Can I sue an oral surgeon for compensation for killing my tooth and or disfiguring my gums?

Question Details: After my oral surgery, to save a tooth, my general dentist discovered that another tooth died in the process. To make matters worst he is trying to convince me that it wasn't anything that the oral surgeon did but I find that very hard to believe. So I know I probably can't start a medical malpractice case but can I sue the oral surgeon to pay for his mistake?
