Travel insurance for Overseas Dental

For when pain wipes the smile off your face.

  • Trusted by:

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 so you can keep traveling.

What does travel insurance cover for overseas dental? 

If you have to see a dentist while traveling for the immediate relief of sudden pain to healthy, natural teeth you can be covered if:

  • You get an unexpected infection
  • You've broken your tooth
  • You injure your mouth or jaw in an accident
  • Your pre-existing condition leads to a clinical emergency

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 isn't 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)

If you purchase your policy after you’ve already left your home country, there is a 72 hour waiting period before cover begins.

This is not a full list of what's covered and what's not covered. It is important that you read and understand your policy before you travel as your coverage is subject to certain limitations and exclusions.

How to get dental assistance

If you're in a serious accident, it’s essential that you get in contact with our emergency assistance teams as soon as possible so that our teams can support you.

So that our Emergency Assistance teams can assist you quickly, please be ready with the following:

  • Your location

If you've already visited a dentist and received emergency treatment, you can submit your claim online.

I bit on something hard

A bone chipped my front tooth, on the top row, and cracked it. Blood started to run down so I had an emergency visit to the dentist to repair it.
