CT Dentists Encourage Travelers To Bring Back Memories, Not Cavities

Oral Health Tips When Traveling

The summer is winding down. With fewer trips to the Cape and weekend getaways people are getting back to the daily grind of work and school. However, Thanksgiving and the winter holidays are right around the corner, and before you know it, you will be planning your next adventure.

“While it may be tough to stick to a diet or exercise regimen while travelling,” stated Dr. David Fried, President of the Connecticut State Dental Association (CSDA). “There are a number of ways to ensure your dental hygiene routine never skips a day.”

The CSDA recommends that, if possible, schedule your next regular dental visit for a few weeks before you travel. This will give your dentist sufficient time to spot and address any potential issues. Additionally, you will be able to travel with less stress, knowing there are no problems.

Also, when planning to travel, it is good to enter your dentists contact information in your phone, in case you need to make a quick call to the dental office with an oral health concern. Your dentist will also be able to confirm whether any issue needs immediate treatment or if it can wait until you return.

“Maintaining regular visits is a great way to avoid dental issues while travelling,” assured Dr. Fried. “Therefore, be sure to schedule your regular dental appointments every six months.”
