Naomi Todd acted for a 50 year old woman who received £25,000 following the substandard fitting of a dental implant.

During the insertion of the first pilot drill, the dentist caused the woman acute pain. The dentist reassured the woman that nothing untoward had occurred and continued with the procedure. The pain was caused by direct trauma of the inferior alveolar nerve by the pilot drill.

The woman suffered permanent damage to her left inferior alveolar nerve, which resulted in the feeling in her lower lip and chin not returning.
