Full Mouth Reconstruction Dental Negligence Injuries
Restoring the function and aesthetics of your smile can involve a combination of dental procedures. This can be required due to an accident, ongoing dental issues or loss of teeth. Patients that undergo full mouth reconstruction often have several procedures completed over a few visits with their dentist. Unfortunately, in some situations, dental negligence can occur, causing injuries to the patient that could have been avoided.
Each full mouth reconstruction is different, depending on the specific needs and desires of the patient. “Full mouth” refers to procedures that will impact all the teeth in one way or another. Procedures can include extractions, dental crowns, orthodontics, dental implants, dentures, bone grafting, root canals, inlays/onlays and any other treatments to restore function and improve appearance of the teeth. Some treatments can be invasive, requiring anesthesia.
Possible Injuries from Full Mouth Reconstruction
Most full mouth reconstruction procedures will involve some sort of oral surgery. This can mean heavy sedation or general anesthesia for the patient. While there are always risks for any type of surgery, if the proper preparation and techniques are not used, unnecessary injuries can occur. Possible injuries that can occur during full mouth reconstruction from negligence include:
- Bone fractures
- Anoxic brain injury
- Permanent tooth loss
- Nerve damage
When the promise of a newly reconstructed smile ends with ongoing health issues and loss of oral function due to negligence, you may have a case of dental malpractice. Those injured during a full mouth construction by poorly performed procedures can pursue compensation to pay for medical costs, lost wages and other expenses.
