Missing teeth can ruin your smile and that’s why so many people are checking into dental implants. This is a great way to replace missing teeth and your new implants will look like real teeth. But this is a complex procedure that should only be performed by trained, experienced dentists.
Unfortunately, many dentists are adding this procedure to their roster of services, yet they’ve never been formally trained in how to perform dental implant surgery. If you happen to be one of their first patients, then any number of things could go wrong including:
Transecting lingual nerve
Injury to gums during extraction or procedure
Dental implants are expensive costing up to $5,000 per tooth. There’s a good chance your dental insurance doesn’t cover this service. This is also a complex procedure where the dentist will drill into your gums, then screw in the implants.
There are a number of things that can go wrong. Patients sometimes report pain or numbness in the jaw or gums. This may be temporary but sometimes the symptoms linger for months or years. You shouldn’t have to suffer if you believe dental malpractice has occurred.
Instead, contact a dental malpractice lawyer for aid. Patients have reported not being able to chew or taste their food for months after the dental implant surgery. If this has happened to you, then you may qualify for financial compensation.
