Negligent Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment involves the removal of the pulp (nerve) of the tooth, and the filling of the root canal thereafter.

Claim for negligent root canal treatment

There are a number of ways in which such treatment may result in a claim for negligent root canal treatment:

  • Failure to carry out pre-operative and post-operative x-rays
  • Failing to fill the root canal to within 1-3 mm of the apex of the root
  • Overfilling the root canal beyond the apex of the root
  • Fracturing a file or reamer and leaving it within the root canal, and failing to inform the patient that this has occurred
  • Allowing the patient to inhale an instrument during the procedure
  • Damaging the inferior dental nerve
  • Perforation of a root canal
  • Damage to the tissues of the mouth with sodium hypochlorite ( a recommended material for disinfecting the root canal)
