The client attended her general dental practitioner between 1998 and 2005. Thereafter she changed dental practices and between January 2005 and October 2007 she received treatment from another Dentist.

We commissioned expert dental evidence indicating that the two defendant dentists failed to diagnose, treat or monitor the client’s periodontal disease, or to refer her for specialist advice and as a result, her periodontal disease was allowed to progress with loss of bone attachment for her teeth, causing her to lose three teeth with the likelihood that she will lose all of her remaining upper teeth.

Our evidence from a Specialist in Periodontics advised informed us that the client would require extensive restorative dental treatment, including placement of a fully supported maxillary prosthesis as an interim measure and after several months of healing the client will require placement of six implants in the maxilla with bone grafting in the anterior maxilla and sinus augmentation in the posterior areas.

With periodontal cases there are always more risks in terms of causation, the client had aggressive periodontal disease and she had been a smoker, however we did have evidence to support the fact that with appropriate management the loss of teeth could have been avoided.

Just before trial the case settled for £45,000.
