Periodontal Disease is a condition which affects the gums and it can progress to permanently destroy the bone that supports teeth. Teeth can then become loose and eventually they may have to be extracted.

Delayed Diagnosis of Periodontal Disease

To minimise the damage caused, it is essential that Periodontal Disease is diagnosed as early as possible. Therefore, it is important that your dentist is always looking out for the signs of this condition. However, some dentists fail to diagnose Periodontal Disease or only diagnose it at a very late stage, by which time serious damage may have already taken place.

Inadequate Treatment of Periodontal Disease

Once Periodontal Disease has been diagnosed it is important that a patient receives appropriate treatment. The treatment should also be carefully monitored so that it can be changed if it is not controlling the disease. In some cases, referral for specialist treatment may be required.

Unfortunately, some dentists provide inadequate treatment or do not recognise when a referral to a specialist is needed. In these cases the Periodontal Disease remains active, threatening the future of a patient’s teeth.
