Milwaukee Dental Malpractice Lawyer – Attorney
At times a person can experiences complications or unsuccessful outcomes following dental treatment. Dental treatment can, unfortunately, be painful procedures and can cause a person to suffer symptoms long after the dental treatment is completed. However, as with claims of medical malpractice — also know as negligence — against a medical doctor, a complication or bad outcome following dental treatment does not automatically mean that a dentist has provided negligent dental treatment or committed dental malpractice. A person can suffer an unfortunate outcome as the result of dental treatment even though the dentist’s treatment was entirely appropriate and the dentist exercised the highest degree of care and skill in treating the patient. There are circumstances where a dentist, orthodontist or endodontist fails to treat his or her patient to the minimum level of professional care required under the law. This can cause a patient to undergo expensive treatment to correct mistakes, and sometimes cause severe permanent injuries. Examples of dental malpractice include negligence in extracting a tooth leading to infection and failing to properly fit crowns or dentures leading to poor occlusions (bites) that results in injury to the jaw joint.
