Most people are aware that ongoing dental care through regular appointments helps to maintain healthy teeth and gums, but what if your dentist misses something important? We have seen many cases of delayed gum disease diagnosis that have led to long-term complications for the patient. You could be entitled to seek gum disease misdiagnosis compensation if you can show that:
Our team of expert dental negligence solicitors have vast experience in how to pursue a claim for compensation that may make a huge difference to your recovery. Many adults in the UK will have experienced some form of gum disease. If you have suffered a misdiagnosis of gum disease after a visit to your dentist, you can speak to Hampson Hughes about claiming dental negligence compensation.
Some of the expected compensation figures related to dental implant negligence claims in the UK are:

If you have suffered a delayed diagnosis of gum disease, it can affect the tissues and bone that support your teeth and keep them held in place. If this occurs, the effects can be both physical and psychological. Impacts of periodontal disease are unpleasant, with symptoms including:
It is the responsibility of any dentist you visit to provide you with teeth and gum health checks that include a look at your periodontal health. Whenever you visit the dentist, your gum health should be assessed alongside that of your teeth. Regular ‘basic periodontal examinations’ should be performed, which entails using a probe to check the pockets between the tooth and the gum.
Once gum disease is found, it is imperative that the correct course of treatment is put in place to prevent it from developing into something more serious, and permanent. If you have experienced misdiagnosis of gum disease or delayed diagnosis of gum disease, it could lead to further complications and you may be entitled to seek dental negligence compensation as a result.
The complications resulting from a delayed gum disease diagnosis include:
It is vital that gum disease is caught early to prevent the risks associated with further infection, as stated above. If you feel you have suffered delayed diagnosis of gum disease after a visit to your dentist, please seek a second opinion as soon as possible. It can make the difference between retaining teeth or losing teeth it’s the loss of stability rather than infection that causes the tooth loss.
