If you’re planning an extended trip, The Richardson Dentist reminds you to make sure it won’t interfere with any dental needs.
It’s always a good idea to have a checkup with us before leaving on long vacations, especially if your trip is taking you to areas without adequate dental care options. This quick check-up will help you be sure that your mouth is ready to travel.
Another important consideration; if you have any dental procedures scheduled before you leave, talk about 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 going 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. In addition, make sure you are aware of any necessary follow-up appointments before you schedule a vacation.
