hey desert fox, are you still somewhat involved in dentistry? My dentist fucked up a procedure and now I have a surgical instrument stuck in my mouth forever. Trying to figure out my recourse here.

Imagine going through life happy and healthy for 33 years and then some asshole buries a gauze into your gums.

Not gauze, it's a dental filing instrument.  It's pretty fucking annoying and it's affecting my quality of life.

i was having a root canal performed, and my dentist broke an instrument in the root of the tooth.  Went to an endodontist, the endodontist couldn't remove it.  Went to a dental surgeon, his opinion was to extract the tooth.  I'm going to ask my dentist to cover the cost of extraction and pay for a permanent implant, because there's no reason i should be on the hook for a $10K operation because of medical negligence.

Extract the tooth, get an implant, ask the dentist to pay some or all of the cost.

A tool breaking is something a dentist should be liable for,  its just one of those things that unfortunately happens from time to time and you got unlucky.

Maybe you're making sacrifices to the wrong god, perhaps try a different one. The Greek gods are probably a bit neglected ATMo and might appreciate the worship.

Otherwise its amazing how inept 'medical professionals' can be, and how brazen they can be about making you pay for their mistakes.
I have lots of anecdotes, more than car repairs even, if you're interested.

dilbert's sex change was a disaster due to the surgeon being a drunken sot. he now has gills where his gingerbread man used to be.

The sex change was fine, it was the change back which went awry.

My cat broke a tooth, he could have had a root canal and a cap but he went with an extraction.
Being one of his major fangs it was bonded to his skull so removal was a serious operation.
Now he sometimes gets his upper lip caught on his lower fang and looks a little goofy, he's actually worn away some of the fur.

He went with an extraction, huh? I'm relatively impressed your cat was cognizant enough to read and sign.

A friend of mine paid 2500€, minus some insurance, when he took his dog to the dentist. Think he said 12 teeth were removed.....

Dogs are dumb. Dog probably didn't even know it has teeth missing. It might not even know if it is alive.
