    Negligence / Failure to Treat Bisphosphinate induced necrosis of the jaw. The patient, a cancer survivor taking Zometa had a toothache. Before a root amputation procedure, the dentist should have consulted the patient’s oncologist and suggested a drug holiday. But the dentist went ahead with the surgery, which did not heal. As the infection grew it took months before the dentist referred the patient to an oral surgeon. Eventually, the patient had to undergo a jaw resection and lost a large section of his jaw bone.

    Over-Preparation of Crowns The patient went to her general dentist to have two teeth straightened. It should have been done by Invisalign or some other tray-based orthodontics. Instead, the dentist placed 8 crowns on the patient’s upper teeth. When the shade and size did not match the lowers, the dentist talked the patient into placing crowns on 8 of her lower teeth. In a short time, several of the teeth needed root canals due to over-preparation of the crowns.
