Modern dentistry is safe and effective, and cosmetic dentistry can produce amazing results. But only if it is done right, and only if the dentist follows the safety rules of his profession.
With more powerful and more invasive techniques like implants and jaw surgery come ever greater risks. Even a simple tooth extraction can wind up causing a fatal infection if the dentist doesn’t do his job.
Dental malpractice can take as many forms as a dentist can be negligent. At Polewski & Associates, our dentist malpractice lawyers have seen cases where dentists have placed implants in our client’s jaw without the training to do so, and where patients wound up in the hospital for a month because a dentist didn’t give an antibiotic. Some of our clients have needed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of dental surgery to fix the damage that a sloppy or unqualified dentist did to their mouth.
We’ve seen patients who had their tongues nearly cut in half by a dental drill, patients where the dentist extracted multiple healthy teeth by mistake, cases where a dentists put implants in their patients' gums instead of their jaws.
All of these cases – every single one – involved a dentist who either didn’t know what he was doing or just plain wasn’t paying attention.
