Nerve injuries from dental implants and other procedures can cause serious pain and other symptoms, including numb or tingling lips, loss of taste and a numb or tingling chin.
When An Injury Is Caused By Departure From Standard Of Care
Dentists are held to a standard of care. Unfortunately, you may have been injured because a dentist or oral surgeon did not treat you with appropriate care. The main objective of a dental malpractice case is to prove that your injury was the result of a departure from the recognized standard of care.
The defendant’s departure from a recognized standard of care can only be established through the expert testimony of a credible professional in the field — another dentist or oral surgeon. Denver dental malpractice lawyer Thomas J. Tomazin has extensive experience working with forensic dental experts to prove negligence in cases of serious dental malpractice.
Unnecessary Dental Procedures
Some dentists push patients to get unnecessary dental procedures in order to boost their bottom lines. Dentists may coerce patients into getting crowns, implants, fillings and other expensive procedures that result in pain and mounting medical bills. The best way to avoid a needless procedure is to get a second option from another dental expert. If you believe you have been pressured into unnecessary dental work, call our office for help.
