04 Feb Dental accident
An accident in dentistry is a sudden and involuntary incident causing breakage, mobility or loss of one or several teeth.
In all cases it is important to react immediately so that emergency measures and a clinical evaluation are made rapidly. Photos and X-rays are essential to document the accident in order to announce it to the insurance. The Insurance Company will send a form (LAA or LaMal) to the dentist after a simple telephone call by the patient or parent. The dentist then sends the completed questionnaire back to the Insurance Company who will register a reference number for the file.
In case of a dental accident , you can either contact directly your dentist in Geneva, or consult the website of the Association of the Dentists of Geneva: www.amdg.ch to find the dentist on call.
