How long does the gum disease claims process take?

Every case we take on is different and we pride ourselves on thoroughly assessing the unique circumstances of each and every gum disease claim we pursue- each client deserves a bespoke service and this is something we won’t compromise on. This means that we don’t provide an average timescale as to how long we expect the claims process to take.

However, we guarantee that your solicitor will ensure that your case proceeds efficiently in order to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve as quickly as possible. Your dedicated lawyer will be able to advise you further once you start your claim with us.

Can I claim gum disease compensation?

When caught in its early stages, gum disease can usually be treated effectively. However, when a dentist fails to spot the signs, it can lead to severe complications. It is your dentist’s responsibility to identify any cases of gum disease and advise you on the best course of treatment.

If your dentist has failed to diagnose gum disease, despite you seeing them regularly as a patient, you may be entitled to make a dental negligence compensation claim against them.

What are the risks associated with untreated gum disease?

If left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to loss of teeth, as well as other health risks and irreversible gum damage. Those who have suffered the impact of dental negligence can be left with health problems, particularly those who have developed serious cases of gum disease because of a misdiagnosis.

The impact of untreated gum disease can include:

  • Permanent damage to the jaw and gums
  • Receding gums
  • Gum infections
  • Gum recessions
  • Tooth loss
  • Constant pain or discomfort
  • Loose or wobbly teeth

Is there a time limit for making a gum disease claim?

In the majority of cases, you have three years from the date of your last dental appointment to make a claim for gum disease compensation. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. Speaking to a solicitor as soon as you realise you have suffered an injury will allow you to determine your next steps and whether you are eligible to make a claim.
