Tips For Dental Care While On Vacation

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of tips to follow while on vacation to help maintain your oral health.
Tip #1: Try to schedule a preventive care visit before your vacation. Get your mouth, teeth, and gums checked for any complex dental issues.
Tip #2: Make sure you practice normal brushing and flossing while on vacation. Don’t forget to floss at the appropriate times. Just because you’re on vacation doesn’t mean your oral hygiene has to suffer.
Tip #3: Be prepared for a dental emergency. Establish a lasting relationship with a dentist you trust is important. If you suffer from a dental emergency, give Dr. Cranham a call, he will work with you to help resolve your dental emergency as soon as possible.
Tip #4: Get a pack of ADA approved gum. We understand there isn’t alway time to brush or you may not be able to brush depending on where you are vacationing. Some gum is an approved short-term alternative to brushing.
Tip #5: Make sure you pack your toothbrush correctly. Bacteria can grow on an improperly stored toothbrush. After brushing, keep your toothbrush in a properly ventilated area.
