Botched Root Canal Claims

Help from a Dental Malpractice Attorney in Columbia

Many people find root canals to be intimidating. The procedure has a reputation for being particularly painful and uncomfortable. In general, however, the operation should not result in any unmanageable discomfort. If you are experiencing severe pain after a root canal that seems beyond normal, then an error or botched root canal may have occurred. In some cases, the patient may be entitled to compensation for any damages suffered.

At The Law Offices of Fred B. Goldberg, our professional Columbia dental malpractice lawyer can review your case and provide insight regarding our legal options. Call (410) 844-5221 to set up a time to speak with him.

Signs of a Botched Root Canal

While mild discomfort is typical for a short period after a root canal, extreme pain is not. If you’re experiencing intense, or even mild pain a few days after the procedure, then you may want to investigate whether or not something went wrong with the operation. You may be familiar with the symptoms, as chances are they will be similar to those you had prior to the root canal.

Common indicators of a botched root canal include:

  • Pain when consuming hot food or drinks
  • Swelling and inflammation in gums
  • Extreme pain when chewing
  • Numbness and tingling along your gum line
  • Infection

Root Canal Malpractice

Failed root canals are one of the most common types of dental malpractice cases. Depending on the type of root canal malpractice performed, a botched root canal can lead to extreme pain, infections, gum and bone damage, or even the complete loss of a patient's tooth.

Types of root canal malpractice include:

  • Performing a root canal when it is not needed
  • Drilling too deeply into the tooth
  • Failing to properly clean the inside of a tooth
  • Improperly re-filling the tooth
  • Fitting an improperly sized crown

How You Can Fix It

Unfortunately, the only way to recover from a bad root canal is with more dental surgery, which you may understandably have reservations about. When individuals undergo botched procedures performed by “professionals,” it can affect their quality of life and confidence in the dental health system. Seeking out an experienced dental malpractice attorney in Columbia can prevent this from happening to someone else and possibly assist your recovery.

Attorney Fred Goldberg was raised by a dentist and dental assistant and spent his youth working in their office. His familiarity with the terminology and procedures give him an edge in the field—which is why our firm handles over 70% of Maryland’s dental malpractice cases.
