If you’ve had an accident which has caused damage to your teeth or gums, the costs of your dental treatment may be contributed to by ACC. Dental ACC treatment requires us to assess the damage to your mouth and register the accident with ACC.
If you suspect you have incurred any damage to your teeth or the surrounding tissue, don’t wait! Call us immediately on 09 416 5050. We’ll arrange an appointment as quickly as possible so we can examine the injury and get everything stabilised. This is important to do even if you’re not sure whether or not you have damaged your mouth. Sometimes the damage can only be determined through dental x-rays, or it may take days, weeks or even months to become apparent. Having an immediate assessment and registering your accident with ACC will assist with any claims that you might make in the future if a problem does develop.
We’ll submit your forms to ACC and they will let us know exactly what treatment they will contribute to.
