Sarah Marshall - who is now 21-years-old - underwent the procedure in 1996 at the age of six and professionals at Kirkcaldy's Victoria Hospital decided to take out the teeth as they were getting in the way.
However, they subsequently failed to re-root properly and Ms Marshall had to have them removed permanently three years later, leading her family to take legal action against the Fife Health Board for their negligence.
And a case at the Court of Session in Edinburgh has now ruled in favour of the woman - now a student at Dundee University, an institution with more than 17,000 students - meaning she has been granted a six-figure damages sum for her ordeal.
This sum is comprised of £38,000 for her pain and suffering, £15,300 for dental costs and £8,500 for services.
