At Durango Dentistry, we know summertime is traditionally a time when many of us travel, whether to see extended family, explore our state via road trip, or hopping on a plane to fly to new destinations. To maximize your enjoyment and peace of mind, it helps to pack wisely.

Dr. Greg Mann and our team in Durango, Colorado, know that when it comes to dental care, you want to be prepared and continue to care for the smile you have worked so hard to achieve. To keep caring for the smile you have worked so hard to achieve, remember to keep up your daily oral hygiene routine and pack a dental emergency kit, just in case. So what 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.

So, please feel free to give our dedicated team a call if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule a visit before you head out. Whether you are re-connecting with loved ones at your annual family reunion, or swimming with the dolphins in Aruba, from all of us at Durango Dentistry, we wish you safe and healthy travels!
