Many families spend weeks or months planning for the perfect trip. However, in all of their excitement, they often forget about preparing for a dental emergency that could occur. There is no perfect time for a dental emergency to occur but it’s worst when you are in the middle of a trip, especially if you are traveling overseas. While traveling overseas you will be faced with language barriers in addition to finding a competent dentist you can trust. Many countries have dental associations that can refer you to a dentist locally if needed.
One of the most important things we advise our patients to do before going on a trip is to schedule a dental exam with Littleton dentist- Dr. Greg Herzberg. At this appointment, Dr. Herzberg can do a full oral evaluation to make sure any dental problems will be taken care of prior to traveling because pressure changes, especially during air travel, can cause pain in an untreated tooth.
Dr. Greg Herzberg and the team at Ken Caryl Dentistry wish you safe and happy travel this holiday season!
