If you need dental reconstruction, trusting the dentist to repair damage to your teeth and gums is the primary goal. When patients are left with unnecessary injuries, the dentist may be liable for dental negligence. There are several ways that dental procedures can go wrong, leaving you in potentially permanent pain and discomfort.
The jaw can become misaligned after a dental procedure to fix teeth or other oral health problems. Crowns that are too large can impact your bite, which causes the position of the jaw to shift. This can affect both the aesthetics and function of the mouth.
Botched dental procedures that cause the jaw to misalign may also result in pain. If you are waking up with pain in your jaw or suffering discomfort when eating, drinking or talking, it could be the result of a previous treatment at the dentist.
Aggressive dentistry can lead to facial fractures around the mouth. These fractures are painful and difficult to repair. You may notice persistent pain long after the expected recovery period from a dental treatment. Identifying fractures is possible through x-ray imaging of the mouth.
Facial fractures can compromise the integrity of the teeth. You may also find it difficult to eat, drink, speak, smile or sleep comfortably. As the injured party, you should not have to carry the cost of having these fractures repaired.
Oral infections can occur after dental treatment if the hygienist or dentist did not properly sterilize tools or practice acceptable hygiene. Serious infections can lead to tooth loss, general health problems and fatalities in some cases. Atlanta citizens who have suffered due to dental negligence can seek consultation with an experienced lawyer.
