18 Jul Traveling this summer? Traveling kit is needed!
At the dental practice of Desiree T. Palmer, DMD, PA located in Durham, North Carolina, we see our patients heading out during the summertime, whether to visit extended family, explore our great state with a road trip, or boarding an airplane to fly to new destinations. To make the most of your enjoyment and peace of mind, you will want to pack wisely.
Dr. Desiree T. Palmer, Dr. Pereen M. K. Bubala, and Dr. Carlos Stringer Smith know that when it comes to dental care, preparedness and consistency are key to continuing to care for the smile you have worked hard to create. Please remember to keep up your daily oral hygiene routine, like brushing and flossing, and bring a dental emergency kit with you, just in case. So what are some things you should you pack in your emergency kit?
Dental Emergency Kit
Supplies: Dental picks, sterile gauze pads, cotton, tweezers, dental mirror or handheld mirror, cold pack, antimicrobial skin wipes.
Toothache & pain: Over-the-counter painkillers and oral antiseptic.
Loose crown, filling or braces: Petroleum jelly, temporary fillings, dental wax.
Bringing your dental emergency kit will help to ensure that your smile will be taken care of while you are away from home, until you can be seen by a dentist. So, if you have any questions, please feel free to give us call at 919-471-9106. Whether you are re-connecting with loved ones at your annual family reunion, or swimming with the dolphins in Maui, from all of us at Dr. Palmer’s office, we wish you safe, happy, and healthy travels!
