Substandard crown and bridge work a result of dental malpractice

Posted on February 13, 2015 4:25 pm under Medical Malpractice

Dental bridges are designed to restore the beauty of a person’s smile while improving bite and speech. Dental bridges are also recommended to prevent the misalignment of teeth and further mouth infection due to gum exposure.

Usually made up of materials such as porcelain, alloys, and gold, dental bridges are false teeth placed in between anchoring teeth to replace the missing teeth. When poorly done, though, bridges may result in overhanging dental restoration. Overhanging dental restorations occur when the crowns (false teeth) are too bulky or large, and they hang beyond their natural confines. This might then lead to plaque accumulation, infections, and other dental disorders, such as periodontal diseases.

If an overhanging bridge has resulted from dental malpractice in Wisconsin, a lawyer at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® might be able to help you file a case against the negligent dental staff. Call us at (414) 271-0900 to learn about the possibility of taking legal action today.
