No one likes going to the dentist, and even less when it's not your regular dentist. But teeth can crack and infections can strike, regardless of where you are in the world. A pitted olive that wasn't; a very, very sticky caramel... it's the worst sort of surprise. World Nomads can help you out with emergency dental cover.
If something happens, we only cover healthy teeth and teeth with fillings. We may cover those teeth if you suddenly have
Cover is limited, and we may need to talk to your dentist back home to see what your teeth were like before you left. Just remember, the policy comes with a $100 excess which will be deducted from your claim.
In short, pretty much anything that's not on the list above. Specifically, there are a few straight-up things you're never covered for:
A lot of the time, our cover will be limited to patching the problem, such as a temporary filling, a pain-relieving injection, that sort of thing. The big stuff will have to wait until you get home. As always, read the policy wording and check out our article on dental cover before you buy.
It’s essential that you get in contact with our Sydney based emergency assistance team as soon as possible so that our teams can support you from the time your fall sick of get injured until the time you get home.
So that our Emergency Assistance teams can assist you quickly, please be ready with the following:
While on a white water rafting tour I broke my two front teeth. This happened when I lost balance while going over a rapid, resulting in the back of my paddle hitting my mouth and breaking the lower half of my right front tooth and leaving a smaller fracture in the left front tooth. Immediately following the tour the guide assisted me in finding a local dentistry where I could get the emergency treatment for the pain and to repair the teeth. Because of the damage to the right front tooth it required a full crown, while the crack in the left tooth could be repaired with a veneer. This was a temporary repair and long term it was also recommended that I may also need a root canal.
