Nerve Damage after Dental Work
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.
