I had the lower mandible removed and replaced but only found out in March of this year 2018 - surgery was 2014 and post implants were 2015 the post for implants were placed in wrong without an X-ray machine. This may have been ok if a patient only had teeth removed with bone intact but to have the entire bone removed left the bone and gum thin and the bone was fragile which caused the lower mandible to detach from the upper and is twisting and causing pain severe speech problems.
There may be a statute of limitations bar to any claim arising from the facts as posted. But to be sure gather your medical records and consult local counsel for further clarity.
So you have two years from the time you knew (or should have known) and no more than 4 years from the date of the negligent act unless you can prove fraud or material misrepresentation. It does not sound like these facts will rise to the level where you can make the necessary proof to extend beyond the four year period. If that has not run you need to call a local attorney right away.
