Dental malpractice is the issue Mr. Gittleman sees most often at his firm. It is important each dentist he defends understands what constitutes malpractice.
Dental malpractice takes many forms, including: failing to chart or note cancer or cysts, signs of gum disease; providing faulty veneers, crowns or bridges; injuring nerves; dropping instruments or teeth in the lungs or stomach; forcing instruments or chemicals through the tooth; cutting or burning tongue, gums, lips or cheeks; injurious implant technique, during RCT perforating through the tooth; leaving retained instruments in surgical area; braces causing teeth loss or jaw joint dysfunctions; anesthesia misuse; excessive bleeding causing death, plus many other substandard actions injuring patients, including topics discussed below.
Dentists must practice according to current standards of care. When the standard has not been met, a malpractice claim may result. Once a doctor agrees to offer treatment, he or she becomes obligated to provide reasonable care. For a patient to win a malpractice case against the doctor, it must be demonstrated the dentist breached the standard of care and, the patient suffered injury. The patient must also prove negligence by the dentist caused the injury. A patient's dissatisfaction with treatment results is not grounds for malpractice.
Patient's have responsibility to maintain daily oral hygiene, receive timely cleanings, and follow recommendations and instructions to prevent disease.
