  • Working Abroad – if your accident happened while you were working abroad.
  • Defective Work Equipment – if your injury was caused by equipment that had a manufacturing defect.

Cosmetic dentistry is normally done to improve the physical features of a patient’s teeth. Patients can opt for a crown or brace to create the ideal smile. However, sometimes these procedures can cause harsh damage and soreness if the crowns or braces aren’t fitted properly.

If this has happened to you then do not hesitate to contact us today to speak to one of our experts.

A diagnosis needs to be made as soon as possible when it comes to oral cancer. If you have visited your dentist with ulcers, lumps, or red and white patches in the mouth and weren’t diagnosed efficiently or referred for assessment, this could be a huge risk to your health. A dentist should be qualified to see the signs of oral cancer and carry out assessments properly.

If you have suffered a delay in oral cancer diagnosis, contact our expert team today for advice or to begin your claim.

Nerve injuries occur after faults during oral surgery. The most common mistakes take place during a tooth extraction treatment.

If you have suffered nerve injury at hands of your dental healthcare professional, then get in contact with Claims24 for support and advice on making a claim

Alternatively known as gingivitis and gum disease, if periodontal disease isn’t treated with intense care immediately it could result in major pain leaving you with unpleasant symptoms such as bleeding inflammatory gums.
