Dental Implant Malpractice Lawyer in Columbia

Legal Assistance for Dental Implant Failure

Dental implants are a widely favored means of tooth replacement. Though more expensive than a dental bridge, this option has gained popularity due to the success rate of the procedure and avoiding the need to compromise otherwise healthy adjacent teeth. Despite the relative frequency of the surgical implant process, errors can still occur. A failed dental implant is most likely the result of an inexperienced or ill-prepared oral surgeon. At The Law Offices of Fred B. Goldberg, our Columbia dental implant malpractice lawyer has taken on a number of these cases. His familiarity with both law and dentistry is an invaluable asset in the field of dental malpractice lawsuits.

Indicators of a Failed Implant

The recovery period for a dental implant is long and some discomfort should be expected, which can sometimes make it difficult to tell if the procedure was poorly performed. That being said, there should not be any intense pain or signs of infection after an implant has been placed.

Dental implant failures can result in:

  • Infection: If your dentist did not properly clean your mouth before surgery or use sterile tools then you could experience an infection. Swelling in the gums, or an aching in the jaw can indicate an infection. These are serious issues and should be treated immediately.
  • Nerve damage: Sometimes dentists place the implant too close to the nerve, resulting in constant pain and numbness in various parts of the face. Nerve damage is almost always the result of a dentist’s mistake.
  • Broken implant: Advances in technology have created powerful teeth replacements. If your dental implant breaks, feels soft, or cracks, your dentist may have used outdated, inefficient materials or methods.
