tooth tips for travelling

If you are scheduled for a long vacation or business trip, the team at Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin reminds you to take your dental health into account.

It’s always a good idea to have a checkup prior to leaving on long vacations, especially if your trip is taking you to developing areas without adequate dental care options. 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, discuss it with us. 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 required follow-up appointments with your Wetaskiwin dentist or orthodontist before you schedule a vacation.

At Wetaskiwin Family Dental in Wetaskiwin, the dental health of each our patients is always our top concern. Our services include general and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
