If you live in the Birmingham MI 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 Birmingham MI 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 Birmingham MI cosmetic dentist. A large number of dental 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 Birmingham MI 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 Birmingham MI dentist or orthodontist before you schedule a vacation.
