It is estimated that over six million car accidents occur every year in the U.S., many of which include injuries to drivers and passengers. When someone is injured in a vehicle crash, there is a good chance the medical care for their injuries will be covered by an insurance claim or injury lawsuit. Dental injuries from car accidents are common – almost 20% of car accident injuries involve the oral tissues. At Grateful Dental, we work with patients and their attorneys to ensure they get the dental care they need for their auto accident dental injuries.

Common Dental Injuries from Auto Accidents

When you are in an auto accident, head injuries are likely to occur. The jarring motion, airbags, flying objects and other hazards can impact the head, including the jaw area. Victims of auto accidents may have multiple injuries, some that can be cared for at the emergency room, but not their dental injuries. Hospital emergency rooms are not equipped to repair damaged teeth after a car accident. Some of the typical dental injuries after auto accidents include:

  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Missing or knocked-out teeth
  • Broken restorations (crowns, fillings, implants, dentures or dental bridges)

When a car accident victim has extensive dental damage, they deserve to have their dental work covered as part of their accident claim. Our team at Grateful Dental works with attorneys and their clients to ensure that their dental injuries receive premium dental care at our center in Marietta, GA.

MedPay Coverage – Up To $5,000 For Dental Injuries
