Dental Implant Compensation
Although dental implants are growing increasingly popular, they require a lot of planning and the procedure of getting them installed is extremely invasive. A lot can go wrong, especially if your dentist doesn’t know what he’s doing, which is why making sure that you do plenty of research prior to agreeing to anything can greatly minimise the risks of problems occurring.
Since dental implants are quite costly, if you’re going to invest money in them you want things to go as smoothly as possible. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case.
If you believe you have been a victim of dental negligence during a dental implant procedure, you could be entitled to compensation, depending on the severity of your case and the factors surrounding it.
Dental Implants Explained
The process of getting dental implants installed involves quite a lot of different processes. It doesn’t happen overnight and is a commitment that you must be prepared to undertake if you are serious about them.
Before the first stage of the procedure can even commence, your dentist should spend a considerable amount of time preparing you for the process. This will typically involve a medical health check to ensure you are eligible for the procedure, as well as an examination of your teeth to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.
You should always ensure that your dentist has experience with dental implants, as the procedure is very invasive and requires a lot of expertise in order for things to go smoothly.
The first stage of the procedure involves drilling a hole in the jawbone to make space for the implant to go in. Once inserted, the implant will fuse with the jawbone making it possible for your dentist to fit you with the crowns.
Although, it may not seem like a lot, the entire process is quite time consuming and can take a few weeks in total. Whilst your jawbone heals the crowns cannot be fitted so you must wait a considerable period of time for the implants to fuse with the bone.
If done right, the implants should last you a lifetime, whereas the crowns should ideally be replaced every 10 to 12 years, depending on how well you take care of them.
Dental Implants Claims
Although, in most cases where correct procedures are followed the patient shouldn’t encounter any problems during the healing process, there are occasionally instances of issues occurring due to dental negligence.
If your dentist doesn’t have the level of experience required, or simply doesn’t follow the correct procedures, and as result you are left with implants that aren’t what you expected or are causing you pain and suffering, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
Since the procedure of getting dental implants installed is rather time consuming and costly, the amount of compensation you can expect to receive is typically higher compared to any other type of dental negligence.
How much you actually receive can vary, depending on the severity of your case and the factors surrounding it. It’s impossible to predict how much you can expect your claim to be worth without knowing all the details surrounding your case.
