Dental Malpractice Lawyers

Dental health matters as much as any other area of health with respect to a person’s ability to enjoy their life.  It is because of us that all of us attend Dental specialists, whether it be a dentist, orthodontist, endodontist, periodontist, or prosthodontist. We rely on these specialists to keep our teeth and mouths healthy and put our trust in them to do so.  Unfortunately, there are many instances where negligence can occur in dentistry when the standard of care expected of the dentist is not met. This can occur in a number of ways, whether it’s dentist performing procedures that should be done by specialists, improper treatment or diagnoses, unnecessary extractions, improper use of anesthesia or improper dental management. A mistake does not have to be made by the dentist themselves, it can be done by dental hygienists or other support staff.

Dental Negligence can result in a number of significant issues, including:

  • Loss of Teeth
  • Chipped or Broken Teeth
  • Nerve Damage
  • Bone Damage
  • Corrective Surgery
  • Loss of Sensation
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Temporomandibular joint injury (TMJ)
  • Unnecessary Extractions
  • Complications from improper use of anesthesia
