Dental Implants Complications
As with many dental treatments, the success and longevity of a dental implant is reliant on the skill and expertise of the dentist. If undertaken correctly, a dental implant should last 10 – 12 years. They require precision and detailed assessment though. Therefore, unfortunately, patients sometimes do not receive a high enough standard of care, and when this has happened, they may have suffered dental negligence.
Dental implants are fitted in to the jaw as a replacement for missing teeth instead of a bridge or denture, or are used to support a bridge or denture themselves. Complications that may constitute dental negligence regarding the fitting of a dental implant include:
- Failure of the dentist to adequately assess the supporting jawline and determine whether it is healthy enough to support the implant
- Failure to ensure accurate implant positioning, potentially imbedding the implant at the wrong angle
- Nerve Damage
- Damage to the surrounding teeth
- Sinus Cavity penetration
- Loosening of the implant due to a failure of the implant to fuse to the bone
- Failure to advise and implement correct maintenance
If you have suffered unnecessarily as a result of dental treatment for dental implants you may be able to make a claim for Dental Negligence. Contact Us to discuss your situation.

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.

Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
