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 depending on the severity of the damage, 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 nerve trouble is causing you pain.

Tooth damage often requires a programme of treatment to correct the issue. 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.

Compensation Amounts For Teeth Damage

Like other personal injury claims, the compensation amount you are entitled to will depend on the extent of your injury. Certain teeth also warrant higher amounts of compensation. For instance, if one of your front teeth has been damaged, you will receive more compensation than you would for your back teeth. If you have found it difficult to eat because of your condition, your potential compensation is likely to be higher.

Level of injury

Potential compensation

Tooth pain on a chronic level where pain has lasted for a number of years and the condition of the teeth has significantly deteriorated. E.g. if you have an abscess that has been left untreated.  £35,790
Loss of the front teeth (or serious damage) £8,200 – £10,710
Serious damage to the two front teeth £4,080 – £7,160
Serious damage of one of the front teeth £2,070 – £3,710
Serious damage to or loss of the back teeth £1,020 – £1,600 per tooth.
