How to Prepare for a Dental Emergency on Vacation

Posted .

Do you want to prepare for dental emergencies on your vacation? If so, our dentists are more than happy to help you. This is because they want you to enjoy yourself while you’re on vacation instead of worrying about how to deal with dental emergencies. So, to help you prepare for dental emergencies, our dentists encourage you to do the following things:

-Pack a handkerchief or gauze: These things can help you if you have injured your smile and if you are bleeding. Place the handkerchief or gauze over the injured tissues and apply pressure to stop the bleeding.

-Pack a small container with a lid: This can help you keep a knock-out tooth alive. Fill the container will saltwater or milk and then place the tooth inside to keep it moist and fresh. You can also place pieces of a chipped or broken tooth in this container. However, you won’t need to fill it with water or milk.

-Pack your dentists’ number: It’s very important to call our dentists when you’re experiencing an emergency. Our dental team will help you through the situation. If you won’t be back soon, we will help you find a dentist nearby who can help you restore your smile as soon as possible.
