Whether you’re leaving town for a road trip or an adventure overseas, you likely have lots of things on your to-do list – from booking hotels to packing your toiletries. One thing that should be on this list, but is often completely forgotten about, is scheduling a dental checkup. If that’s not already on your calendar, then keep reading to learn four reasons to visit your dentist before leaving for summer vacation!

1. Prevent Dental Emergencies While Traveling

Can you imagine getting to your destination, only to find out that your tooth is cracked, your gums are infected, or your dental crown is broken? To help prevent that from happening, visit your dental team before you leave town. In addition to completing a comprehensive oral exam, they will clear away plaque and polish your teeth, leaving you with a smile that looks as great as it feels.

2. Take Advantage of a More Flexible Schedule

Summer kicks off with Memorial Day and wraps up on Labor Day; two three-day weekends! Plus, there’s the 4th of July in between and the days feel significantly longer since the sun doesn’t set at 4 PM. Simply put, the warmer months often come with a bit more flexibility, so it’s a good idea to add your semi-annual dental checkup and cleaning to your list of pre-vacation to-dos.

3. Enhance Your Smile Before You Leave

Have your once-white teeth started to look a bit yellow and dull? Is there a noticeable chip or crack that has always bothered you? If so, there’s no time like the present to talk to your dentist about your treatment options! That way, you don’t feel like you have to hide your smile for photos on vacation. Instead, you can fully enjoy the moment and take countless pictures to preserve the memories.

4. Early Prep for Back-to-School Season

Right now, it seems like August and September are so far away. That said, it won’t be long before you’re setting up carpools, purchasing school supplies, and buying Halloween candy. So, it’s worth considering scheduling your biannual dental checkup and cleaning now. Come fall, you’ll be happy that you did!
