Periodontics expert witnesses have expertise in treatment of diseases that affect the gums and overall structure of one’s teeth. Periodontist experts are knowledgeable in several facets of dentistry because of the many ways periodontology pertains to the treatment and care of teeth in relation to the patient’s health. Periodontists might be required for litigation for issues such as personal injuries involving gums, medical malpractice, a misdiagnosis, prescribing the wrong form of medication, negligence of patients, an error made during surgery, or other unforeseen issues.
Periodontics expert witnesses have experience in dentistry with gum disease, dental implants and how to treat dental implant failure, bone grafting, oral hygiene, plaque, halitosis, gingivitis, oral pathology, prosthodontics (such as bridges, dentures, or crowns), dental surgery, and other issues related to gum or teeth disease and dental materials regarding treatment and dental surgery. Like other forms of surgical procedures, there may also be problems in the patient’s reaction to anesthesiology, which can lead to possible lawsuits. Periodontics expert witnesses might also be skilled in other areas of dentistry, including crown and bridge, MVAs, temporomandibular join disorder (TMJ), among teeth-related sports injuries, among various other issues related to dental health.
There may also be court cases involving health insurance as related to dental procedures and treatment, as well as issues over risk management and quality assurance.
