How can dental implants go wrong?
After a successful procedure, patients will typically experience improved confidence and benefit from being able to eat more easily.
However, some patients are incorrectly advised to receive dental implants despite not being a good candidate for them, because, for example, they have pre-existing gum disease or similar condition. That could lead to the implants ultimately failing and the victim experiencing pain and sometimes even depression as a result.
Other common indications that the surgery has gone wrong are:
- Screws breaking after being tightened excessively, leaving the jaw permanently damaged, the implant unsalvageable and the tooth missing
- Peri-implantitis, a condition where the gum tissue surrounding the operated area decays, causing severe pain and leaving the implant openly visible. This can lead to the loss of the implant
- The failure of the implant to integrate with the patient’s bone, resulting in bleeding, damage to the bone and potential failure of the implant
Dentists' duty of care
Dentists providing implants have a duty of care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their patients, meaning they are liable for any unnecessary harm that befalls their patients as a result of dental implant negligence.
This responsibility includes a duty to manage and account for preventable risk factors, but also to ensure that patients are thoroughly briefed about the treatment process and given information about potential complications, allowing them to give their informed consent about whether this treatment is right for them.
If you feel that your dentist has not fulfilled this duty of care, you may be eligible to make a dental implant compensation claim.
