Sub-Standard Bridge Work
Bridges are normally used to cover the gap left by a missing or extracted tooth. They are frequently performed for cosmetic reasons, to improve the overall appearance of your teeth. Therefore it can be particularly unpleasant if negligent or sub-standard bridge work leads to a cosmetically unpleasant outcome.
Firstly, a bridge should only be considered as an option when the surrounding, and most importantly, supporting, teeth are strong. Not all dentists are competent in this restorative treatment. It is considered negligent if a dentist carries out work beyond their area of expertise or abilities when they should have referred a patient on to a specialist instead.
When you have received sub-standard bridge treatment, you may have experienced negligence if you are suffering sensitivity in opposing teeth that were ground down in preparation for the bridge. Or if it is ill-fitting and therefore gaps or wearing cause damage or exposure of the gums leading to gum disease. Negligence may have occurred if you have been given a poorly constructed, or incorrectly shaped crown.
There are numerous ways that Sub-standard Bridge Work can constitute dental negligence. If you are unsure whether your situation meets the criteria to claim, please Contact Us for a free, no obligation discussion today.
Bridges should last for between 10-12 years: if they last for a considerably shorter length of time then there may have been substandard care.

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.
