If you are scheduled for a long vacation or business trip, make sure you are taking any dental requirements into account.
It’s always a good idea to have a checkup with your dentist prior to leaving on long vacations, especially if your trip is taking you to developing areas without modern dental care. This quick check-up will help you be sure that your mouth is ready to travel.
Another critical consideration; if you have any dental procedures scheduled before you leave, talk about it with your dentist. Many dental procedures are actually surgical procedures. This means that your body will need more time to heal than you may realize.
Also, if you’re leaving by plane, you should be aware that changes in the cabin pressure may cause tooth pain or discomfort for patients who have just had oral surgery. Furthermore, make sure you are aware of any needed follow-up appointments with your dentist or orthodontist before you schedule a vacation.
