Orthodontists, like other medical and dental professionals, have a duty to treat patients in accordance with the accepted standard of care in their field. If an orthodontist fails to diagnose or treat a patient as a reasonable professional would under the circumstances, and the patient is injured, the orthodontist has committed malpractice.

Orthodontic malpractice may take place in a number of ways. Root resorption, in which excessive force during treatment causes a reduction in the length of a tooth's root, is a common source of malpractice claims. Others are nerve damage, loss of periodontal ligament support, caries in or decalcification of teeth, soft tissue damage, anchorage loss, and failure to obtain informed consent for treatment.

An orthodontist's negligence may ultimately lead to tooth loss, loss of sensation in the mouth, or other permanent damage. The Fraser Law Firm P.C. works to help victims of orthodontic malpractice recover for their injuries.
