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.

Get expert advice while earning C.E. credits and a 5% Professional Liability premium discount for two years.

After course completion, you will better understand how to:

  • Institute protocols for communicating when multiple dentists are involved in treating a patient to improve continuity of care.
  • Recognize the importance of complete and appropriate documentation.
  • Communicate unexpected treatment outcome with the patient and know when to refer.
  • Understand that informed consent is a process, not a form.
