Bad Crowns & Bridges
Holding Dentists Accountable for Bad Dental Crowns
Before dental crowns or bridge work is done, it is critical that the dentist carefully examines the mouth and jaw to ensure it is ready. Any existing problems should be given proper time to heal, and if new conditions are found, they should be carefully treated before more dental work is done.
Unfortunately, that is not always what happens. Many dentists are in a rush to perform operations so they can get paid. When rushing dentists overlook or cover up tooth or gum problems, the results can be serious.
If you were injured because a dentist put in bad dental crowns or bridge work, I can help. I am Lance Ehrenberg, Esq., and I have more than 30 years of experience representing individuals in dental malpractice throughout New York City.
Tooth Crown Problems
When a set of bridges is put in and falls out, not only is it uncomfortable, it can harm your gums. The bridges may have been masking underlying decay, or they could have been put in before your mouth was ready. Either way, your dental condition is rapidly deteriorating, and may have resulted in loss of several teeth.
Conditions that are overlooked in the roots, bones or gums can all get tremendously worse if they are not properly dealt with or remedied. Bone grafting or implants may be necessary, which is a multi-year process. Had the dental work been carefully examined from the beginning, the additional pain, time and expenses could be avoided.
