Michigan Root Canal Injury Lawyer

When we visit our dentists, we trust them to properly care for our teeth by drawing from their expertise. Although most dentists have the necessary competence and experience to ensure good outcomes, injuries can be severe and life-altering when they occur.

While some injuries are unavoidable, many are caused by negligent care. Root canal injury is a common result of dental malpractice. It is generally caused by the failure of the dentist, oral surgeon, or another dental provider to conform to professional standards.  

If you or a loved one suffered root canal injury due to a mishandled dental surgery or other procedure, contact Sommers Schwartz today at (800) 783-0989 for a free consultation.

Root Canal Injuries 

A root canal is a surgical intervention to remove infected or inflamed tooth pulp. It is often the last resort to save a tooth that might otherwise need to be pulled. The purpose of the procedure is to clean out the inflammation or infection to strengthen and restore the tooth’s health. 

A root canal procedure begins with a local anesthetic injection into the surrounding gums. The dentist then drills a small hole into the tooth and removes the infected pulp. Next, the dentist cleans and disinfects the inside of the tooth before filling the canal with a dental material to substitute for the removed pulp. Finally, the dentist seals the hole and caps the tooth with a permanent crown.

Unfortunately, severe injuries can occur during root canal surgery. These injuries may result from:

  • Root canal and pulp chamber perforations
  • Root canal misdiagnosis
  • Ledge formation in a root canal
  • Inappropriate use of dental instruments

Root canal injuries can lead to other serious complications such as nerve damage, infection, and inflammation. If the tooth becomes infected, the infection can spread throughout the body, causing additional health issues and dangers, such as: 

  • Headaches
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Swelling
  • Heart rate increases
  • Dehydration
  • Increased breathing rate
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
