- Severe root damage
- Root resorption

- Tooth decay
Failing to set your teeth in the proper position can result in infection, decay and cause your teeth to wear down at an increased rate. These situations are serious. Consult with a knowledgeable dental malpractice attorney to discuss your options today.
Lacking Informed Consent
If your orthodontist has conducted any procedure on you without obtaining your consent, they are clearly out of line and should be held responsible for their actions. Some orthodontists also fail to properly inform their patients of all the risks involved and fail to answer all the questions their patients may have. If you feel you were not properly informed on a procedure that your orthodontist negligently performed on you, we can help you recover payment for the damages you have incurred.
