Can I sue my dentist?
I had a root canal in January. Seven months later, that same tooth started hurting again. I went to another dentist to have it evaluated because my dentist's office was closed on Friday. The new dentist took and x-ray and saw that the previous dentist had broken one of his files off in my root and left it there without saying a word. Plus, that part of the root didn't get cleaned out like it should have.

Now, the root is starting to form an abcess and I have to go see an endodontist on Monday to have this fixed, and get another root canal done. This will most certainly max out my insurance for the year, and then some.

Can I sue the original dentist for being negligent and causing me further damage?

Yes, you can sue your dentist but you most likely not win. Last year my brother Ben sued his dentist for making a mistake on removing his wisdom teeth but didn't win. He only lost because the dentist kept on saying you take better care of you teeth.

So you can sue your dentist but you probably won't win unless you get a very good lawyer

Hope this helped

Yup, you sure can. But i don't now for sure because i'm only 13.

Did you give dentist #1 a chance to fix it? Most dentists will fix something that they did or if you would rather go elsewhere maybe he/she can give you some money back.


stepher62924
it really just depends. Some dentist still use the silver points to seal off the canal. If thats the case then the "file" should have been there. Most dentist don't do this anymore. He should have taken an x-ray when he was finished so he would have known it was in there.. I would contact him and find out what he says. Don't threaten a law suit unless u plan on never going back to his office. Do let him know what is going on though, he may offer a partial refund

Yes you can sue him definately. But I would only sue him if he knew it was there. Not if it was an accident. Be kind.


♥ℓσνєѕнυмвσℓ∂т♥
Yes you can sue him, and he deserves to be sued. Dentists try too often to get away with things and not follow the rules. Stick it to him. You are going to need the money, anyway. You really need to see another dentist or an endodontist for a second opinion and have it documented (like a written deposition) from the Dr. that the root canal treatment wasn't completed or it was improperly done, you will need that in court


datonearth
Yes, and you should do it soon.

I would say there is a good possiblity that you can. I would check with a lawyer. Most of them have a free consultation. Good luck.

yes but do it quickly

Yes go and sue the dentist.
If he made a mistake he sould of said.
He should help pay for the damage and he should give you back the money.
You should take some action!!!
