Wisdom Teeth Compensation Claims
Wisdom teeth are the last to come through during a person’s late teens or early twenties. They are known for causing many problems as by the time the come in there isn’t always sufficient space for them. In many cases, they partially come through resulting in severe discomfort and occasionally pain.
Although, there are many ways to treat problems related to wisdom teeth, much can’t be done to prevent them from occurring. It’s all up to genetics and the state of your existing teeth at the time they come through.
Even though wisdom tooth procedures are rather straightforward, complications can sometimes occur, resulting in unnecessary suffering.
Depending on the severity of the problem, you may be required to undergo further treatments. In certain cases, however, the damage could be too severe to fix.
Wisdom Teeth – Common Issues
Wisdom teeth are known for causing a range of dental problems that can vary in severity. Whilst some are quite small and rather easy to fix, others are more serious and require invasive treatments.
Tooth removal is one of the most common treatments for wisdom tooth related problems. It involves the affected tooth, or teeth, getting extracted from your jaw to eliminate the cause of discomfort.
Depending on the severity of your problem, the process may require local anaesthetic, and occasionally even stiches.
Swelling and discomfort are to be expected for at least a few days following the procedure; however, after the healing process you should be fine.
If for any reason some time has passed and you are still experiencing discomfort, pain or swelling, you might have been a victim of dental negligence.
What Can Go Wrong?
There are various problems that can occur as a result of dental negligence during wisdom tooth treatments. One of the most common problems to occur is nerve damage. It can cause temporary or permanent numbness in the gums, lips, tongue or even chin. In certain cases, the damage is irreversible, meaning you could permanently lose feeling in parts of your mouth and lower face.
Some less severe problems include tooth damage and infection. In certain cases, especially if the procedure is invasive, the empty tooth socket may develop an infection. Also, adjacent teeth may occasionally become damaged, requiring you to undergo further treatment.
It’s impossible to prevent wisdom teeth from developing problems; however, dental negligence can be avoided.
If you have been a victim of dental negligence during a wisdom tooth procedure, you may be entitled to compensation.
How Much Compensation Am I Entitled To?
If you have suffered due to dental negligence, you are likely entitled to compensation. The amount you can expect to receive can vary and is impossible to predict without knowing all the details surrounding your case.
It all depends on the severity of the problems you have been left with and any treatments that you may need to undergo to fix the damage.
If you have suffered permanent damage that’s irreversible, you will likely be entitled to more. If, on the other hand, the damage you have suffered is less severe, you should expect a little less.
