A 92-year-old man is claiming compensation after a dental tool negligently fell down his throat and into his stomach.
The man was being fitted with a dental implant when he felt the tool slide down his throat. He was lying back in the dental chair when the dentists asked him if he caught the object. He then responded quickly saying he didn’t catch anything and was unaware of what had just happened.
The incident took place last November but since then, the victim has had to undergo an MRI and two endoscopies in order to remove the tool which was causing him intense pain in his stomach.
The man is currently seeking a significant sum in damages caused by dental negligence.
