A woman has denounced a group of 10 dentists after numerous botched implant procedures have left her front teeth in tatters.
The botched dental work allegedly took place over a six year period between 2010 and 2016 and included over 80 separate visits and a bill of more than €12,000.
After many failed treatments, the state of her teeth has led her to be diagnosed with chronic oral candidiasis (Oral Thrush) and severe depression and anxiety.
The denouncement was made after the dentists that were treating the woman informed her that the warranty of treatment has expired and advised her to look elsewhere for any further work.
She took the matter to the Cadiz College of Dentists which later passed it onto the Junta de Andalucia.
“Obvious damage has been caused to the patient by a treatment, apparently, not planned correctly, which has been unjustifiably delayed and without providing the functional and aesthetic objectives to which she aspired when contracting oral rehabilitation with the clinic”, stated the report submitted.
The College of Dentists has urged the two parties to reach a “friendly agreement” but it is likely compensation is to be received by the patient, with an expected amount of roughly €125,000.
