Oral Surgery

Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients like you who have suffered injuries due to medical mistakes made by doctors, nurses, and hospitals. Many of these injuries are very serious, often requiring extensive medical treatment and the need for additional surgeries. When a medical error causes a death, it can give rise to a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit.

There are risks involved in every medical procedure and not all poor results are due to medical malpractice. A lawsuit can only be filed when there is a medical error or mistake that caused your injury. Our experience medical malpractice lawyers will review your medical chart and determine whether your injury was the result of negligent treatment or just a normal risk or complication of your procedure.

Oral Surgery Procedure

Oral surgery is the area of medicine concerned with correcting problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw. It is often referred to as "Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" which combines oral surgery with surgery on the structures of the face, sinuses and neck.

Oral surgeries are commonly performed to remove wisdom teeth, prepare the mouth for dentures, repair jaw problems and perform root canals. Oral surgeons may also perform more advanced procedures as required after trauma or severe disease damages the structures of the mouth.

Risks of Oral Surgery Procedures

The most common risks of an Oral Surgery procedure are:

  • Infection, bleeding, failure to heal
  • Injury to adjacent teeth
  • Numbness of face and/or mouth
  • Fracture of either jaw
  • Opening between mouth and sins or nose
  • Fracture of either jaw
  • Opening between mouth and sinus or nose
  • Tooth fragment in sinus
  • Dry socket
