Oral surgery expert witnesses are knowledgeable in surgical procedures in the medical and dental health care field. Oral surgery consulting may provide beneficial information for court cases involving general dentistry, cosmetic surgery, maxillofacial surgery, dental implants, endodontics, periodontics, or orthodontics, as well as other procedures based in head and neck surgery. Oral surgery litigation may result from medical malpractice, an error made during surgery, unforeseen side effects, neglecting a patient, a failure to properly inform the patient regarding the nature of his or her surgery, prescribing the wrong post-surgery medication, an issue with healthcare insurance, or other unexpected problems occurring before, during, or after surgery.
Oral surgery expert witnesses are often skilled with reconstructive dentistry, which may be a required form of treatment in correcting facial fractures and other forms of facial trauma. Reconstructive surgery may also be used in treating temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ), in addition to other issues requiring cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
Oral surgeon experts are also knowledgeable with such surgical issues as dental implant failure, problems with general and local anesthesia, orofacial pain, or other possible complications resulting from oral surgery. Additional oral surgery procedures include teeth removal, rehabilitative dentistry, and restorative implants.
