Dental Implant Failure
Dental Negligence Attorney Serving Maryland
Dental implants are very specific dental procedures that require the skills
and expertise. When general dentists attempt to create and install dental
implants, dental malpractice can result, causing injury to unsuspecting patients.
Helping Maximize Your Compensation
After an implant injury or implant failure, many patients are forced to
undergo multiple corrective procedures. Each procedure costs money and
requires patients to take time off from work. You should not be stuck
paying to fix your dentist's mistakes.
Mr. Wiesenfeld can work closely with you to develop a legal strategy to
help get you compensation for the following:
- The cost of corrective surgeries
- Lost wages
- Physical pain
- Emotional distress
Common Dental Implant Issues
Developing a dental implant is a complex process involving extensive medical
skill. A mistake at any stage of the procedure, from pre-planning to implantation,
can seriously injure patients.
Using the wrong type of implant can cause instability in the jaw, leading
to tooth and jaw pain, trouble chewing, temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
disorders, tinnitus, and headaches. A misplaced dental implant or placing
the implant at the wrong angle can also cause injury. Implant surgery
errors and other mistakes made during the process can cause nerve damage
to the maxillary sinus and to the inferior alveolar nerve.
Mini dental implants, for example, can also be a source of injury and infections when not properly
installed by a general DDS.
Implants that are too large may trap bacteria, or bites may not align causing
TMJ disorders, grinding, and tinnitus. When crowns are set too high, it
may be impossible to floss, and unsealed margins can allow bacteria to
access the tooth, nerves and gums, resulting in eventual decay, infection
