If you experienced an injury during a tooth extraction, you have rights. Contact The Law Office of Paul R. Wiesenfeld to learn how we may be able to help you.

Located in Rockville, Maryland, Mr. Wiesenfeld has more than 40 years of experience helping individuals in Maryland obtain compensation for temporary or permanent injuries incurred during molar extractions.

Botched Procedures Have Painful Consequences

Many things can go wrong during a molar extraction, resulting in the need for corrective surgery. When extracting a tooth, it is important that the dentist removes all roots. If root matter is left behind, decay and infection can spread and painful abscesses can result.

Other common extraction injuries include:

Additionally, many young adults need to have wisdom teeth removed. This procedure is better handled by an oral surgeon, yet some general dentists assure their patients that they can handle the extraction. Unfortunately, most dentists do not have the training and experience to effectively perform wisdom tooth removal, which often results in damage to the patient.
