There are times when we all have to go to the dentist. Of course, those regular cleanings are important, but many people wait until they have some authentic dental problems before going in. But that’s what dentists are for. If you have an infected tooth or an impacted wisdom tooth, you need help now. You would never expect to be hurt while in the dentist’s office.
Though some dental procedures are fairly simple, there are others that require special training. For instance, dental implants are very popular these days but not every dentist is trained in the correct way to deliver this service.
In addition, dentists may get busy and not be paying attention. They may not know your medical history. They may simply not be properly trained to perform some services. This can leave patients open to getting dental services that cause unnecessary injury andpain.
The 3 main causes of injury from a dentist are:
Removing wisdom teeth (including impacted wisdom teeth)
If you’ve been injured at the dentist’s office, then you do have a right to be compensated for your pain and suffering. It’s important to document exactly what happened.

Then contact a dental malpractice attorney California right away. Let them know the details of your case.
