For when pain wipes the smile off your face.

Broken or chipped teeth can happen at any time. It can be seeded bread in Berlin, olives in Athens or dried fish in Krasnodar. If pain suddenly strikes, World Nomad travel insurance can cover the emergency dental treatment you need to get relief.

What does travel insurance cover for overseas dental? 

All of our policies can cover dental expenses if you've have to see a dentist while traveling for the immediate relief of sudden pain to healthy, natural teeth if:

  • You've get an unexpected infection
  • You've broken your tooth 
  • You injure your mouth or jaw in an accident

Not all of our policies are the same. Limits, terms and conditions of cover vary depending on the policy you buy and your past dental history.

What’s not covered

Travel insurance isn’t designed to cover everything. Common dental claims we see where there's no cover include:

  • General check-ups
  • Getting your teeth straightened in Thailand
  • New teeth or fillings following pain relieving treatment
  • Major dental work, such as crowns, dentures, bridges and implants
  • If you've bought a policy after the pain has set in
  • Non-emergency treatment that can wait until you return home (it's not health insurance, it's for travel emergencies)

This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. There are limits and conditions that apply, so for more information check out our article on dental cover and read your policy carefully before you buy.

I bit on something hard
