Whether you’re traveling for work or pleasure, the last thing you want to worry about is a dental issue or emergency. However, even though this is true, these situations and problems can still occur. Luckily, there are things you can do to reduce the chances of these things happening. To help you know more about those tips and details, Dr. Mark Kupec and our dental team are happy to share some information with you.

First, try not to begin a major dental treatment right before you leave. This is because oftentimes the treatment requires multiple visits. If you leave between appointments, you’ll be stuck thinking more about your smile than about your adventures. So, it’s best to complete the treatment and recovery period before you leave or wait to begin treatment until you get back.

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.
