If you live in the Denver area and are planning to take a vacation or business trip soon, we recommend you coordinate your dental care with your travel schedule. It’s always a good idea to have a checkup with your Lone Tree dentist prior to leaving on long vacations, especially if your trip is taking you to developing areas without good dental care options. This quick checkup will help you be sure that your mouth is ready to travel.
More importantly, if you have any dental procedures scheduled before you leave, discuss them with your Lone Tree dentist. A large number of dental procedures are actually considered surgical procedures. This means that your body will need more time to heal than you may realize.
Also, if you’re leaving the Highlands Ranch, Greenwood Village, or Littleton area by plane, you should be aware that changes in the cabin pressure of the airplane may cause tooth pain or discomfort for patients who have just had oral surgery. In addition, make sure you are aware of any necessary follow-up appointments with your Lone Tree dentist or orthodontist before you schedule a vacation.
We’re Drs. Almeida & Bell and we want Denver residents to be informed about their dental care. Our Lone Tree practice offers:
If you are looking for general dental care or quality cosmetic dentistry in the Highlands Ranch, Greenwood Village, or Littleton areas, please call us today and let our warm and professional staff take care of you.
