I went to the dentist and told him I wanted him to pull all my teeth and give me full dentures he took a quick look at me and agreed with my request didn’t explain to me any of the side effects that would come from doing this nor did he tell me their were alternatives to doing this which there were because my teeth were some savable & some healthy. I’ve since learned how many options are actually out there. My reasoning behind this was because 10 years prior to that another dentist had told me that I would have to get dentures eventually & should get it out of the way. So when I got a chip in my front tooth for the third time, & had been told on the second fix that they weren’t sure we’d be able to fix the front tooth a 3rd time Along with the fact that my insurance company Medicaid had just started covering full dentures And I wasn’t sure this benefit would last. I thought I might as well just go ahead and do this. I was 36 at the time. My 15 teeth were all white and none were broken like someppl.however the impressions that were done were horrible they don’t fit my mouth at all and my appearance has changed so extensively that it’s causing me all kinds of depression and issues.
Anyone can sue for any reason, but it doesn't mean you're going to win. In your case, it would be a difficult case since you consented to the procedure. You'll probably end up spending thousands and thousands of dollars on the lawsuit and there's a good chance you won't win, so it's probably not worth the risk.
