Dental emergencies are inconvenient, overwhelming, and even scary, especially when you’re on the road. However, there are things you can do to avoid dental emergencies, and our Comfort Dental Excellence team is happy to tell you all about them! You can do the following things for the best oral health possible while you travel:
-Avoid major dental treatment: Oftentimes, major dental treatment requires multiple visits, which is why our team recommends avoiding major treatment before you leave. If you happen to leave between your appointments, you will be stuck worrying about your smile instead of enjoying your activities. So, the best thing to do is wait until you get back from your trip to start treatment.
-Fix dental issues: If you currently have a loose filling, broken dental crown, or a dental cavity, it’s best to treat it before you go on your trip. If you don’t restore your smile, your filling or crown might fall out of your mouth or your cavity will cause major pain and discomfort. So, it’s best to treat the problem before it gets worse.
-Maintain proper oral hygiene: While you’re on the road, make sure you keep up on oral hygiene. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing each day will help you avoid tooth decay, gum disease, and other major dental issues while you are traveling.
Now, please remember that even if you do these four things, oral injuries can still occur, so it’s best to be prepared. So, to learn more about what to do during a dental emergency, please call 281.376.4533 today and schedule an appointment with your dentist in Spring, Texas. Dr. Kevin Harris and our team will be happy to give you all of the tips and information you need!
