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."

"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"I wanted to take some time out to let you know what a wonderful job you did with the 'collapsed lung/fractured rib' illustrations. They were both detailed and accurate. My medical expert was comfortable working with them and he spent at least an hour explaining to the jury the anatomy of the lungs, the ribs and the injuries depicted in the illustrations. Needless to say, the jury was riveted to the doctor during his testimony.

The jury returned a verdict for $800,000.00 and I'm sure we would not have done so well if not for the visualizations we were able to put forth with your assistance. Lastly, my special thanks to Alice [Senior Medical Illustrator] who stayed late on Friday night and patiently dealt with my last minute revisions."
