The majority of dentists are caring, friendly, knowledgeable, and perform their duties with admirable skill to promote patient health. Unfortunately, dental errors happen, and when they do, you need a dental malpractice attorney to take care of you.

Some common instances of dental malpractice include:

  • Failure to refer to the correct specialist
  • Medication errors
  • Utilization of faulty materials or products
  • Failing to diagnose or remedy an infection
  • Failing to perform a thorough dental exam
  • Tooth loss resulting from a faulty restoration
  • Failed dental procedures, such as faulty root canals, crowns, implants, and veneers
  • Incorrect use of dental anesthesia

The injuries that result from dental malpractice are often long-lasting and painful.  Some of these injuries include the following:

  • Loss of taste
  • Oral infection
  • Loss of teeth
  • Chronic pain and discomfort
  • Numbness and nerve damage in the face, including the lips, jaw, and tongue
