Visiting the dentist for a routine procedure can turn into a nightmare due to dental malpractice or negligence. You may be able to sue your dentist for dental nerve damage claim if you receive such a treatment.
Dental nerve damage is not always caused by malpractice, but by negligence. A dentist may accidentally hit a nerve while giving a shot or damage a nerve after filling due to negligence. In any case, you can always make a claim for compensation because it was not your fault and a devastating result of your treatment.
Causes of Dental Nerve Damage Claim
The duty of care and responsibility owed by dentists is the same as any other profession. If there is negligence, anything can go wrong, making the dentist responsible. Among the most common causes of dental nerve damage claims are:
- Damage to dental nerve during tooth extraction
- Injury caused to dental nerve from root canal treatment
- Dental implants causing a nerve damage
- Dental nerve damage after tooth fillings
- Nerve damage after wisdom teeth removal, this could be due to the inferior alveolar nerve damage.
- Wisdom tooth extractions
- Temporary filling
- Infected tooth
- Root canal therapy
- Treating teeth
- Attempting to save the tooth
All of the above treatments should not cause long-term pain or suffering, nor should they cause permanent or temporary nerve damage. Accidents caused by medical negligence are easily compensable if you have all the medical records for the treatment received.
Can Dental nerve damage heal?
Most people wonder if a damaged dental nerve will heal or what the symptoms of nerve damage are. Yes, it can heal, but it will take a lot of visits to the dentist, resulting in extra costs and loss of earnings. Please contact our solicitors if you lose sensation in your gums, lose taste, or have difficulty eating or speaking long after a dental procedure.
How much compensation for a dental nerve damage?
