Traveling can be stressful, especially when you have to worry about your smile. However, you don’t have to if you’re smart. In fact, there are things you can do to prevent dental emergencies and problems while you are traveling. To help you, Dr. Asal Shirazi and our dental team are happy to tell you what those things are!
First, it’s best to avoid starting major dental treatments before your trip. Sometimes these treatments require more than one dental appointment, which means you might get caught traveling with half of a repaired smile or you might even suffer from dental pain while you are on the road. So, it’s best to complete the treatment and healing period before your vacation or wait to fix your teeth until you come home.
Second, correct any troubled dental work. If you have a loose or worn down dental crown or dental filling, it’s best to fix it before you hit the road. If you don’t, the restoration might fall out of place and cause major issues and discomfort. You don’t want that to happen, do you? So, the best thing you can do is fix the issue before you begin your trip.
Third, keep up on oral hygiene. Brushing twice and flossing and rinsing once each day will help you avoid dental issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and other major dental issues while traveling.
