Dental Malpractice Can Greatly Harm Quality Of Life
Most people accept that moderate pain and discomfort are part of dental and orthodontic treatment. However, no one anticipates suffering severe injury or disfigurement due to negligence by the professionals they trust for these vitally important forms of health care.
If you have suffered a permanent dental injury such as significant nerve injury from a dental procedure or loss of permanent teeth from careless or negligent orthodontic treatment, we will welcome your call at Bencoe & LaCour Law, PC. We have significant experience and success with such dental claims.
Nerve Injuries, Orthodontic Errors And Other Dental Issues
Our legal team’s knowledge and capabilities extend to:
- Nerve injuries affecting the tongue, lips or face – typically associated with negligence during an extraction, implant or other endodontic procedures – which may cause permanent pain or numbness, loss of the sense of taste and other serious consequences
- Injuries due to orthodontic malpractice, including improper care and injuries to children and teens resulting in the loss of multiple teeth if orthodontic braces were not appropriate, or if they were improperly placed and adjusted without a proper treatment plan
Only a small percentage of dental mistakes or misconduct rise to the level of actionable malpractice. As with medical malpractice claims, proving liability for dental or orthodontic malpractice is a complex challenge. It is necessary to prove that the dentist violated an applicable standard of care – and that serious, lasting negative consequences would likely have been prevented had that duty been fulfilled.
