Dental Errors and Mistakes

Improperly performed dental procedures can have devastating results.

A patient may lose her ability to smile. Another may be unable to eat. An unrecognized and untreated infection following a dental procedure is very painful. Improperly placed dentures can become irritating causing sores and discomfort. Dental implants, if not put in correctly can cause bone loss, infection, and the need for extensive corrective treatment. 

I recently represented a man who had 20 dental implants placed in his mouth that turned out to be a dental implant horror story. I wrote an article that appears here on my website about this nightmare, and also created a short informational video to help you understand how devastating improper dental care can be from an unqualified dentist placing multiple dental implants.

In my client's case, one implant was placed into the patient's sinus without the dentist ever realizing it. The dentist caused a permanent nerve injury during the placement of multiple implants; the implants were not spaced correctly; and to make matters even worse, they were crooked. Unfortunately for my client, the dentist abandoned him as well as other patients, and he had no money to pay for restoration. He literally had no teeth in his mouth for over two years.

I'm pleased to tell you that on the day of jury selection to begin this dental malpractice trial, I was able to successfully settle my client's case for an amount that he felt was very reasonable in light of the suffering that he endured.
