Chicago Man Sues Dentist for Unnecessary Root Canal

According to WBBM.com, a Chicago man has filed a dental malpractice lawsuit against his dentist after he claims he underwent an unnecessary root canal and extraction. According to the dental malpractice lawsuit, the man visited a doctor complaining of pain in his 20th tooth. The dentist subsequently performed a root canal on the tooth, but the pain came back. He then planned to extract the tooth and replace it with an implant. A year later, the man went back to the dentist with a fracture in the 19th tooth. It was discovered that the source of the man’s pain and the root canal and extraction of the 20th tooth was unnecessary. The two count medical malpractice suit also accuses the doctor of lack of informed consent and seeks $50,000 plus legal costs.
