Today, it was the fourth time I've had major dental work done, because my dentist messed up my root canal. After almost a dozen needles, three missed work days, over $1,000, and 2 broken tools, I only have a tiny, barely-successful filling to show for it. FML

#11- While I agree, cases against dentists/dental practices are almost never won. It's not like medical malpractice, which still are fairly difficult to cases to win even when it's obvious that the doctor/care provider was at fault. It's almost impossible to prove there was malpractice in dentistry, but if OP has the money to spare knowing they'll likely lose then they should go for it. It's awful that it's like that! It shouldn't be.

You shouldn't pay for any of the extra work they did to fix a bad filling. Your life sucks op, hopefully they opted to give you some pain killers for at home as well. I've been there , it sucks.

If you know and trust your dentist then you shouldn't have anything to worry about. It sounds like the OP has a really lousy dentist and should consider getting a new one.

he couldn't leave. Once it was messed up other dentists wouldn't take him because it is a huge liability. he has to complete the work and then he can get a better dentist
