Missing teeth can be a real issue for most people. Though it’s sometimes possible to address this with partial dentures, the best solution to date is dental implants. They are expensive, but give you the look and feel of real teeth. You can eat with them and feel good about smiling and talking.
In many cases, everything goes as planned throughout the dental implant procedure. Occasionally, patients do report problems. This can result from an inexperienced dentist or careless errors in the way the procedure was completed. Some patients are given too much anesthesia. Sometimes, the dentist drills too deeply into the gums causing nerve damage.
Nerve damage in the mouth and gums is difficult to treat and is often an ongoing condition that reduces your ability to enjoy your life. Simple things like eating certain foods can become a problem. When your ability to live your life is impaired, you should be able to get compensation.
At Dentalmal.com, we’ve worked with many victims of dental malpractice. In one recent case, the dentist severed a nerve with a surgical tool while performing the dental implant procedure on a patient. The patient experienced numbness in the lower area of the mouth and had continual pain. We settled with the dentist’s legal team and never had to take this case to court.
