Compensation for extraction of the wrong tooth

Dental care is something that everyone needs to take seriously and in many cases this involves regularly brushing and flossing our teeth in addition to rinsing regularly with mouthwash. In most situations everyone does this on a common basis, but unfortunately this is not always the case and if you fail to appropriately take care of your dental hygiene then you could find yourself in a situation where you might have to undergo dental surgery.

One of the most common forms of dental surgery is the extraction of a tooth and if your dental health has got to the stage where this needs to happen then this can often be a quite quick and easy process. Unfortunately in some situations errors can be made and this could result in the wrong tooth being extracted, if this is the case then you may consider a compensation claim.
