Dental Malpractice

Visiting the dentist is an activity that few people would call “fun.”? In fact, many people even fear going to the dentist, remembering the tools, the scraping, and the pain of previous visits. However, proper dental hygiene is imperative in order to ensure overall health, so people overcome their fears and head to the dentist anyway, expecting their dentist to have their safety and well-being in mind.

Unfortunately, some dental professionals fail to adhere to a reasonable standard of care with their patients, causing them to suffer from infections, injuries, and other medical mistakes. If you or a loved one has been forced to endure pain and suffering because of the negligent care of a dentist or other dental professional, you may be entitled to legal compensation for your losses.

Common Dentist Mistakes

Despite the extensive education and training required to become a dentist, dental hygienist, or other dental professional, some still fail to uphold reasonable standards and force their patients to suffer as a result. Common injuries resulting from negligent dental care include:

  • Infections in the gums, teeth, or jaw.
  • Injuries to nerves in the lips, mouth, tongue, jaw, or chin.
  • A loss of sensation in the mouth or on the tongue.
  • Hypersensitivity in a tooth.

In addition, many patients suffer because of other dental errors, including:

  • Unnecessary extraction of teeth
  • Errors in surgery
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Failure to diagnose or treat cancers, diseases, or other medical conditions
  • Treatment beyond informed consent

No matter if your injuries are the direct result of negligent care by a dental worker, faulty tools, or a dental mistake, you should not have to suffer because of the mistakes of a highly-trained medical professional.
