Dentists are medical professionals just like doctors. As a medical professional their duty is to maintain the oral health of their clients. When dentists fail to uphold their duty to provide the best possible care and cause harm then they can be liable for medical malpractice.

One of the most common types of dental malpractice cases involves root canals. A root canal is a treatment that is done by a dentist to repair and save a damaged or infected tooth versus removing the tooth completely.

Some of the common injuries sustained during a root canal may be:

  • Infection
  • Sinus or nerve damage or perforation
  • Dental instruments left in the canal
  • Air embolism

Signs that you may have a complication from a root canal

If you recently received a root canal from your local dentist and are experiencing any of the issues below, then you might have a failed root canal:

  • Prolonged discomfort after the procedure
  • Swelling around the tooth area
  • Darkening of the tooth
  • Abscess discharge from the tooth
