Bags? Check. Passport? Check. Ready for much needed break? Check.
But have you booked in to see your dentist? Um. No.
It’s a traveler's nightmare. Far away from home (and your regular dentist), and you’re struck down with a dental issue: toothache, broken tooth or much worse.
It’s all about Prevention
Of course, there will be situations that arise and cannot be avoided. However, before any extended trip, especially if far away from home or in developing countries, it’s a good idea to book an appointment to see your dentist before you leave. A check-up and clean is a great starting point and will be the most effective way to determine if there are any underlying issues that should be addressed. If you are currently experiencing dental discomfort, such as a nagging toothache, sore gums or things just "don’t seem right", don’t delay and hope that they will settle, or wait upon your return to have it addressed. These issues can be serious and can flair up whilst away. If you are in a middle of a procedure such as Root Canal Treatment, complete the treatment before you leave.
