Serious Injuries from Dental Bridge Failures

A bridge is a restoration device used to replace missing teeth. Developing a proper bridge requires an exact fit to the patient’s mouth, thorough evaluation of tooth root structures, and careful and skillful fabrication. Any mistake during this process can result in severe pain and discomfort to patients.

Other additional injuries may be sustained, such as:

Many patients have to spend considerable time and money correcting failed bridgework. If the damage is severe enough, full-mouth reconstruction may be necessary.

Help For Your Compensation Claim

Dental bridge problems not only cause physical pain and suffering, they also place individuals under financial strain. Many people are forced to miss work for corrective procedures and dental insurance may not cover the expenses of reconstructive work. Bad bridge jobs can also cause emotional distress and anxiety. Many people develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) after being injured by dentists.
