Dental Claims

Personal Injury Lawyers for Dental Malpractice Claims serving Toronto

Dental visits are an essential part of maintaining our oral and physical health. We (begrudgingly) visit the dentist for regular checkups and cleanings, and we visit dental specialists such as orthodontists, periodontists, or endodontists when necessary.

Just like medical doctors and medical specialists, dentists and dental specialists owe a duty of care to their patients to cause no harm and to properly diagnose conditions and diseases. Common dental problems include:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum (periodontal) disease
  • Oral cancer
  • Mouth sores
  • Tooth erosion
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Chipped/broken teeth
  • Unattractive smiles
  • Impacted teeth
  • Exposed tooth root
  • Missing teeth

Answering Your Questions About Dental Malpractice

If a dental practitioner has been negligent in his or her treatment of your condition or he or she fails to properly diagnose or treat your oral condition, you may have the right to receive compensation for your injuries. Dental malpractice may include:

  • Failure to inform you of treatment options
  • Negligent or improper diagnosis
  • Nerve damage
  • Faulty procedures and restorations
  • Use of faulty materials or equipment
  • Surgical errors
  • Lip, tongue, and jaw injuries
  • Unnecessary extractions
  • Improper administration of anesthesia
  • Improper sterilization of dental equipment resulting in viral and bacterial infections
