If you want to have a strong and healthy smile for your vacation, then there are things you can do before you leave. This can reduce your chances of experiencing a dental problem or dental emergency while you’re on the road. Our dentists, Drs. Gleich and Jensen, are happy to help you have the top-notch smile and oral health you deserve by encouraging you to do the following things:

-Visit our office for a checkup: This is recommended because our dental team will deeply clean your smile, strengthen your teeth and treat any dental issues if necessary. This can help you have the top-notch teeth, gums and smile you need to prevent problems and emergencies while you’re away.

-Finish any dental restoration treatments: Sometimes dental implant, dental bridge and dental crown treatments have different phases. If you’re in the middle of the treatment and you currently have a temporary restoration, it’s best to complete the treatment before you go. This is because the temporary restoration might not hold up while you’re exploring, trying new foods and doing other vacation-related things.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Brushing twice a day, flossing once a day and rinsing daily can help you have clean, strong and healthy teeth, especially if you use fluoride oral hygiene products. So, make sure to clean and care for your smile regularly.
