Periodontal / Gum Disease Claim


Gum disease claims can happen when a dentist fails to diagnose that there are signs of gum disease. You may have heard of some people talking about periodontal disease claims. Periodontal disease is the medical term for gum disease, accordingly all of these types of claim fall into the gum disease category.

Gum disease claims can happen when:

  • Dentists fail to spot the early signs of gum disease which causes a delay in receiving treatment
  • If allowed to progress gum disease can cause damage to surrounding teeth and tissue
  • The condition can become chronic requiring invasive dental treatment such as root canal
  • Damage to the jaw bone
  • Tooth loss
  • Failing to advise a patient how to treat and prevent early gum disease
