AGGA Dental Device Lawsuit
Unapproved AGGA or FAGGA dental devices cause injuries to thousands
AGGA devices were introduced as non-surgical palate expanders, offering a solution for conditions like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and mild to moderate sleep apnea. Although marketed as a safe dental device, AGGA devices have been linked to a variety of injuries and complications.
Recipients of AGGA devices have reported side effects such as the following:
- Intense mouth pain
- Tooth loss
- Dental damage
- Facial disfigurement
- Gum recession
- Nerve damage
- Bone erosion
These injuries can have a profound impact on one’s quality of life, necessitating additional medical interventions and corrective surgeries to address the harm caused by the device.
