She had two dental implants with Dr. Scott on January 27, 2020 for tooth removal and replacement. The suit claims that within days of her surgery, she experienced complications and called Stonebriar Facial and Oral Surgery for severe pain. Pain doctor Moses Scott claims he left his staff and told him to continue his care and combat prescription and over-the-counter medications. She then returned to the dentist’s office within two weeks of her surgery, before the appointment, because the pain was so severe, according to Muse’s attorney Russell Button. Musa claims that he told her that everything was going well, but that she was to be inducted into the third constitution on June 8, 2020.

X-rays related to the problem, five months after his surgery, showed a trephine metal (or small drill) left inside his jaw, and potentially severe pain, the lawsuit alleges. There is a reason.

Ms. Muse was five months old and was forced to live suspiciously, and Scott and Stonebriar facial and oral surgery protocols are designed for safety reasons to avoid carelessly following such mistakes.

The suit states that Dr. Scott said he was “digging the metal pieces into the patient’s jaw without panic,” and likened them to metal bullet fragments left in the patient’s body.

In a response submitted to the court, the doctors said they “generally deny the material allegations contained in the petition of the original petitioner, stating that they are not true in whole or in part” and require “rigorous proof”. Is.

The case is still open in Dallas County, with no information yet on the nearest pending county-level internet site.
