How to make a dental implant claim

Many individuals in the UK each year now undergo dental implant procedures. Most of these dental treatments are performed to the required standard and without unnecessary pain or damage, but there are cases where there is a dental implant failure due to the negligence of a dental professional. You may be able to bring a dental implant claim if you can demonstrate that:

  • you suffered pain, injury and/or damage beyond the expected level for a dental implant, or
  • there was an implant failure as a result of poorly performed procedure, and
  • the problem/s can be shown to be due to the negligence of a dental professional

More information on building a successful dental implant claim can be found in the drop-down boxes further down the page.

  • How do I know if I have a dental implant claim?

    In the event that you require a dental implant, whether under the supervision of the NHS or a private dental practice, you would understandably expect that the procedure will be performed skilfully and safely. Many different dental surgeries are accompanied by a level of pain for a short time after treatment but receiving negligent dental treatment will often cause continued pain or ongoing damage, in this case dental implant failure.

    Should the action or inaction of a dental professional during your dental implant surgery not meet the reasonable standard which all dentists are expected to maintain, causing you to suffer dental implant failure, you may have cause to make a dental implant compensation claim. Common issues related to dental implant negligence include:

    • Surgical error leading to lasting damage
    • Substandard position of the dental implant
    • Nerve injury
    • Implant failure

    Should you believe that the dental treatment provided to you during your dental implant procedure was below an expected standard then, you should get in touch with our dental negligence team to discuss your case in more detail. We have advised many people across the UK who have suffered dental implant negligence but were unsure if the dental care they received was negligent.

    We offer all clients a free consultation, allowing you to discuss the details of your dental surgery and be provided with expert advice from one of our dental negligence solicitors. We can also take you through your legal options with regards to any dental negligence that you may have suffered. For more information, you can also visit our main Dental Negligence page.

  • What evidence is needed for a dental implant claim?

    As experts in dental negligence claims, Hampson Hughes are well equipped to advise our clients on the evidence required for their claim, as well as assisting with the gathering of such evidence on behalf of clients.

    In such a claim there is a burden of proof on the Claimant to give evidence of both a clear level of injury suffered and/or dental implant failure, as well as showing that these effects were due to dental negligence. This often requires the presentation of specific evidence, so we ask clients to retain as much documentation as they can, while assuring them not to worry as we can help them to obtain any additional evidence required in support of their dental implant claim. Some of the most useful evidence types include:

    Dental Records: any dental treatment you receive will be detailed in your dental records. If you suffer dental implant failure, this should also be logged. With client consent, we are able to consult their medical records to identify any possible dental implant negligence.

    Independent Dental Expert: with the complicated medical and legal factors at play in a dental negligence claim, it is important to have expert opinion of a respected dental professional, commenting on the treatment provided to you and specifically whether there has been any dental implant negligence. Hampson Hughes will arrange such an assessment, at a time and location that is convenient to each client.

    Relevant Dental Journals: in some situations, we will access accredited dental journals in order to evidence expected levels of care and the ways in which your dental implant treatment did not meet these levels.

  • Are there time limits on a dental implant compensation claim?

    Whenever an individual in the UK makes a dental implant negligence claim, they are subject to the standard time limits for any medical or dental negligence claim. At present, these limits are:

    • three years from the day the dental negligence occurred
    • in some cases, this can be three years from the date you became aware of the negligence
    • three years from a patient’s 18th birthday if the negligence occurred before the age of 18 (before they reach 18, a suitable adult can be permitted to bring a claim on a minor’s behalf)
  • How much does a dental implant claim cost?

    We understand the many individuals and families around the UK are unsure of the potential legal costs of making a negligence claim. With this in mind, Hampson Hughes, help each and every client we represent to find the funding option that best safeguards their financial interests.

    We provide representation to most of our clients on No Win, No Fee Claim terms.

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
