Recently a dentist has had to cough up $9.8 million for a botched wisdom tooth surgery

A dentist who performed a wisdom tooth extraction left behind parts of the tooth in the patient’s periodontal tissue, which left the patient with extensive oral nerve damage, chronic pain, a fractured jaw, memory loss, migraines, fear, anxiety, depression and a permanent loss of taste.

The jury found the dental practitioner guilty and was ordered to pay for the patient’s restorative dental treatments and pain and suffering.

The court found that the patient did not give his informed consent for the operation, and the dentist stopped mid extraction because he was told the tooth was fused to the bone!
