Tooth Decay

Tooth decay can cause significant injury to both gum pulp and surrounding teeth and so dental negligence may arise where patients suffer a delay in diagnosis, failure to provide appropriate treatment or errors in management leaving the patient with lasting effects.

Types of Tooth Decay Injuries

Whilst it is the priority of a dentist to find, treat and prevent such infections, their level of care may fall short of the required standard, causing further injury or harm. This may include:

  • Bone loss
  • Extraction of teeth
  • Contracting an infection
  • Surgery to remove the infection
  • Osteomyelitis
  • Loss of teeth
  • And other tooth decay injuries

If you or a loved one has been affected by a dental infection error which has prolonged or exacerbated a dental condition, or has resulted in the death of a loved one, Mistreatment.com may be able to assist.
