Periodontal disease treatment and diagnosis errors

It is the responsibility of the professional dentist to take care of all elements concerning your oral health. This may include diseases pertaining to the gums, overall dental hygiene, and bone alignment. If there is a delay or absence of diagnosis, or an error in treatment, further medical complications may follow. In such situations you should consider a dental negligence claim.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease is an infection of the structures around the teeth - specifically the gums, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone. The earliest stage of periodontal disease is gingivitis. As the disease progresses and becomes more severe, all tissues in the oral area can become infected. It presents as an inflammation around the gums; as the gums recede, the teeth become unsupported and this leads to loss of teeth.

What happens if periodontal disease is not treated correctly?

The important factor here is effective diagnosis. If gum disease is not diagnosed and treated promptly then it can escalate into periodontal disease. Maltreatment or delay in diagnosis can lead to an unnecessary progress of the disease and an unnecessary loss of teeth.

When would the Dentist’s professional expertise be in question?

  • The dentist should be aware of your medical history. There would be particular issues if there was failure to pick up risk factors such as diabetes.  
  • The dentist delays or fails to prescribe antibiotics
  • There is a Failure in treating symptoms such as receding and bleeding gums or inflammation
  • Appropriate referral to a hygienist is not made
  • Failure and delay in providing effective treatment
