What Are the Signs That My tooth extraction Has Gone Wrong?

While a dental extraction is a fairly simple procedure, there can be complications if it is carried out improperly by your dentist.

The consequences of negligent dental extraction can include the following:

  • Nerve damage, resulting in a loss of dental mobility or sensation. This damage may prevent the victim from experiencing proper function across their face, from the eyes to the mouth. Damage could also be permanent, with some patients unable to properly chew due to dental damage, along with periodic pain in the affected region
  • The development of an oroantral fistula when the upper teeth are operated on. This is a bridge between the dental surgery’s location and the sinus, which may require further surgery
  • Removal of the wrong tooth
  • Wrongful removal of too many teeth
  • “Dry socket” – a dull, aching sensation in the gum or jaw
  • Infected gum tissue
  • Excessive scarring
  • Harmful bacteria entering the bloodstream, causing severe infection
  • Excessive discharge, swelling and redness from the infected area
  • An adverse reaction to the anaesthetic
  • Excessive bleeding
