Like all other medical professionals, members of the dental profession including dentists, dental assistants, and dental surgeons are required to provide acceptable care that does not cause any harm to their patients. When negligence of any kind results in some kind of injury, patients can end up with long-lasting conditions far beyond their original dental concerns.
Any poor, inappropriate, or negligent performance during procedures such as root canals and dental implants, tooth extraction damage to the lingual or other critical nerves, extraction of the wrong tooth, and puncturing of the sinus cavity during dental procedures are just a few examples of injuries that could lead to complications such as infections, permanent nerve damage, and even strokes.
Anytime a patient sustains these or other injuries due to dental negligence, they have the right to file a dental malpractice lawsuit. Success with these cases requires the services of medical lawyers and professionals with a thorough knowledge of dentistry and the injuries that can occur during dental procedures.
