Infection & Abscesses After a Dental Procedure
Dental Negligence Attorneys in Maryland
When dentists overstep their training or act negligently or recklessly
while treating their patients, injuries can occur. One of the most common
types of dental injuries occurs when procedures are not properly performed
and bacteria is allowed to access the tooth, its roots or surrounding
nerves, resulting in infection and painful abscesses.
Located in Rockville, MD, The Law Office of Paul R. Wiesenfeld represents
clients throughout Maryland who have suffered dental infections.

Serious Physical & Financial Hardship
Faulty root canals, improperly extracted teeth, or fillings that are too
deep can result in infection and abscesses. A broken or chipped tooth
can also open a path for bacteria. When dentists allow bacteria to invade
the teeth or gums, an infection or abscess can result, causing excruciating
Osteomyelitis is one of the most series of these injections, which can seat itself in
the jaw and even require surgery to properly treat.
A dentist's failure to properly extract all tooth decay can also result
in infections. When decay is left untreated, it often spreads and infects
surrounding mouth, gum, and bone tissue and grows into the nerves of the teeth.
Common symptoms of a tooth infection or abscess include:
- Continuous and severe toothaches
- Severe sensitivity to hot and cold
- Upset stomach
- Swollen glands
- Swelling of the mouth, jaw and neck
When infections and abscesses occur, root canals and other expensive and
painful procedures may be necessary to remove decay, stop infection, and
treat abscesses. Mental and emotional stress, embarrassment and physical
pain can take a toll on personal relations and negatively impact your
ability to earn a living.
