Most people dread any kind of dental work, yet the pain usually subsides within a few days. But sometimes the pain continues or worsens, or a person develops a bad infection or other serious complication. It can have a profound effect on daily life, with little relief from medications or sleep. The only remedy may be further surgery, which brings more risks and anxiety.

A painful experience or even an unsuccessful root canal is not necessarily malpractice. Sometimes, the tooth is simply decayed or compromised before the dentist even begins. The legal criteria for dental malpractice is serious and lasting injury caused by an error in judgment or other deviation from standard practices.
We can explore your possible lawsuit for scenarios of dentist error that happened to you or a loved one such as:
- Cracking or extracting a healthy tooth
- Instruments breaking off in the tooth or jaw
- Damage to the jawbone or nerves
- Facial disfigurement
- Nerve damage to the tongue or lips
- Infection in the jaw bone
- Sepsis (blood infection)
- Anesthesia error (brain damage or cardiac arrest)
