This summer it may be nice to get away from everything, enjoying the fresh sights and sounds of travel. However, no matter where you go, your teeth are always going to be right there with you.

That’s why most dentists recommend coming in for a checkup before leaving on any kind of vacation. Here’s why that’s something you should keep in mind this summer.

Preventing Dental Emergencies

Anytime you travel, you leave the comfort and amenities of home behind for the chance to experience something new. One important aspect of that is that the dentist you trust won’t be nearby. That means that if you wind up dealing with a dental emergency, you’ll have to deal with a dentist you don’t know and, importantly, doesn’t have a sense of your medical history.

By seeing your regular dentist for a checkup before you leave you can make sure that you won’t have to deal with any kind of dental emergency on your trip.

Enjoying Local Food

Trying local cuisine is one of the best parts of traveling anywhere, and in the summertime, that’s even more true. However, if you’re dealing with cavities, gum disease, or other latent oral health problems, that can stand in the way of you enjoying your food to the fullest.

Your dentist can help you to address these issues, making your vacation much more enjoyable. From ice cream to snow cones, you won’t have to let tooth sensitivity get in the way of your good time.

Making a Good Impression

When you go somewhere new, you have plenty of opportunities to meet new people. Whether it’s a friendly local or someone else staying at your hotel, it’s always a good idea to try and start off on the right foot. Having a smile you can be proud of is a great way to make that happen.

Your dentist will finish up any routine cleaning by polishing surface stains off of your teeth, which can make a huge difference in how your smile looks. That can give you the confidence to put yourself out there.
