The Relationship Between Nutrition and Dental Malpractice

Blog submitted by Dane Levy, Attorney of, a provider of legal services for those injured by dental malpractice in California

Whether we are eating or exercising, our bodies are interconnected, finely tuned structures that benefit from different body parts’ contributions. Your teeth and your digestive system work together as one unit to break down your food and allow your body to absorb its nutrients. Even though your teeth are one small part of the system, they are still an irreplaceable part of the digestive process.

For this reason, the effects of dental malpractice can be destructive to your nutrition. In the past, negligent dentists have caused irreparable harm to their patients, including damage to bones and nerves, crooked teeth, numbness in the mouth and tongue, and difficulty biting. In the worst cases, victims of dental practices may no longer be able to consume solid foods that are essential to a healthy, balanced diet.

Because of this and other damages a patient may experience, dental professionals should be held accountable for their actions. If a botched dental procedure has made it difficult for you to eat, you could be entitled to compensation. You need a good dental malpractice lawyer with the knowledge and experience to help you win your case.
