You don’t want to be dealing with a dental emergency while you are visiting loved ones out of town. To help you avoid dental emergencies over the holiday season, we can offer you some helpful tips to follow.

If at all possible, don’t leave town if you are undergoing major dental treatment, especially if the dental work requires more than one appointment, or else you may leave with only half the work done and a higher risk of dental pain. Plan your treatment to have it completed before the holidays or hold off until the new year.

If you have a damaged or loose tooth or dental appliance, address it now before your trip. Otherwise, you may need to duck out of holiday plans to locate an out-of-town dentist.

Maintain your oral hygiene routine every day to keep your teeth and gums in great shape and stop tooth decay or gum disease from ruining your holiday. When packing your suitcase, be sure to include your toothpaste, toothbrush, mouthwash, and dental floss so that you always have them with you and can care for your smile twice a day.

These tips will help you to better enjoy the holidays by minimizing your risk of a dental emergency. For more information on how to prevent dental emergencies, schedule a quick visit with Dr. Linh Nguyen by contacting Best Dentistry at 206-783-3000 today.
