Inferior Alveolar Nerve Injury from Dental Drill - Medical Illustration, Human Anatomy Drawing
Inferior Alveloar Nerve Injury from Dental Drill
"The decision to use an endosseous dental implant must be based on a careful examination of a carefully-selected patient. Just as systemic disease may make an endosseous implant a less than successful procedure, so too may local factors, such as the amount of available bone into which the implant must be placed.

Most implant manufacturers provide transparent acetate templates with graduated and calibrated markings so that precise measurements of available bone can be made by laying the template over the properly exposed x-ray.  The template incorporates the x-ray's distortion factor so that an accurate working length of implant can be selected.  This must be so because there must be several millimeters of untouched bone beneath the implant and the subjacent inferior alveolar nerve.

Measuring directly from an x-ray with a millimeter ruler results in a dentist thinking he has 15 mm. between the crest of the bone and the nerve and accordingly he places a 13 or 14 mm. implant.  The x-ray is distorted as much as 20% and there must be a few millimeters between the nerve and the implant: a proper measurement will often result in a much shorter implant which is far enough from a vital structure so that permanent injury does not occur."

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"Medical illustrations are essential during trial for any medical malpractice case. The people at MLA have the uncanny ability of creating medical illustrations that simplify the most complex of medical concepts and human anatomy to a lay audience. The exhibits of MLA allow experts to easily describe complex concepts and human anatomy in a manner that could not be done otherwise.

In addition, their custom illustrations show in great detail the extent of injuries suffered and the devastating effects they have had on the client's anatomy. These custom illustration can show, side by side, the body before and after a catastrophic injury. The effect of this juxtaposition is unmatched by any testimony that can be adduced at the time of trial.

Even jurors after trial have commented on the ease with which they grasp medical concepts and anatomy once the MLA exhibits were introduced and used by my experts. Even judges who have "seen it all" are thoroughly impressed by the detail and sophistication of the illustrations.

I would not want to try a case without them."

"I just wanted to let you know that after several days on trial, I settled [my client's] construction accident case for $4.5 million. Immediately after the jury was discharged, I spoke with several jurors who told me that they really appreciated the medical illustrations for their clarity in dealing with [my client's] devastating injuries. They also expressed their gratitude in being able to read from a distance all of the notations without difficulty. Obviously, the boards were visually persuasive. I am certain that this contributed to our successful result."

Michael Gunzburg, Esq.
Attorney at Law.
New York, NY

"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

"[Your staff] was extremely efficient, cooperative and gracious and [their] efforts produced a demonstrative exhibit that we used effectively throughout our trial. The jury verdict of $3,165,000.00 was, in no small measure, due to the impact of the demonstrative evidence. You may be sure that we will call again."
