What is dental malpractice?

When a dentist or other dental professional performs a dental procedure in a manner that does not meet the industry standard of care, it can be considered medical malpractice.

To sue a dentist for medical malpractice, you must prove that you suffered an injury or your condition worsened as the result of substandard care. The failure to meet accepted standards of care can include several factors such as:

  • Failing to screen or diagnose mouth cancer
  • Mishandling dental tools
  • Allowing periodontal disease to go untreated
  • Not explaining the risks involved in dental procedures
  • Improperly performing a tooth extraction, including removing the wrong tooth
  • Improperly performed dental restorations
  • Administering anesthesia incorrectly
  • Wrongful death

Tooth extractions account for a significant portion of dental malpractice claims. Several things can go wrong during the procedure, including severed nerves, infections, broken facial bones, and perforations of the sinus membrane.

In some cases, dental malpractice may also include unnecessary dental work.

Economic and non-economic compensation

If your dentist or dental health care professional in Canton is found guilty of dental, medical malpractice, you may be entitled to compensation for physical and financial harm and the impact of your injury on your future wellbeing.

You may also be entitled to non-economic damages for pain and suffering due to emotional trauma or a lack of enjoyment of life.
