Gum DiseaseHave you been the victim of a negligent dentist?
We’re often approached by clients who are devastated to discover that they have chronic gum disease despite regular checkups with your NHS dentist. Gum disease can cause halitosis (bad breath), loose teeth and gum abscesses and if not recognised can lead to chronic Periodontitis – where gum tissue and supporting bone are destroyed by infection.
Your NHS dentist has an obligation to assess and identify the early stages of gum disease as part of your NHS ‘band 1 course of treatment’. During your check up they must carry out a full examination of your mouth, teeth as well as your gums and advise of any treatment you may need for gum disease.
If you regularly visit your dentist and feel that your dentist has been negligent in failing to identify and treat your gum disease then call us immediately as you may be eligible to make a claim for dental negligence. Call 0800 122 3130 immediately or request a call back when its convenient for you.
