Whilst damage to the nerves in the mouth or face after dental surgery is uncommon, sometimes dental professionals might not provide the standards of care that they should, and you may be injured as a result. At the Dental Law Partnership, we’re here to help anyone to pursue claims involving severe nerve damage after dental surgery or other dental procedures. If you have experienced nerve damage that is permanent or long-lasting, and you feel that your dentist was negligence in your care, then you may be able to claim compensation as a result. Contact the Dental Law Partnership today to discuss your individual case and find out what you could be entitled to.
Nerve damage as a result of dental surgery or other dental treatments can have a significant impact on everyday activities such as reducing your ability to talk and chew. Nerve damage after dental work can occur for a number of different reasons, but some of the most common causes of damage to the nerves can include errors by dental professionals when providing root canal treatment, carrying out implant procedures, or tooth extractions.
Although these all seem like fairly straightforward procedures, if you have suffered severe nerve damage as a result of dental negligence, you may want to make a compensation claim. If your claim is successful, the compensation awarded could pay for further treatment required and also give you a sense that justice has been done for what happened to you.
If the nerve damage after dental work has left you with severe issues that are likely to affect you for the long term or even permanently, you are likely to be eligible to claim, whether your treatment was done under the NHS or privately. We can determine whether you’re likely to achieve a compensation award, based on your individual circumstances and the severity of the injury that you have suffered.

If you are experiencing any of the symptoms that are mentioned above and believe them to have been caused as a result of negligence from your dentist, then you may be entitled to compensation. To discuss your situation with one of our expert team, call today
