Is Dental Negligence Common?
July 31, 2018
Considering the fact that thousands of dental procedures are carried out each day in the UK, cases of dental negligence are surprisingly rare. Historically, fewer than 10,000 cases of dental negligence are recorded each year. However, this figure has begun to rise in recent years. This is primarily due to the fact that more people are seeking dental care, and there are more medical experts operating within the dental care sector.
Dental negligence case studies show that the growth in popularity of cosmetic dentistry has also contributed to the rising number of dental negligence claims being made. This is, of course, to be expected. Cosmetic dental procedures are often extremely intrusive and can require major reconstruction of the teeth, jaw bone and gums. Therefore, the likelihood of a mistake being made which could lead to a serious injury is far higher than that of merely corrective and preventative dentistry procedures.
