Protect Your Smile During Summer Air Travel
Many families utilize summer time months for their family vacations, which may include some air travel. Although flights can be fun and exciting, when you reach a certain altitude the pressure may cause some pain or discomfort. If you have any dental conditions that you are not aware of, such as a cavity or infection, your flight can become a very unpleasant experience. If you are planning air travel this summer, there are some simple steps you can take for you and your family to ensure a painless and worry-free family adventure.
You can protect your smile during summer air travel by:
- Staying on top of your routine dental checkups – Make an appointment with Palm Harbor Premier Dental prior to your air travel. This will alleviate the possibility of any undiscovered dental problems that can cause discomfort during your flight. Also make your dental checkup far enough in advance to allow enough time to have any restorative work completed that may be found during your dental exam.
- Packing the right oral health care essentials pre-flight – If you are bringing carry-on bags, packing travel-size toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss can be quite helpful. Having a pain reliever on hand if you have concerns of potential discomfort once you are in the air is also a good idea. Pressure can sometimes cause a certain amount of discomfort even if your oral health is in check.
At Palm Harbor Premier Dental, we love sharing helpful tips so you can be prepared at worry-free on your next vacation. Protect your smile during summer air travel and give us a call to schedule your next dental checkup. This will help ward off any potential issues that cause a “less than favorable” flight. We look forward to hearing from you!
