Dental Mistakes Can Have Long-Term Consequences

Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist's treatment is below the medical standard of care or involves massive errors that could have been avoided. Injuries sustained because of dental misconduct are often devastating and traumatic — involving substantial costs, pain and suffering, and psychological and emotional outcomes.

We understand experiencing a procedure far more invasive than you were told is traumatic, stressful and extremely upsetting.

Maltreatment from a dentist can have lifelong consequences. You deserve to be compensated for your injuries — and the Hardwick Law Office is prepared to represent your case. Contact our firm right away if you know or suspect a problem caused by any dental procedure.

We have experience successfully representing injuries resulting from dental malpractice, including, but not limited to:

  • Nerve injuries or feelings of numbness, tingling, burning with drooling or impaired speech.
  • Failed restorations for crowns, dental implant, veneers, fillings and bridges.
  • Periodontal neglect when a dentist fails to pay adequate attention to your gums.
  • Orthodontic injuries or errors from an incorrect installment of braces or use of Invisalign and clear aligners.
  • Failed root canal therapy involving failure to remove roots, infections and repeat root canals.
  • Failed or unnecessary extractions such as pulling all or too many teeth or not entirely removing a tooth.
  • Surgical errors involving wisdom teeth extractions, gum grafts, operating on the wrong teeth or dental equipment left in the surgical area.
  • Infections from improper pre- or post-operative care.
  • Failure to diagnose or misdiagnosis of serious illness or diseases such as mouth or tongue cancer.
