Rise of Dental Implant Claims

Over recent years the number against dentists for failed dental implants claims has increased significantly.  Figures released by the Dental Defence Union (DDU) showed that 115 cases out 311 settled for an average of £34,000, with one claim settling for over £200,000.  Obviously not all dental implant cases will see settlements as high as this, but the figures do show that when dental work goes wrong the cost of putting it right can be very high.

The most common reason cited for bringing a claim was a complete failure of the treatment with unsatisfactory results being the second most common reason why people consider bringing claims.

The number of claims and settlement figures show that this type of non-essential dental work carries a large amount of risk for both dentists and patients.
