We trust our dentists – they are healthcare professionals whose opinions we respect. However, if you’ve had to undergo root canals when they weren’t necessary, or if the procedure has failed and it wasn’t your fault, then you may be entitled to compensation. A failed root canal is far more serious than a failed filling or other dental treatment, and can leave you with a wide range of serious dental health issues.
Just some of these health issues can include:
- Abscess Growth and Infection Around the Tooth.
- Abscess Pressure and Discharge.
- Swelling of the Gums around the Tooth.
- Darkening of the Tooth.
- Crippling Tooth Pain that is Aggravated with Pressure or other Sensation.
- Sinus Congestions.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms after your dental treatment, then it is likely the root canal itself has failed. You need to ensure that this is looked at and treated as quickly as possible to prevent major issues with your dental health.
It can be difficult to assign blame in some situations and this is one of them. When it comes to any major dental operation, there is the risk that the operation will fail due to your own poor dental care. If this is the case, then you are to blame for the failure of the procedure and you can’t realistically claim against your dentist. However, if there is a failure during the procedure, or if a mistake becomes apparent which causes the dental work to fail in the aftermath of the operation, then you will be able to blame the dentist.
In most cases, an experienced dentist will have performed hundreds of these procedures before with no problems. However, even medical professionals are still only human, and it is all too easy for mistakes to be made. In some rare occurrences, the dental equipment used in the procedure has been known to snap inside the tooth. This can be a major setback to the operation, but if the dental expert is careful, they will be able to remove the equipment with no additional damage to your tooth.
For most of the issues, simply retreating the tooth in question should resolve your problems. The dental expert can go back to the tooth, remove the old filling materials and re-fill it to ensure a higher-quality seal. In some cases, root canal surgery may be essential. This involves accessing the infected area through an incision in the gums and bone.
Unfortunately, the chances for successful treatment are the best on the first attempt. That means if you are unlucky enough to suffer a root canal failure the first time, either through medical negligence or your own poor care, the likelihood of success is smaller the second time.
