Dental Malpractice Ruins Healthy Diets

Blog submitted by Dane Levy, Attorney of, a provider of legal services for those injured by dental malpractice in California

We use our teeth so much during our everyday meals that we tend to take them for granted. The ability to eat and enjoy healthy food can disappear if you become a victim of dental malpractice. Dental negligence may be momentary, but its effects can be permanent.

In the past, dental negligence has caused malpractice incidents such as nerve injuries, infections, tooth damage, and misapplied fillings, crowns, and bridges. These injuries can lead to pain, numbness, and difficulty chewing and eating. As a result of this, patients may not be able to fully chew and digest solid foods that are part of a balanced diet. In the worst cases, weight loss and malnutrition can accompany the strong chronic pain and emotional distress that dental malpractice inflicts on its victims.

If you are a California resident and your dentist’s negligence has led to permanent, life-affecting injuries, you deserve to be compensated for damages. You’ll need to find a good dental malpractice attorney in California to help you prove the necessary points to establish dental malpractice. These include that your dentist violated the dental community’s accepted standard of care, that they owed you a duty of care, and that they are directly responsible for your injuries.
