A dental patient presented to her dentist and received a dental implant. After the dental procedure, the patient began experiencing severe pain and returned to the dental practice. The dentist removed the patient’s dental implant, but her pain persisted. After consulting with another doctor, the patient was diagnosed with an injury to the mandibular nerve because of the improper dental implant procedure. The dental practice agreed to settle the malpractice lawsuit for $150,000.00.
