Dental Injury Case Studies
Negligent Dental Treatment/Removal of Teeth/ Defective Bridgework/Gaps in teeth
Mr T received negligent/substandard dental treatment from his dentist, orthodontist and hospital orthodontic department following a skateboarding accident when his front teeth were irreparably damaged when he was 10 years old. Mr T underwent various unsuccessful treatments including removal of teeth, bridgework, repairs, false teeth and leaving the client with embarrassing gaps in his teeth and difficulties in biting and chewing food.
He suffered painful and traumatic ineffective dental procedures that were probably unnecessary and inappropriate whilst suffering socially, emotionally and educationally as a result of the unsightly appearance of his mouth and significant time absent from school and college to undergo the various treatments and subsequently to recover from same. He underwent numerous x-rays and also unnecessary and ineffective surgery in hospital.
He has been left with continuing problems with his teeth and gums which may result in further and continuing treatment and constant maintenance but which will never achieve the results that he was promised at the outset. The negligent treatment, unnecessary removal of teeth, defective bridgework and resulting gaps in his teeth were all actionable and Garratts secured compensation for Mr T in the sum of £15,000.
