Compensation for failures in root canal treatment

Looking after our teeth is one of the most important things that we can do – our teeth are a vital part of the body especially when it comes to digestion and looking after our general well-being. For people who don’t look after their teeth a number of serious problems can occur and perhaps one of the most serious is a root canal operation.

If you do require a root canal operation then it will likely not only be expensive, but it is also quite a serious medical procedure and therefore there are a number of potential problems which can occur. Failures during root canal treatment can leave you with serious dental health issues and can potentially affect the surrounding area – if you find yourself sustaining this type of health issue then you may need to consider a compensation claim.

WHO COULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS FAILURE?

In general a root canal procedure will be carried out by your dentist and if there is a failure during the procedure then this is the person who you will most likely consider a compensation claim against. Dentists are highly trained professionals and in most situations they will perform a number of these operations with no problems, but unfortunately they are only human and as a result mistakes can be made – in this situation you may consider a compensation claim.

WHAT ARE SOME SYMPTOMS AND PROBLEMS THAT CAN OCCUR AS A RESULT?

If there is a problem or failure during your root canal procedure then you could be left with a number of potential health issues and these include:

  • Swelling and soreness around the tooth and gum area
  • Potential damage to surrounding gums and teeth
  • Worsening of existing symptoms
  • Swelling which could damage surrounding tissue
  • The development of infections and other complications
