Dental implants can be a boon for many people, restoring function and improving appearance. For others, however, complications from dental implant procedures can cause a variety of serious injuries. Negligently performed dental implant procedures are a form of dental malpractice, and can lead to lost or unrestorable implants, nerve damage, pain, fractured jaws, damage to sinuses, and post-operative infections which can lead to death.
There are many ways in which a dentist can commit malpractice. He or she may fail to adequately inform the patient of the risks of the procedure or to do sufficient treatment planning; fail to assess whether the patient has enough bone to support implants; negligently place an implant where a nerve is located; fail to take reasonable measures to prevent infection, and more. Negligent placement of dental implants can also lead to the damage and loss of natural teeth.
No one should suffer serious or permanent injury due to a dental professional's negligence in a dental implant procedure. Like all areas of medicine, dentistry has acceptable standards of care. When a professional's conduct does not meet that standard, malpractice has occurred.
