Dental implants have become commonplace and are used by thousands of people every year. While implant surgery is typically considered safe, mistakes can be made which can cause injuries. In one recent case, a woman implant patient claims that she was left with injuries after implant surgery was improperly done. The surgery left her with large gaps between her teeth and pain that required additional care. The woman filed a lawsuit in Cook County against the dentist and A Center for Dental Implants in Oak Brook, Illinois.
Dental implants are often utilized to replace missing or badly damaged teeth. The implant is surgically placed in the jaw where it will then be covered with a tooth and crown. Dental implants look very much like regular teeth and once they are properly placed they are considered permanent. People may get just one implant but they are also utilized instead of partial or full dentures. Dental implants require a special surgical procedure. Typically, all implants can be completed at the same time.
