colorado- iwent to the dentist on June 4, 2001 to have two cavities filled. the dentist gave me a shot to deaden the pain and then proceeded to drill. the teeth he started drilling on wern't deaden yet and i tried to let him know, but he kept on drilling. his assistant even put some sort of metal object in my mouth to keep it open so the dentist could keep drilling on my teeth. I don't know what the metal object was because my eyes were shut from the pain. after leaving the dentist office, I realized there was a dent on the roof of my mouth, towards the back where the bone almost ends. this "dent" was extremely painful and red, and still is. I had my husband take pictures of this "dent". Do I have a malpractice suit against this dentist?

Good malpractice cases have lots of damages -- beyond inconvenience and some short term pain. Like loss of work, extra large medical bills, some permanent injury, loss of sensation etc.

They also have clear fault to which you did not contribute.

I am not sure if you have either basis for a claim.
