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 radiographs are essential to document the accident in order to announce it to the insurance. A form (LAA or LaMal) is sent to the dentist after a simple telephone call by the patient or parent. This one will then sent the completed questionnaire to the Insurance Company who will register a reference number for the file.
