If you are interested in avoiding dental emergencies while you are traveling, our MI Beautiful Smile team is more than happy to help you! All you need to do are the following things and your smile will remain in tip-top shape:

-Avoid major dental treatment: If you need major dental treatment, like root canal therapy or dental crown placement, it’s best to wait until after your trip to get it started. If you start the treatment before, it’s possible that you will experience pain while you are on your trip, which is very inconvenient. Also, many treatments require multiple appointments, so if you leave in the middle of a treatment, you will have to worry about your restoration site rather than enjoy your activities.

-Fix dental issues: If your dental filling is becoming worn down or if your dental crown is coming loose, it’s important to fix them before you leave. That way, you don’t have to worry about your filling or crown falling out of your mouth. However, there are ways you can help the situation until you get back if this does indeed happen. Use over-the-counter dental cement to fill the hole in your tooth or to place the crown back in place.

-Maintain proper oral hygiene: If you stay dedicated to your oral hygiene routine while you are away, your smile will remain in top-notch condition and you won’t need to stress about tooth decay, gum disease, or any other issues. Just make sure to pack a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash before you leave.
