Whether it’s for a family vacation, or whether you travel all throughout the year for business, it always helps to have some kind of plan in place should you have a dental emergency away from home.
For today’s blog, we’re offering two quick tips for keeping your smile safe while traveling this summer!
Quick Tip #1: Create A Dental Emergency Travel Kit
The last thing on your mind as you prepare for a vacation is a medical emergency of some kind. And we certainly hope you don’t have one! But we also know that accidents and emergencies happen to the best of us and that the more prepared you are, the more smoothly things will go if you have a plan.
We recommend keeping a small travel kit on hand for dental emergencies. You might want to include things like OTC pain relievers, gauze pads, a dry washcloth, a small container with a lid in case you need to keep a knocked out tooth safe until you reach emergency services, and the name and number for our San Antonio dental office!

Quick Tip #2: Keep Your Teeth And Gums Clean
Vacation is the perfect time put the diet aside and let yourself indulge in all sorts of interesting new foods and drinks. With that in mind, you might be eating a little more sugary, convenient processed foods while you’re traveling. You can enjoy it, but don’t let your smile suffer in the meantime!
Carry around some dental flossers and a travel size toothbrush and tube of toothpaste. That way you can brush and floss while you’re out and about seeing all the sights. Depending on your travel plans, this may not be practical for your itinerary. If that’s the case, you can always just make sure to give your mouth a good rinse with water after you eat. This will help keep your teeth and gums safe from harmful bacteria that like to gorge on the leftover food particles from your last tasty treat!
