Periodontal disease (periodontitis) is an infection or inflammation of the gums (gingivitis). If this goes untreated or there is a delay in the treatment or diagnosis, then this can be the cause of the periodontitis.
One of the causes of periodontal disease (gum disease) to spread can be that a dentist has failed to diagnose periodontitis or the dentist has failed to refer the patient to a periodontist / dental hygienist, at the early stages.
Due to this failure by the dentist, this can result in the periodontal disease spreading to the more advanced stages and which can cause irreversible injury to the patient and the loss of teeth. Patients who have suffered from negligence by a dentist can look into making a periodontal claim for negligence against the dentist.

Extremely happy with the outcome of my Personal Injury Claim and can only thank Paul McCarthy and his team at EAD Solicitors and also Tim Trotman my barrister arranged by EAD, for all their work and efforts on my behalf.
