With visions of sugarplums come dangers of dental malpractice

After the holiday festivities end and the pursuit of resolutions begins to pick up momentum in your mind, you may add a visit to the dentist for a routine cleaning to your agenda. As you many have experienced, a visit to the dentist can end up being anything but routine. Dentists are highly trained to specific skills and sometimes the work required in a patient's mouth may require even greater and more specific skill, perhaps by either a medical doctor or an oral surgeon.

Many factors contribute to cavities and tooth decay, excessive sweets and poor oral hygiene being only a couple. Some oral conditions are simply hereditary. No matter the cause, your first stop is usually a dentist if you are looking for a treatment.

Unfortunately, not all dentists readily refer patients away from their practice when the problem is outside of their training and field of expertise. This can result in a number of maladies, such as improper treatment of periodontal infections and as horrific as drilling inadvertently into a sinus cavity.

If you or someone you love has suffered an injury at the hands of a dentist or other medical professional, you don't have to suffer alone or in silence. There are options available to pursue a claim for compensation for the pain and suffering you've endured and additional compensation for what can be costly work to repair or relieve that pain after a medical error. This is where a South Carolina dental malpractice attorney may be of great help. Perhaps the more these incidents are brought to light; the less likely they will be to continue happening.
