Nerve Damage After Root Canal Treatment
The majority of root canal procedures are carried out without any issues and the individual involved doesn’t experience any associated problems. However, in some cases, you may experience nerve damage afterwards. This isn’t always caused by the negligence of your dentist, but it might be the result of mistakes being made during the procedure. If this happened to you, you might be able to make a compensation claim.

Frequently Asked Questions
Symptoms of nerve damage after root canal treatment
Some of the symptoms that you may experience if you have suffered nerve damage after having a root canal procedure include:
- Tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, face, jaw or neck
- Loss of feeling or numbness in the mouth, face, jaw or neck, which can cause issues with chewing or speaking
Minor nerve damage will usually get better on its own, given a few weeks. However, more serious nerve damage may result in symptoms taking many months to improve or can even be permanent in some cases.
It might be the case that you have experienced nerve damage after a root canal procedure because your dentist made a mistake or failed in their duty of care to you. If this has left you with pain and discomfort or means that your quality of life has been affected in the long term or permanently, you may be able to claim for compensation.
