Nerve Injury

Have you suffered from a nerve injury after going to a dentist of oral surgeon?

Nerve damage may paralyze facial muscles. This can affect everything from your speech to your smile and the general appearance of your face.

Facial paralysis often causes extreme emotional and mental distress and possible post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This mental and emotional stress can take a toll on personal and family relationships and impair individuals’ ability to earn a living.

The two most common nerve injuries are injuries to the maxillary sinus and to the inferior alveolar nerve. Symptoms of nerve injuries include:

  • Numbness of the lips, chin, cheeks, gums or tongue
  • Difficulty chewing or swallowing
  • Loss of taste
  • Loss of smell
  • Severe pain or burning sensations
  • Drooling
  • Speech impairments
  • Facial disfigurement

Damage from Molar Extraction

Having a molar pulled may seem like a routine dental procedure. However, depending on the tooth, its location and the depth of the roots, an extraction may be beyond the training, skills and experience of your general dentist.

Many things can go wrong during a molar extraction, resulting in injury and the need for corrective surgery. When extracting a tooth, it is imperative that the dentist removes all root material. If root matter is left in the mouth, decay and infection can spread and painful abscesses can result. Other common extraction injuries include:

  • Unnecessary extraction of multiple teeth
  • Pulling the wrong tooth
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Fractures to the jaw
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Improper removal of root and nerve matter
  • Infection and abscess
  • Injuries to the jaw
  • Nerve injuries
  • Dry sockets
  • Trismus, or sore jaw muscles
  • Sinus injuries
