How Much Compensation For Damage To Teeth?
There are many ways in which teeth can be damaged, leading to a high number of dental personal injury claims. Claim amounts vary so the question of how much compensation for damage to teeth does not have a straightforward answer.
Tooth pain can be extremely uncomfortable particularly if the pain is connected to nerve trouble.
A programme of treatment is often required to correct tooth damage. Unfortunately, the cost of dental care can be very high. A dental claim might also coincide with other personal injuries such as a fractured jaw.
