Spring Break is one of the most eagerly anticipated holidays of the year for most families (and especially the children). After the long, cold months of winter, everyone is ready for a taste of better weather and an adventure to a warm, relaxing, or adventurous destination.
Nothing can derail a fun week, though, like a child’s dental emergency.
Pediatric dental emergencies are always unpleasant, but they are especially inconvenient when you’re on vacation. With the dental tips outlined below, you can be prepared for Spring Break dental emergencies and head out on vacation with peace of mind.
However, if your child should suffer a spring break dental accident, contact Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry at our Laredo, San Juan, or Mission locations and schedule an appointment today. As a leader in family dentistry, Little Heroes is always happy to help you care for your children’s dental health.
The best way to handle a dental emergency is to prevent it in the first place. Consider making an appointment with your children’s dentist before heading out of town to make sure their teeth are in optimal condition. You can help prevent many Spring Break dental emergencies by taking your child to a trusted family dentistry team for a thorough teeth cleaning, complete with fluoride treatment and x-rays, to determine if your child has any cavities. It’s always best to know before you head out of town.
Despite your best prevention efforts, dental emergencies can still happen during family vacations. Here is what you should you do if your child experiences tooth pain or damages their teeth during Spring Break when you are away from home and your children’s dentist.
Depending on the type of Spring Break dental emergency, you may need to find a dentist near you. According to the American Dental Association, good dental care is increasingly available in many parts of the world. If you have travel insurance, there is likely a hotline available that you can call to find a nearby dentist. Or use your online research skills (i.e. Google) to find a highly recommended family dentist in the city/area you are in.
Spring Break should be a fun time for your family. Arming yourself with these dental tips can help you enjoy peace of mind during your vacation and maximize the time you get to spend as a family.
