I go to a dentist for regular check-up I needed deep cleaning I was referred to a periodontics he said that I should have a bone graft surgery I had deep pockets around some teeth and a some bone loss but not enough that needed a bone graft or a implant all that was needed was deep-cleaning a 2nd opinion showed that there was no room for a implant that did not take x-rays proves this with no dental insurance it cost me $2300 all that I wanted was a refund.
I would assume that the question of whether there was a need for the procedure is probably not as clear as you think. However, the cost of litigating this matter would probably be more than it is worth
Many dentists opinions will be different. You would have to prove that the treatment was not up to the standard of care in the field of dentistry. Certainly placing an implant without an xray is improper. Did the implant work? Do you have a restoration on it? Try to contact your local dental society and inquire about peer review.
Morally you should get same, legally the costs of recovering the money will dwarf what you will receive. Confirm with local counsel.
