If you’re leaving on vacation, then the last thing you want to worry about are dental problems and dental emergencies while you’re on the road, right? Well, our dentists, Dr. Packard, Packard and Packard, has some good news for you. You can have a vacation-ready smile before you even get in the car! This can help you reduce your chances of running into any problems. To help you have a vacation-ready smile, they encourage you to do the following things:

-Visit our office for a checkup: This is important because your dental team can deeply clean your smile and strengthen your teeth, which can help you avoid dental problems and emergencies. Your dental team can also check for and treat any dental issues so you can have the top-notch smile you need while you’re away.

-Finish any dental restoration treatments: If you’re in the process of restoring your smile with dental bridge, dental implant or dental crown treatment, then it’s best to complete the treatment before you go. This is because the temporary restoration might not hold up while you’re trying new foods, exploring and doing other fun activities.

-Keep up on oral hygiene: Oral hygiene (like brushing twice a day and flossing and rinsing daily) can help you have clean, strong and healthy teeth and gums, which can help you prevent dental issues and emergencies. So, make sure to clean and care for your smile frequently.
