You should consult with an attorney in your area to review your dental care. Base on what you have posted, it may have been a breach in the standard of care. However, only a dentist will be able to determine whether or not there was dental malpractice.
I would be happy to speak to you about your rights in this situation, but certainly would need more information. Generally speaking, dental malpractice requires compliance with medical malpractice procedural rules. As well, there may be very strict time limits that apply to your potential case. Feel free to call my office for a free consultation. If I am not able to help you, j may be able to suggest other qualified attorneys.
Of course, this is not meant as legal advice nor does it establish any professional relationship.
