One of the most common injuries that are found within dental surgery error is that of tooth nerve damage or facial nerve damage. It only takes a relatively minor mistake from your dentist to cause long-term pain and suffering or loss of sensation. Sometimes people are unsure if they can claim dental nerve compensation.
Below you will see a few examples of dental procedures that could result in dental nerve damage if performed incorrectly. These include:
The dental nerve is a crucial part of our teeth. The sensory neurones carry signals from receptors up through the spinal cord to the brain. The sensory receptors in the nerve can sense any changes in the environment, and when stimulated, they send electrical impulses to the brain. If you have suffered tooth nerve damage it could have a long-term impact on your teeth, gums and mouth, so it is important that you seek redress by way of remedial treatment and compensation for your pain, suffering and losses.
The common forms of dental nerve damage include; the lingual nerve, the inferior alveolar nerve, and the mental nerve and the trigeminal nerve. Damage to these nerves can have impacts ranging from a change in taste perception, impair speech, cause pain and/or numbness in the lips, gums and/or chin, or in the more serious cases, cause sensory paralysis in the lower lip and extreme pain. In some cases, the damage can sadly be permanent.
There could be several reasons why an error has been made during dental treatment. It may be a simple mistake, or oversight, however in some cases it may lack of due care an attention, poor technique or insufficient training. Dental Practitioners should have the requisite experience and judgment to ensure that we are afforded the standard of care to be expected.
Dental surgery error can occur because the treatment has fallen short of this standard. You may know immediately that there is a problem, as you are having dental surgery performed. In some cases, it might take a while to become apparent. These are some of the symptoms that you should be aware of that could indicate you have suffered nerve damage:
