Going to the dentist can be a stressful situation for a number of people and while the majority of dental treatments cause no issues, errors can happen and can lead to unnecessary pain and suffering.
Typical dental errors include :
- Poor root canal therapy
- Failed implants
- Substandard fillings and crowns
- Extraction of the wrong teeth
Cosmetically many people seek to improve their appearance by having their teeth bleached or by paying for porcelain veneers. Whilst many dentists offer care of a good standard some sadly do not and as a result patients are left with unnecessary pain and discomfort.
In a recent case BLB acted for a lady who elected to have two of her teeth removed but due to a lack of continuity of care the wrong teeth were extracted. As a consequence she was put to a lot of unnecessary expense seeking remedial treatment elsewhere.
