If you have any accident involving your teeth and jaws, ACC will cover the majority of the treatment costs. It is important to seek treatment quickly and at Team Dental’s Tauranga and Christchurch branches, we are open 7 days a week, 364 days a year. If the accident occurs outside of practicing hours, we would advise you to go to your local hospital emergency room where medical professionals can provide first line treatment. At Team Dental we will register your accident with ACC and get the injury in a comfortable state. We can provide ongoing treatment if required or can refer back to your usual dental professional.
If a piece of tooth is broken, please bring it when you have your appointment as sometimes it can be re-bonded on. Also if you have had a tooth knocked out, store it in milk or under your tongue until you can seek further dental treatment.
