Why had the restoration 'failed', was it not an expected clinical outcome, carious teeth can become irreversibly pulpitic, pulpitic teeth can need endodontic treatment, endodontic treatment can be unsuccessful.
It would be useful to explain why the treating dentist was negligent and why the claim was not rejected.
The point has been missed by focusing on the need for an implant, this case is fundamentally about why patients need fillings.
When did we start guaranteeing 100% success? Why was it not for the patient to pay for the necessary endodontic treatment, subsequent extraction and replacement of the missing tooth. I suppose the patient got the other missing teeth added to the denture for free also!
What is the long term prognosis considering the patients history and compliance surely this needs to be taking into account
the protocols for implant placement clearly show smoking as a non starter
