Dental bridges are used to fill the gap created by missing teeth, often following extraction.
Gaps between teeth if left can have adverse effects, such as adding greater strain to adjacent teeth, and tooth decay and gum disease due to food particles being left between the gap.
Patients also undergo bridge procedures to improve appearance, restore the ability to chew, restore smile, and prevent remaining teeth from moving out of alignment
If the outcome of your bridge procedure is cosmetically and aesthetically poor, you may have a claim.
The skill, care, and method used by a Dentist are paramount to the success of a procedure. If standards are not maintained by the Dentist, this can lead to unnecessary pain and suffering. There is also a high possibility that the desired aesthetic look may not be achieved. Such outcomes could also cost you lots of money to remedy.
The most common complications arising from this type of procedure are:
There are inherent risks to undergoing all dental procedures, but the risks should be fully explained to you by the dental professional prior to any procedure going ahead. If the Dentist has failed to explain these risks, they may be negligent.
If you consider that you have been let down, suffered injury, and emotional distress as a result of a failed and negligent extraction procedure, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
