Just like medical doctors, dentists, and oral surgeons have a duty to uphold that standard of care in their specialties. Some types of injuries caused by dental negligence include permanent or temporary nerve and/or structural injuries to the tongue, jaw, chin, and lips, including lingual nerve injury (tongue), inferior alveolar nerve damage (lips, chin and jaw), numbness, loss of taste sensation, and even death. These injuries can be caused by improper removal of impacted wisdom teeth and other forms of negligence in the administration of dental procedures. Dental malpractice may also occur when a dental provider fails to properly diagnose or treat an oral health condition, causing significant injury or death.
