Infection After Dental Treatment


Very few of us enjoy going to the dentist. For some, the visit conjures up feelings of fear and anxiety but more often than not, a simple check-up is all that is needed.  Sometimes, however, more complex treatments are required in order to resolve a particular issue. The majority of dental treatments are expertly administered day in, day out, across the UK. Naturally, we put our trust in our dentist to recommend the best solution to our problem but sadly, sometimes, things can and do go wrong.

Many dental treatments will inevitably come with some healing time, but what can you do if you develop an infection after dental treatment? It is important to remember that your dentist has a duty of care towards you and if this duty is not met, your dentist’s actions could be deemed negligent.  If you develop an infection following dental treatment, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.

Infections can be caused by your dentist or hygienist not using clean and sterilised gloves, or indeed no gloves at all, during your treatment. They can also develop through the use of unclean dental instruments, whatever they may be, or as the result of an error during treatment, such as your dentist mistakenly cutting the gum. Post-treatment, if you are not given the correct aftercare programme to follow, this could also potentially lead to an infection developing.

Should you feel that you or your loved one have received substandard care from your dentist and you want to discuss your legal options, we can help you.
