Jeff Gray DDS Tooth Tips For Traveling

Allan S. Thomas, Cosmetic & General Dentistry Tooth Tips For Traveling

If you live in the San Diego area and are planning to take a vacation or business trip soon, I recommend you coordinate your dental care with your travel schedule. It’s always a good idea to have a checkup with your San Diego cosmetic dentist prior to leaving on long vacations, especially if your trip is taking you to developing areas without good dental care options. This quick checkup will help you be sure that your mouth is ready to travel.

More importantly, if you have any dental procedures scheduled before you leave, discuss it with your San Diego dentist. A large number of sedation dentistry procedures are actually surgical procedures. This means that your body will need more time to heal than you may realize.

Also, if you’re leaving the San Diego area by plane, you should be aware that changes in the cabin pressure of the airplane may cause tooth pain or discomfort for patients who have just had oral surgery. In addition, make sure you are aware of any necessary follow-up appointments with your San Diego sedation dentist  before you schedule a vacation.

I’m Dr. Allan Thomas and I want San Diego residents to be informed about their dental care. My cosmetic dental practice offers:

  • dental implants
  • porcelain veneers
  • dental crowns
  • Invisalign invisible braces
  • fresh breath treatment

If you are looking for general dental care or quality cosmetic dentistry in San Diego or the surrounding areas, please call us today and let our trust-building staff take care of you.
