Dental Malpractice

What exactly is Dental Malpractice and how do I know if I have sustained an injury as a result of it?

A dental malpractice case arises when a patient suffers a significant injury as a direct result of negligent or sub-standard dental care. Some common examples of dental malpractice are:

  1. Loss of one or more healthy teeth due to improper or sub standard dental treatment.
  2. Nerve Damage caused by negligent extraction of teeth, placement of implants, or even the negligently placed needle for injections of anesthetic.
  3. Crowns or bridges that are either functionally or esthetically sub standard.
  4. Improperly prepared root canals, missed canals, perforated or over filed canals.
  5. Over preparation of teeth for placing fillings or crowns which result in the need for an otherwise unnecessary root canal procedure.
  6. Failure to diagnose periodontal disease and or treat it in a timely manor.
  7. Failure to refer patient to a dental "specialist" such as Oral Surgeon, endodontist, periodontist or prosthodontist when the treatment required was beyond the scope of the general dentists ability, training and skill.
