If You’ve Been Injured Due to Dental Malpractice, Contact Portland Dental Malpractice Attorney Mark J. Leeds
Studies and surveys continue to show that one of the biggest fears Americans have collectively is the fear of going to the dentist. At this time, it has become mostly an irrational fear since modern dentistry has rendered most dental procedures relatively pain-free. However, if you become a victim of dental malpractice, you could end up with far more serious problems and pain than what led you to the dentist in the first place.
Some of the most serious dental malpractice claims are related to undiagnosed or misdiagnosed oral cancer, misdiagnosis of a dental x-ray, swallowed or otherwise retained dental equipment, dental implant failures, lingual nerve damage, trigeminal nerve damage, facial nerve damage, TMJ caused by dental trauma (excessive force), failure to prescribe antibiotics before a procedure (applicable in certain cases), acquired transmitted diseases (hepatitis, HIV), or any other harm or injury caused by a dental professional.
Dental Negligence Can Cause Serious, Permanent Problems. Have an Oregon Dental Malpractice Lawyer Evaluate Your Situation
Mark is primarily concerned with dental malpractice that involves lingual nerve damage and trigeminal nerve damage. Lingual nerve injury, most commonly caused during the process of extracting a wisdom tooth, is one of the most frequent dental injuries that eventually leads to a dental malpractice claim. Sufferers of lingual nerve injury often experience painful sensations in the tongue, including numbness, tingling, pain, burning, or electric shock-like sensations; loss of taste; speech impairment and drooling. Trigeminal nerve injury symptoms are varied, but the constant is that the pain is severe. The quality of pain may be described as migraine-like, stabbing, burning, or as an unrelenting pain that is piercing, or boring, in nature. Many victims of trigeminal nerve injury say that the pain, which can manifest in the eyes, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, or jaw, is so sensitive that something as light as a breeze can trigger severe pain. Trigeminal nerve injury is usually caused during the root canal procedure.
If you are suffering from these symptoms after a root canal or wisdom tooth extraction, it wouldn’t be a stretch to consider that dental malpractice has occurred. Consult with Portland dental malpractice attorney Mark J. Leeds to discuss your concerns. Mark has the experience and the expertise to provide the legal counsel and representation needed should a dental malpractice suit be feasible.
