An insurance company in the USA paid the claim of a man who bit his own throat!
The man was playing tennis when he slipped, causing his false teeth to dislodge down his throat and enclose onto its flesh…
Bizarre dental insurance claims:
- hitting and breaking a tooth with a phone mouthpiece while blowing a kiss to fiancé on the other end
- breaking two teeth with swinging arms while dancing
- Swallowing a bridge due to shock after seeing dog get run over by a car
- Severely burning tongue after lighting a cigarette and accidentally throwing it away, while placing the lit match in mouth instead
