Pugh v. New Castle County
Pugh v. New Castle County, IAB No. 1354747 (Nov. 16, 2015).
The Board holds that dental treatment, including dental implants, is causally related to a compensable work accident. Specifically, the claimant’s significant and rampant dental decay was caused by xerostomia, or dry mouth, resulting from medications used to treat his compensable low back injury.
