Pain & Perception: Reducing nerve injury risks

TDIC identifies nerve injury claims resulting from extraction, endodontic treatment, implant placement and other invasive procedures as rating among the highest in severity and frequency. However, a complaint of paresthesia does not by itself indicate negligent treatment. Miscommunication, unexpected outcomes, failure to fully inform and insufficient documentation can all lead to unfavorable situations.
