery solicitors can help you claim dental negligence compensation.
