Indiana Lawyers Helping Victims of Dental Malpractice
Examples of dental malpractice can run the gamut from a dentist’s failure to diagnose or properly treat a patient’s condition to causing injury to a patient as a result of their actions. Dental negligence and malpractice can happen anytime — during a routine cleaning, while filling a cavity, or providing other treatments. The effects of dental malpractice can have a devastating effect on a patient’s quality of life.
Tooth replacement is an important consideration for patients who must have teeth removed. Teeth are necessary for proper chewing and digestion of food as well as speech. Dentures, bridges, and implants are often prescribed to patients who need to have several or all teeth removed. Dental implants are the more costly of tooth replacement options. Generally, an oral surgeon or periodontist will perform the implant surgery by implanting screws into the patient’s jawbone that will anchor the new teeth.
Improper dental implant placement
In a case where an elderly patient was convinced to undergo dental implants to replace the majority of his teeth, the dentist did not anchor the implants into his bone such that almost all of the implants were loose and had to be replaced at significant cost and discomfort to the patient.
