If you’re about to hit the road, it’s best to plan for your smile. No one wants to experience a dental emergency, especially if they are away from home, so our Distinctive Dental Services team is happy to help you keep your smile and oral health in tip-top shape as you travel. We recommend doing the following things:

-Avoid major dental treatment: It’s not the best idea to start major dental treatment before you leave on your trip because oftentimes the treatment requires multiple visits. If you leave in the middle of your treatment, you’ll be stuck caring more about your smile than your activities. So, it’s best to complete the treatment as well as fully recover before you leave or when you get back.

-Fix dental issues: If your filling or crown is becoming loose, it’s best to fix it before you hit the road. If you don’t, there is a chance that the restoration will fall out of your mouth and cause issues, which could be a big pain. So, please fix your broken or worn down restoration before you leave so you don’t have to worry about it.

-Maintain proper oral hygiene: The best way to have a strong and successful smile is to keep up on oral hygiene. Make sure you brush your teeth twice a day, floss your smile once a day, and rinse your mouth daily with mouthwash.
