Dental Implant Injuries

Dental implants are the most successful restorative procedure in dentistry, when performed by a qualified dentist/surgeon trained in implant dentistry. Unfortunately, many dentists who are not properly or adequately trained are performing these procedures, with resulting injuries to patients. These injuries can be mild, in the form of implant failure, to severe, in the form of infections leading to hospitalization and severe bone loss. Dental implants improperly placed can cause permanent nerve injuries or irreplaceable bone loss of the jaws. The standard of care requires three dimensional imaging and evaluation of the patient prior to implant placement in areas of vital anatomy, such as the inferior alveolar nerve and the maxillary sinuses.

Dr. Palmer is the only plaintiff’s attorney in the United States who is board certified in implant dentistry by the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry.

No dental care should result in injury to the patient.

Dental injuries, whether from inadequate doctor or staff training, or negligent care, can result in loss of teeth, loss of bone of the jaws, permanent nerve damage, infection, hospitalization, brain damage and death.
