Dental implants and the danger of dental nerve injury

Posted on December 8, 2014 12:25 pm under Medical Malpractice

Dental implants are used among individuals with missing teeth. By placing the replacement tooth in or on the bone, dental implantation may provide the benefits of improved speech, easy eating, and better self-esteem.

However, dental implants gone wrong are almost always damaging and traumatic. Nerve damage due to a dental implant, for instance, may cause numbness, pain, or a tingling sensation in the gums, chin and lip. In some cases, it may send electric sensations to the affected area. In severe cases, dental nerve injury may cause impaired speech and poor nutrition.

A failed dental implant could have been prevented if the dental professional had not been negligent in providing dental care.
