How Dental Malpractice Can Ruin Your Diet

Blog submitted by Dane Levy, Attorney of, a provider of legal services for those injured by dental malpractice in California.

As a health-conscious person, it’s likely that you know all of the small details that go into living a healthy lifestyle. It’s not just doing the right exercises; you also have to eat the right things and develop healthy habits. You’ve probably thought about many of these details, but have you considered how important being able to eat and taste the right way is?

Having a lasting dental injury can make it difficult to taste, eat, chew or drink properly. If it hurts to eat, you might have difficulty biting and consuming solid foods. Many solid foods contain essential nutrients for your body, and refraining from eating them can have adverse effects on your diet and nutrition. And when your diet suffers, the rest of your body will suffer as well.

Past dental malpractice victims have suffered from nerve or bone damage, numbness in the mouth and tongue, and misaligned teeth as a result of their dentist’s negligence. All of these issues can contribute to dietary problems in addition to the physical, mental, and economic damages victims experience as a result of botched dental procedures.

If you have sustained injuries as a result of a dental procedure and can prove that your dentist acted carelessly in a way most professionals would not have acted, you may be able to win a dental malpractice lawsuit.
