Dental Malpractice with Implants
There are a range of different complications that can arise following a negligent or incorrect administered dental implant procedure. Some of the most common complications that have occurred as a result of dental malpractice include:
- Damage to surrounding teeth when placing the implant
- Nerve damage
- Incorrect placement of the implant post or embedding the post at an incorrect angle
- Penetration of the sinus cavity, often due to poor planning
- Post-surgery infection, due to lack of sterility of equipment or inadequate hygiene by the professional
The Dentist Drilled Too Deep
One of the most common forms of dental malpractice occurs during a tooth filling. These occur frequently and should be routine procedures, but carelessness could result in drilling too deep. This can result in intense pain if they hit a nerve and can even cause permanent nerve damage. A root canal is another common dental procedure where a dentist can potentially drill too deep. Again, if this happens, a doctor may leave permanent nerve damage if negligently performed. In some more severe cases, it can also lead to permanent chin or lip damage and even partial paralysis.
