While many of us are enjoying time away from work and school
by lounging at the beach, camping in the mountains, or embarking on another
summer adventure, we often don’t think about our oral health. As the Go-Gos
sang in their 1982 hit, “Vacation, all I ever wanted!” However, the Massachusetts
Dental Society (MDS) notes that one thing you don’t want on your summer
vacation is a dental disaster. Many dental emergencies require immediate
attention, which can create difficulties when you are traveling and away from
your familiar surroundings. Being prepared is the best way to handle any dental
situation that may arise, so it’s a good idea to perform some research prior to
your trip to identify dentists in the area in the event of an emergency.
