“You're never fully dressed without a smile,“ as the old song goes, but for people who are injured by dental malpractice in Portland, Oregon or the surrounding areas, smiles may be difficult to come by. Although, in general, dental work has become less invasive and painful than it was in the past, many people still dread going to the dentist. Fear of pain is a primary reason to avoid dental visits; when dental malpractice occurs, that fear is often more than justified.
Not every bad experience in a dentist's office constitutes dental malpractice. Dental malpractice is defined as a dentist or dental assistant providing treatment that falls below a certain acceptable level of care. Like most other medical malpractice, dental malpractice is a type of negligence. It typically falls into one of two categories:
- Nerve Injury: negligently severing or otherwise injuring nerves during a procedure including the lingual nerve, inferior aveolar nerve, mental nerve and buccal nerve.
- Dental Implants: improper placement of dental implants leading to serious pain and possibly permanent injury.
