Dental Nerve Damage

Experienced Columbia Dental Malpractice Lawyer

One of the most serious problems resulting from dentist errors is nerve damage. Nerve damage can be extremely painful and is usually noticeable immediately or soon after a dental procedure. The procedures that can result in this issue are usually beyond a regular dentist’s skill and the general dentist probably should have referred you to an oral surgeon. If your dentist has attempted an operation the resulted in damage to a nerve you should consult with a dental malpractice attorney in Columbia as soon as possible.

Procedures that may result in nerve damage include:

How Are Nerves Damaged?

If you did not begin experiencing nerve pain until after being treated by a dentist, it may be likely that your dental professional made a mistake and damaged a nerve. Sometimes instruments hit a sensitive area, or a dental implant is improperly placed. You’ll notice strange sensations in the area, sometimes loss of taste, and possibly severe numbness and tingling or burning pain. Many clients describe the sensation like a Novocain shot that never wears off or like hitting a funny bone that never stops tingling.

The following nerves are most commonly damaged in dental procedures:

  • Lingual nerve: This is a frequently affected nerve, sometimes occurring after wisdom tooth removal. You will notice strange sensations, pain or numbness in the tongue if it has been damaged.
  • Mental nerve: Damage to this nerve can result in sensory paralysis of the lower lip. Pain from this nerve can be debilitating and severely affect the quality of life.
  • Inferior alveolar nerve: These nerve injuries feel like the interior side of the gums are tingling and painful, but without the impact to the tongue. The pain can feel like an electric shock.
