A dental problem when you’re far from home is a traveler’s worst nightmare. How will you cope with a dental emergency? What can you do to prevent dental problems from occurring? Read on for some protective tips. And always remember to take out visitor insurance coverage. If you do suffer tooth problems abroad you’re covered for treatment with visitors health insurance.
Have a dental checkup before you travel. This is one great way to help prevent serious problems when you are abroad. Get your teeth cleaned properly and have any fix-up jobs completed in good time before you go.
Wait until it is safe to travel after you have had root canal treatment. And if you are traveling to a less developed control consider hepatitis B immunization, which will protect you if you need to get treatment from a non-vaccinated dentist abroad.
When you travel, take care of your teeth with regular brushing. Avoid chewing on hard objects like ice, hard candy and tough meat. Don’t try to open bottles or cut tape with your teeth.
