Nerve Damage After Dental Implant Treatment
If you’ve had dental implant treatment, whether with one tooth or multiple teeth, the good news is that most of these procedures go well and the individual doesn’t experience any issues afterwards. However, in some cases, it can be possible for nerve damage to occur when the procedure is carried out, which can sometimes have serious consequences.
Whilst nerve damage as a result of a dental implant procedure isn’t always caused by your dentist being negligent, if they made mistakes or misjudgements during the treatment then they could be responsible for the injury that you have suffered. If this is what happened to you, you might be eligible to make a claim for compensation due to dental negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions
Symptoms of nerve damage after dental implants
If you experience nerve damage after having a dental implant, or multiple implants, fitted, your exact symptoms may vary and will also depend somewhat on the extent of the damage. Common symptoms of nerve damage after dental implants can include:
- A numbness or loss of sensation in the mouth, gums, jaw, face or neck area
- A burning or pins and needles-type sensation in the mouth, gums, face, jaw or neck
These symptoms can mean that you have problems with chewing or biting, eating and drinking and even issues with your speech. Whilst symptoms of minor nerve damage from a dental implant procedure will usually improve on their own in a few weeks, more severe damage can result in these symptoms lasting for many months, or even permanently. This can have a significant detrimental impact on your daily life.
