Many people do not relish the prospect of dental treatment and restorative work is no exception.

The aim is to improve or restore teeth to a healthy and visually appealing state. If that goes wrong, due to substandard dental work, or a lack of due care, then you may have a claim for dental negligence.

What is a restorative dental procedure?

Restorative dentistry – also referred to as prosthodontic dentistry – is the treatment of diseases of the mouth, teeth and supporting structures.

Restorative dental work includes:

  • Fillings, crowns, veneers and bridges
  • Root canal treatment
  • Tooth restoration, including dental implants

Why make a restorative dentistry negligence claim?

Negligence, or care that is below standard, can result in pain, infection, distress and the need for further dental surgery. In addition to this, you may need to take time off work to recover, as well as have the problems fixed.

Dental negligence compensation could allow you the time you need to recover, while easing the financial worries of time off work. It can help pay for treatment, travel to appointments and loss of wages.
