Gum Disease Claims

If you have suffered following negligent treatment of your gum disease, our expert lawyers at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors can help you to make a claim for compensation.

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can arise from untreated gingivitis and you may be eligible to receive compensation if your dentist failed to recognise the condition or provide you with adequate care.

As one of the first legal practice set up in England and Wales to help people in this specialist area of the law, you can rest assured that we are experts in recovering compensation for victims of dental negligence. To date, we have successfully secured more than £4 million for our clients.

So, if you have been let down by a dentist, which resulted in physical or psychological pain and suffering, our specialist team of dental negligence lawyers is here to help you.

Led by partner Russell Sutton, we operate on a no win no fee basis, meaning that you will not incur any upfront costs at all.



Talk to us today on 0800 634 0285, or complete the quick contact form on this page to request a call back at a time that is convenient to you. We are ready to help you start your dental negligence claim for gum disease without any delay.

How long will the claims process take?

Every case is different and we pride ourselves on thoroughly assessing the unique circumstances of each and every claim we take on - every client deserves a bespoke service and this is something we don’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 solicitors 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.

What are the signs of negligent dental care for my gum disease?

If you visit your dentist as a patient regularly and they fail to spot the signs of gum disease, or take the appropriate action early enough to prevent your gingivitis developing into periodontitis, you may be able to claim for gum disease compensation.

Untreated periodontal disease can irreversibly affect the bone that holds your teeth in your jaw. This can lead to:

  • Permanent damage to the jaw
  • Ulcers and permanent holes in the gums
  • Gum recession
  • Extreme discomfort
  • Gum infections
  • Pain
  • Loose teeth
  • Tooth loss

How can we help?

If you have suffered an impact on your quality of life as a result of dental negligence, then you may be entitled to compensation and should consider making a legal claim.

Compensation can help to transform the lives of those who have been left with physical and psychological pain following inadequate treatment of gum disease. By making a claim, you can also help to prevent more patients from suffering.
