Orthodontics
Ref. # 48328

A Missouri woman underwent orthodontic treatment. Her appliances were left in for four years, resulting in deterioration to the periodontium. Various oral surgeries and corrective dental and orthodontic care were subsequently required. A medQuest orthodontist reported that the four-year period was excessive and there was a lack of ongoing evaluation. Further negligence included an absence of informed consent.
