These days, with the advancement in technology, it is possible for a person with missing tooth to get a replacement. A dental implant is usually fitted into the jaw in place of the missing tooth. However, before the procedure is carried out, it is essential that the dentist carries out the necessary tests to ensure that a dental implant is indeed the best course of treatment. It is essential that the condition of the jaw line where the implant will be fixed is healthy to support the implant.
It is the responsibility of the dentist to ensure that the patient’s mouth is healthy to support the treatment. He also has a responsibility to ensure that the implant is fitted at the right angle.
Whenever a dental procedure is carried out, the dentist must maintain the upmost standards of care. The experience, professionalism and skill of the dentist are vital to ensure that the final outcome is successful.
Apart from ensuring the safety of the patient’s dental health, it is also essential that the implant looks as intended when fitted. There are a variety of complications which can arise due to negligence when fitting a dental implant. Some of these which can give rise to dental implant claims include:
- Sinus cavity penetration
- Damage to the other teeth
- Nerve damage
- Implant fitted at an incorrect angle in the jaw
Even if there is a failure to assess a pre-existing medical condition, the success of the procedure can be greatly hindered.
