Here’s a 2 minutes and 07 seconds Tips: How to deal with a Dental Emergency while Travelling? video. See full transcript below.
If you are planning a vacation outside Australia or anywhere else, don’t allow a simple toothache ruined your trip. Before you travel, a comprehensive dental examination is crucial particularly if going to remote areas or developing countries with no access to safe dental care. Before you go, make an appointment with your dentist providing adequate time to finish any needed dental treatment. Pain can be triggered in an untreated tooth especially if you are travelling on air.
When a dental emergency occurs, here are some simple tips you can do while you’re far away from your dentist. If you’re experiencing a toothache, rinse your mouth with warm water, floss the teeth lightly and take an anti-inflammatory painkiller such as ibuprofen. If a broken tooth is an issue, clean the area by rinsing your mouth with warm water. Then, use cold compresses on the affected area to keep swelling down. If your tooth has been knocked out, hold the tooth by the crown and clean the root of the tooth with water if it is dirty. Avoid scrubbing or removing any attached tissue fragments. Australian Dental Association suggests that a tooth must be soaked in a cup of milk if you can’t hold the tooth back in its socket, and then see a dentist as soon as possible.
If the pain is unbearable or has persisted, you need to get to a dentist immediately. If you would like additional information on dental concerns when you’re travelling, contact or visit your reliable dentist in Geelong here at All Smiles Dental.
