Suing a Dentist for Negligence

Unable to eat sleep or even think properly because the pain in your teeth and gums is stopping you from doing this? Have you had a recent dental treatment that has left you with nerve damage pain in your mouth? Leaving you with sensitivity, constant pain, altered sensation, pins and needles and or numbness that is felt in your teeth and your gums making you feel very unwell and leaving you feeling very unhappy. The kind of pain that has even taken away the joy of doing everyday things like being unable to eat or drink brush your teeth and most of all kissing the one you love! If this describes you or someone you know and how you are feeling in your life now, do not despair you are not alone.

You put your trust in your dentist, so when you need to go or choose to see the dentist, you expect to feel some temporary slight discomfort as you realise your mouth is such a sensitive place. You can sometimes feel anxious or nervous about visiting your dentist but appreciate their expertise and knowledge in carrying out a duty of care towards you their patient. If your dentist is found to be responsible for causing you unnecessary pain and suffering, then they must be accountable for this.

Nerve damage in the mouth can happen when dental treatment carried out by your dentist, due to their error or imperfection has gone wrong. Leaving you in pain and suffering instead of looking and feeling your best. These are just a few examples that can be the cause of nerve damage pain:

  • Root canal treatment.
  • Deep fillings
  • Mandibular nerve damage resulting from wisdom teeth extraction.
  • Mandibular nerve damage following a dental implant procedure.
  • A local anesthetic
  • Tooth Extraction.

Almost all of these dental procedures if done incorrectly can result in nerve damage.

For example, when wisdom teeth have been extracted, and the dentist has failed to protect the lingual nerve which is subsequently damaged. Or if after you have had dental implant placements, and the dentist has caused injury to the oral branches which result in trigeminal nerve damage.

Mandibular blocks are performed using an injection of a local anesthetic & is required when needing dental treatment. However, they need to be skilfully performed so as not to cause any nerve injury. Pain or numbness felt in the jaw after a dental procedure can be a sign of dental nerve damage, and would need investigating, whatever your symptoms, after having any dental treatment, if it is still in a three-year period something can be done. Even if you cannot remember or are not sure of the appointment date or time or what procedure was carried out, it can still be investigated.
