What to Do When You Have an Oral Emergency While Traveling

Posted .

Dental emergencies can arise anytime, including when you are on the road or traveling. While inconvenient, there are some precautions you can take to lower the chances of having an incident. To help you lower the chances of experiencing a dental issue or emergency, Dr. Tatyana Kolodner and our experienced team have some tips and information to share with you today.

— If you are traveling far from home, it’s a good to wait until you return to begin major dental procedures such as dental crown treatment or root canal therapy. This is will help you avoid experiencing pain throughout your vacation or leaving in the middle stages of the treatment. If there is no way around this, be sure to find a dentist in the area you will be staying who can help you if necessary.

— If you have a cavity or if your dental restorations are beginning to wear down, consider treating them before you start your trip. This way you won’t have to find a temporary dentist while you are away from home. In addition, if you take care of these beforehand, you won’t have to worry about them while you are enjoying your trip.

— Take good care of your smile on the road. Keeping up your oral hygiene routine will help your teeth and gums to stay in tip-top shape and you won’t need to worry about cavities, periodontal disease, or other dental issues. Pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash before you leave so you can brush twice a day and floss and rinse once a day to keep your smile healthy.
