If you have been injured following dental work carried out by a dentist or healthcare provider, you may be able to make a dental negligence claim. To be able to claim, there must have been a failure to provide the proper standard care, which resulted in you suffering injuries.

At Truth Legal, we have dental negligence experts who can advise you on your case and help you claim compensation.

Common types of dental negligence:

Wrong tooth extraction

If your dentist pulls out the wrong tooth, or perhaps more teeth than just the problem tooth, you could make a wrong tooth extraction claim.

Root canal negligence

If you have suffered a bad or failed root canal treatment due to the procedure not being performed correctly, this can lead to weakened teeth and potential gum infections. We can help you make a dental negligence claim for root canal treatment.

Dental implant negligence

Many individuals find dental implants are the only option when they have missing teeth. If you have experienced problems following dental implants, this could mean that the procedure was not carried out correctly and you may be able to make a claim.


When a tooth has started to decay, a dental filling may be necessary to prevent further damage to the tooth. However, botched dental fillings can occur when the procedure is not carried out to a satisfactory standard and you may wish to make a claim.

Nerve Damage

If you have suffered nerve damage after dental work, you may be able to make a dental negligence claim. Tooth nerve damage or facial nerve damage are particularly common dental surgery errors which can have long-lasting effects.

Cosmetic Dental Errors

Cosmetic dentistry can cover the fitting of dental implants, braces, crowns, and other procedures such as tooth whitening and straightening. If you were injured through inadequate care, surgical errors, or after the risks were not fully explained, you may have grounds for a claim.
