Take travel insurance

If you thought travel insurance is just to safeguard your belongings in case of theft or misplacement while traveling, you’re not digging deeper.

Travel insurance can also include any medical emergency you may encounter while on flight and you may require immediate treatment in a foreign land. See if your travel insurance includes dental emergencies or not and make sure you get that included. In case you experience extreme toothache, you should be able to visit the nearest dental clinic located where you’re going to avoid unnecessary delays.

Get dental check-up before flying.

Before a week or so of your scheduled flight, get an appointment with your dentist and have your fillings/crowns/implants checked for Any trapped air. At higher altitudes due to pressure difference, the air may expand or contract causing extreme discomfort and pain. To avoid such a situation, a dental check-up prior to your trip is a must.

Stick to your dental care routine

Whether you’re waiting at the terminal for a connecting flight or you’re on flight, you must stick to your dental care regime at all times. Continue with brushing and flossing and keep a travel dental kit separate for such occasions. That kit may include a dry and clean toothbrush, toothpaste, non fragrant waxed floss, mouthwash if prescribed, and painkillers prescribed by your dentist in case of acute dental pain. It’s always good to keep all these things handy to be prepared for any dental emergency.

Avoid travelers often ignore dental care while it should be included in your list of top most priorities. For expert dental care tips and for booking a quick dental appointment, visit AIMS Dentistry, the best dental clinic in Mississauga today.
